AMC recently renewed its Interview with the Vampire series, and it’s showing similar faith in its adaptation of the Mayfair Witches novels. Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches has been renewed for a second season.
The series, which premiered on AMC and AMC+ in January, focuses on an intuitive young neurosurgeon who discovers that she is the unlikely heir to a family of witches. As she grapples with her newfound powers, she must contend with a sinister presence that has haunted her family for generations.
“The success of both Mayfair Witches and Interview with the Vampire once again illustrates the strength and mastery of Anne Rice’s work,” AMC’s Mark Johnson said in a statement. “The fact that these first two shows are performing so splendidly with a TV audience gives us much pride in what we’ve already done and great anticipation for the storytelling opportunities yet to come.”
Esta Spalding serves as showrunner on Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches, in addition to writing and executive producing alongside Michelle Ashford. Alexandra Daddario, Harry Hamlin, Annabeth Gish, and Jack Huston star.
