In recent years, one of the most popular horror franchises has been Interview with the Vampire. Fans were thrilled when a TV series based on Anne Rice’s novel series The Vampire Chronicles began to be developed in recent years. The story was originally made into a 1990s film starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.
The television series, which made a commitment to remain “truer to the books,” was well-liked by viewers and critics, earning a 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Happily, a second season has already been confirmed, so the show is far from over.
However, what is going on with this second season, and when will it be released? Read on to learn everything we currently know.
Interview with the Vampire Season 2 Release Date Teased
Despite its early announcement, Interview with the Vampire Season 2 is only expected to arrive sometime in “early-to-mid 2024”. However, even that release window is a bit doubtful due to the interruptions in production (more on that below). Stay tuned for the latest update on the official release date of Interview with the Vampire Season 2.
Who will appear in the upcoming season of Interview with the Vampire?
The majority of the main cast is expected to return for Season 2.
- Jacob Anderson as Louis de Pointe du Lac
- Sam Reid as Lestat de Lioncourt
- Delainey Hayles as Claudia
- Eric Bogosian as Daniel Molloy
- Assad Zaman as Rashid/Armand
- Ben Daniels as Santiago
Santiago, a brand-new character for the second season, is a member of the Parisian Theatre des Vampires and may serve as one of the season’s enemies.
The role of Claudia has undergone a huge change in the casting because Bailey Bass, who played her in Season 1, will not be back. She will be replaced by Delainey Hayles.
The Plot of Interview With The Vampire Season 2
The Interview with the Vampire plot first appeared to be able to finish one book with each season, however, that turned out to be a misunderstanding. Instead, only a portion of the first book’s tale was completed by the end of the first season. Thus, before continuing the series, the plot of Interview with the Vampire will wrap up the events of the first novel. The first season ended abruptly as well after Claudia persuaded Louis to assist her in killing Lestat so they could escape his grasp. Lestat was ultimately saved by Louis, who was unable to save the vampire, who instead confined him to a rat-infested dump where he may recover over time.
It’s also intriguing to note that Louis misled reporter Daniel in the first season, at least when it came to key aspects of his tale. This raises a lot of issues because it renders Louis an unreliable narrator, leaving viewers unsure of the veracity of what he has stated, at least when taken at face value. One wonders if the tragedy will play out the same on the AMC series or if it will change things up. Those who have read the books are aware that there will be a tragedy in the second season. Additionally, it was revealed at the conclusion of Season 1 of Interview with the Vampire that Rashid was actually Armand from the books.
Best Way to Watch Interview with The Vampire Season 2
The network aired Interview with the Vampire, an AMC original series. The series was also made available as a streaming service on AMC+ for cordless viewing. When the second season debuts, AMC+ members will probably benefit from watching the first episode three days before it airs on TV, followed by one week of advance viewing before the episodes air on AMC. We anticipate that the second season will be released on the same schedule as the first, at least. In the interim, you may catch up on all seven episodes of Season 1 of Interview with the Vampire, which is presently streaming on AMC+, if you haven’t had a chance to see it.
