What adventures lie ahead for Anne Rice’s vampires?
The first season of Interview with the Vampire–the AMC adaptation of Anne Rice’s 1976 horror classic–recently wrapped up, and the series creator and showrunner is already discussing story ideas for the eight-episode Season 2.
The show–created by Rolin Jones–has so far followed Louis (Jacob Anderson), his “maker” Lestat (Sam Reid) and Claudia (Bailey Bass) in an “epic story of love, blood and the perils of immortality.”
Jones–writing on AMC’s blog--said the challenge for Season 2 is that “in the second half of (the original novel), there’s less plot than in the first half–and so much internal dialogue. What we’re finding is, even though it’s not giving you a wealth of plot, there are really big emotional tentpoles.”
Jones added “there are emotional moments within our plot that might be slightly different from what’s in the book, but I’m feeling really excited about that.”
The second part of the novel, Jones said, is the first episode of Season 2. “We’re going to Europe to film that, and then we’re going to Paris. We’re going to see what coven life is all about,” he said.
Then, Jones explained, “as we teased a little in Season 1, the idea of memory and what is true and what isn’t is a big player in Season 2. It’s all going towards, ‘Who am I? How did I get here? What is to become of me?'”
Dan McDermott of AMC praised the “scope and breadth” of the series. “We’re thrilled that this story will continue,” he said. “This is only the beginning of an entire universe featuring enthralling stories and characters.”
