AMC Renews 'Interview With the Vampire' for Season 3

Ahead of the drama's second season finale on Sunday, AMC has today renewed its original drama series Interview With the Vampire for a third season. The cable network's Anne Rice Immortal Universe currently features three series - with Interview With the Vampire, Mayfair Witches and the upcoming The Talamasca.

In the third season, resentful of the perfunctory portrayal in the trashy bestseller "Interview With The Vampire," the Vampire Lestat sets his story straight in a way only the Vampire Lestat can - by starting a band and going on tour. Gabrielle. Nicholas. Magnus. Marius. Those Who Must Be Kept. They join Louis, Armand, Molloy, Sam, Raglan, Fareed and others we can't tell you about yet on a sexy pilgrimage across space, time and trauma. No Auto-Tuning. No Trigger Warnings. All Feels Amplified.

The drama currently stars Jacob Anderson, Sam Reid, Eric Bogosian, Assad Zaman, Delainey Hayles and Ben Daniels.

Rolin Jones developed the drama based on the novels by Anne Rice. He executive produces with Mark Johnson, Mark Taylor and Christopher Rice. AMC Studios and Gran Via Productions produce.

"When you buy the rights to 18 Anne Rice novels that have sold more than 150 million copies, in your wildest dreams you hope there's a show as good as Interview on the other end," said Dan McDermott, President of Entertainment, AMC Studios and AMC Networks. "What Rolin has done with these stories and characters, working so closely with Mark, as the steward of this universe, has exceeded the loftiest version of our expectations. We can't wait to see where this creative team takes the series from here and know we are walking alongside an incredibly loyal and passionate base of fans who feel as strongly about this material as we do."

"Thank you to the brilliant casts and crews of the first two seasons that got us to this day," added Jones. "Thank you to the rabid, beautifully unwell fandom that scaled the castle walls to get us to this day. Thank you to Dan McDermott, Ben Davis for the funds and tools to continue the great work of dramatizing Anne Rice's extraordinary novels. And sincere apologies to the family and friends of actor Sam Reid, for the possession that continues to this day. Monsieur L extends his promise to return his body upon cancellation (may that evening never come.)"
