Anne Rice’s Interview with a Vampire was a huge hit for AMC. The series, inspired by Rice’s novel of the same name, recently wrapped up its first season with the reveal of vampire Armando as the story prepares to jump to Europe in the already announced second season, meaning fans have plenty more to look forward to. But with the first season and the upcoming second season following the two halves of the novel, what happens after the story is told has some fans wondering what’s next for Louis and Lestat and it looks like there’s a plan going forward Interview. According to producer Adam O’Byrne, showrunner Rolin Jones is already planning a third season of the show, one that will take Lestat’s perspective on things.
“In the third season that Rolin has in his head, I think there will be some kind of Lestat’s perspective, let’s put it that way,” O’Byrne said. Canadian press (over it Toronto Star). “Whether it’s sitting down for an interview or some other way to show the world through his eyes.”
Fans of Rice’s novels know that, as far as books go, the second novel in the The Vampire Chronicles it’s a series Vampire Lestat which is very much Lestat’s story from his own perspective—including his take on Louis’s story from Interview with a vampire. In that book, Interview was published as a real-world novel, prompting Lestat to tell his own story after revealing himself to people as a vampire, though they think he’s joking. Given that the AMC series made some major changes to Rice’s first novel, they probably would have done the same Vampire Lestat for future seasons, especially in terms of Louis’ presence, something O’Byrne addressed.
“The way we envisioned the show from a racial diversity perspective is something that will continue to be a priority for us,” he said. “Part of that would be trying to keep Louis involved outside of the way he just dips in and out of the canon [after] the first book.”

“We’re going to Europe, and the second part of the novel is the first episode of the second season. So we’re going there and we’re going to experience it. Then we’re going to Paris.
