Interview with the Vampire fans assemble! AMC has released an extended new trailer for the second season and it has been heralded as a “masterpiece.”

The fan favourite blood-sucking drama stars Jacob Anderson (Game of Thrones), Sam Reid (The Newsreader), Delainey Hayles (Something In The Closet), Eric Bogsian (Succession), Assad Zaman (Hotel Portofino) and Ben Daniels (The Exorcist).

Season two will pick up after “the bloody events in New Orleans in 1940 when Louis (Anderson) and Claudia (Hayles) conspired to kill Lestat (Reid), Louis tells of his adventures in Europe, a quest to discover Old World Vampires, and the Theatre Des Vampires in Paris.

“It is in Paris that Louis first meets the Vampire Armand (Zaman). Their courtship and love affair will prove to have devastating consequences both in the past and in the future, and Molloy (Bogosian) will probe to get to the truths buried within the memories.”

The new trailer is packed with drama of the vampire variety and LGBTQIA+ lusting. In one of the first few scenes, reporter Daniel asks Louis’s lover Armand about their relationship: “Session 10. The vampire Louis, and the vampire Armand. Are you two gonna finish each other’s sentences for the whole session?”

“We’ve been together 77 years, Daniel. Let the math of that settle,” the pair respond.


The trailer continues with a mixture of scenes that show passionate make-outs, exploding buildings, a more in depth look at the Théâtre des Vampires and the notable return of Lestat.

Fans were quick to react to the cinematic triumph of the trailer. One commented: “Bravo to whoever put this trailer together. There’s A LOT without giving much of anything away. So good!”

Another added: “I’ve never felt emotion like this in my life. Truly.”

“Ohhh man the hype is off the charts,” a third said, “I’m so excited to have my heart shattered by this season.”

Interview with the Vampire is the first book in Anne Rice’s beloved Vampire Chronicles. The bestselling 1976 novel was first adapted as a feature film starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in 1994.

Anderson recently revealed more about what we can expect during an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“The theme of season 2 is this idea of memory is a monster, and how memory and guilt can follow you around,” he explained.

The star teased that Louis and his surrogate vampire daughter Claudia will be dealing with the repercussions of “murdering” Lestat.

“When we meet Claudia and Louis in season 2, they’re dealing with the psychological and literal repercussions of what they did together,” he continued.

“With Louis, you definitely get a sense there was some hesitance on his part – he didn’t really go through with it, he pulled back from the decision at the last minute, because he is very in love with this fellow monster.”

Anderson went on to say that Louis’ hesitance to kill Lestat is set to create tension with Claudia as they travel around Europe.
