Interview with the Vampire has been renewed for Season 3 by AMC Networks.

The news was announced ahead of the June 30 finale for Season 2. Based on the novels of Anne Rice, the series stars Jacob Anderson as Louis de Pointe du Lac, a sensitive Louisiana aristocrat from the 1800s who was turned into a vampire by his rival and former lover, Lestat de Lioncourt (Sam Reid). Delainey Hayles joined the season to portray Claudia, the vampire woman who was turned as a child. Claudia was originally portrayed by Bailey Bass, who departed the series due to scheduling conflicts.

While Season 2 was about Louis and Claudia in Europe with the Theatre Des Vampires–and Louis’ new relationship with the Theatre’s leader Armand (Assad Zaman), Season 3 will follow Lestat as he decides to set the record straight about his life with Louis while forming a rock band.

According to the synopsis reported by Deadline:

“In Season 3, the Vampire Lestat sets his story straight in the only way he can–by starting a band and going on tour. Gabrielle. Nicholas. Magnus. Marius. Those Who Must Be Kept. They join Louis, Armand, Molloy, Sam, Ragland, Fareed and others we can’t tell you about yet on a sexy pilgrimage across space, time and trauma.”

Series creator, writer and showrunner Rolin Jones released a statement about his excitement for the story’s continuation. Thanking the casts and crews who made the first two seasons possible, as well as the “rabid, beautifully unwell fandom,” Jones also gave out other acknolwedgments to producers who made the series possible.

“Thank you to Dan McDermott, Ben Davis for the funds and tools to continue the great work of dramatizing Anne Rice’s extraordinary novels,” he said, according to Deadline, before adding a funny tribute to Reid’s family.

“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).”
