The cultural chokehold vampires–Lady Dimitrescu, for example–have over us continues: Anne Rice’s iconic Interview with a Vampire is coming to AMC.
Casting hasn’t begun yet, but AMC and it’s streaming arm, AMC+, plan to launch the first eight-episode season in 2022. Producer Mark Johnson, known for Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, will be on board the project. Co-creator of HBO’s Perry Mason, Rolin Jones, will co-create, write, and run the new Interview with a Vampire series. Rice and her son, Christopher Rice, will also participate as non-writing executive producers.
AMC acquired the rights to 18 of Rice’s works, back in May 2020, which includes the popular Vampire Chronicles and Mayfair Witches series.
