Initially, a book penned by the renowned artist Anne Rice nearly fifty years ago, Interview With The Vampire will make a comeback to the small screen via AMC, the network ordered an eight-episode debut season that will release this year in exclusivity on that network and its streaming service. After penning a deal with Anne Rice, AMC got the rights for eighteen titles of her work, and that included the vast “Vampire Chronicles”, “Mayfair Witches”, “Interview With The Vampire”, “Blood Communion: A Tale Of Prince Lestat”, “The Queen of The Damned”, “Prince Lestat”, “The Vampire Lestat” and many more!

What Is The Plot About?
This AMC series is taking a spin. While The plot involves Lestat turning Louis into a vampire, the backdrop of this bloodsucker tale won’t be some fancy European castle. Instead, the showrunners are taking us to the early 20th Century New Orleans, Louisiana, in the United States. Here, we will see how this tale of love, immortality, and blood intertwines right in the middle of a raucous context, as New Orleans at that time was extravagant, violent, discriminative, and complicated.
