The Interview with a vampire The show was in development hell for a while, as Rice’s rights to The Vampire Chronicles were passed on. AMC acquired the rights to Rice’s most famous work in 2020, and announced plans to adapt her books by season, starting with Interview with a vampire. (Rice herself died in 2021.)
The first season is set to follow the novel of the same name, focusing on Louis de Points du Lac (Jacob Anderson, who played Gray Worm on the Game of thrones) tells the story of his 200-year life of journalist Daniel Malloy (Eric Bogosian, whom you may know from a million different places including SuccessionAnd the Uncut GemstonesAnd the triple blade).
