The bite is back.
Interview with the Vampire–the AMC adaptation of the 1976 Anne Rice horror classic that wrapped up its first successful season last November–will starting shooting its eight-episode Season 2 in April, according to a report in Variety.
“We’re ramping up now,” said executive producer Mark Johnson. “We start shooting in April, and the bulk of it takes place in Paris.” The filming on the second season reportedly will wrap up in August. No debut date has yet been announced.
Series producer Adam O’Byrne added that Season 2 will introduce more vampires–especially those from the Theatre des Vampires. “We will be introduced to the vampire Santiago, who’s a bit of a malefactor,” O’Byrne said.
In addition, Madeline–a companion for Claudia in the original novel–will also join the cast of characters. “Her relationship with Claudia is going to be appropriately complicated in the sense that it’s an interesting relationship in the book,” O’Byrne said. “We have some great stuff that I think will heighten the Madeline character and make her particularly compelling.”
The series–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,” according to the synopsis.
