AMC has extended The Mayfair Witches by Anne Rice for Season 2, just a month after the show’s record premiere on AMC+. Mayfair Witches continues to showcase the impressive performance of the ‘Anne Rice Universe’ on AMC, with the reimagined Interview with a vampire being the previous top performer on AMC+. Fans of Mayfair Witches should breathe a sigh of relief as AMC has recently canceled numerous TV series and cut large chunks of staff. With the flagship series of the networks The living Dead also recently ended, AMC is trying to hold on to all the successful franchise content blocks it can.
“What a start to our Anne Rice Immortal Universe, with two series that spark cultural conversation, attract significant linear audiences, and now stand as the top two new series in AMC+ history,” Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks, said earlier. “We are grateful for the way fans have responded to these shows and for the creative teams who have delivered on the promise of these stories and characters in new and very compelling ways. Thanks to… the entire cast of ‘Mayfair’, led by the remarkable Alexandra Daddario, for delivering an entertaining and highly watchable series and firmly placing another key foundational element of this dynamic universe.”
The Mayfair Witches by Anne Rice stars Alexandra Daddario as Rowan Fielding, along with Harry Hamlin as Cortland Mayfair, Jack Huston as Lasher, Tongayi Chirisa as Ciprien Grieve, Annabeth Gish as Diedre, Beth Grant as Carlotta, Erica Gimpel as Ellie, and Jen Richards as Jojo. Esta Spalding serves as showrunner and executive producer alongside Mark Johnson, Michelle Ashford, Michael Uppendahl and Jeff Freilich.
The TV series is “based on Anne Rice’s Lives of the Mayfair Witches, Mayfair Witches is an exploration of female power and the deadly implications of our decisions. The show focuses on an intuitive young neurosurgeon (Alexandra Daddario) who discovers that she is the unlikely heiress of a family of witches. As she struggles with her newfound powers, she must confront a sinister presence that has haunted her family for generations.”
AMC announced that there will be a crossover event between Interview with a vampire and Mayfair Witches Is in the making.
The Mayfair Witches by Anne Rice airs Sundays at 9:00 PM ET on AMC and AMC+.
