Season 3 of Interview With the Vampire may be inspired by this Anne Rice book

Season 3 of Interview With the Vampire may be inspired by this Anne Rice book

Showrunner Rolin Jones revealed his plan for Interview with the Vampire Should season 3 receive an official order from AMC. As of now, the supernatural drama is currently airing its second installment with only two episodes remaining for this season.

What will the potential Interview with the Vampire season 3 be about?

In a recent interview, Jones confirmed that the potential season 3 of Interview With the Vampire would be inspired by Anne Rice’s 1985 novel, The Vampire Lestat. In the original novel, Lestat writes his own autobiography, after waking up to Daniel Molloy’s Interview with the Vampire as an already published book. This seemingly teased the creative team’s plan to shift the show’s story from telling Louis’ version over two seasons to exploring the story of Sam Reid’s Lestat de Lioncourt.

“There is no green light. I can’t talk about it,” Jones said (via Collider). “I can only talk about this: the next book I would do would be The Vampire Lestat. I have no idea who makes the decisions about why things are titled the way they are. I think it’s called The Vampire Lestat. That’s what I think it’s called, so that’s what I’d like to do. We are already drawing inspiration from other books. We took from The Vampire Lestat. We took from Queen of the Damned. We took some Vampire Armand. We have extracted a little or at least some seeds from The Body Thief. There’s stuff from Prince Lestat. We read them. We build these things as if they are one giant thing.

Interview With the Vampire is written and executive produced by Emmy Award nominee Rolin Jones, who also serves as showrunner. Season 2 stars Jacob Anderson as Louis de Pointe du Lac, Sam Reid as Lestat de Lioncourt, Delainey Hayles as Claudia, Ben Daniels as Santiago, Eric Bogosian as Daniel Molloy, Assad Zaman as Armand, and more. It is produced by Mark Johnson and Christopher Rice.
