AMC Renews 'Mayfair Witches' for Season 2

AMC has today renewed its original drama series Mayfair Witches for a second season. Production on the new season is expected to begin later this year in New Orleans.

The drama stars Alexandra Daddario, Jack Huston, Tongayi Chirisa and Harry Hamlin.

Michelle Ashford and Esta Spalding developed the drama based on the novel trilogy by Anne Rice. They executive produce with Mark Johnson, Jeff Freillich and Michael Uppendahl. AMC Studios produces.

"We are thrilled with the reaction to this series, especially in the wake of the incredibly strong reception to Interview [With the Vampire], and can't wait to bring the fans second seasons of both series in this rich, vibrant and expanding universe based on the works of Anne Rice," said Dan McDermott, President of Entertainment, AMC Networks. "In a business in which 'nobody knows anything,' we knew what we were hoping for in terms of building a television franchise around these remarkable characters and stories, and to see these shows arrive and captivate viewers in the way they have is so gratifying and energizing for everyone involved, and there is so much yet to come."

"Anne Rice's 'Lives of the Mayfair Witches' is a sumptuous epic tale that we've only begun to explore," added Spalding. "I'm so grateful to the fans and viewers of the show who've given us the chance to continue telling this story."
