AMC eyes Talamasca series expansion to its Anne Rice Immortal Universe

Anne Rice’s Interview With The Vampire

AMC Networks is in development on a potential third series in its expanding Anne Rice Immortal Universe.

The series would be set in the world of the Talamasca, a secretive organization featured in a number of Rice’s novels that is devoted to studying the supernatural world and keeping mortals safe from its darkest elements.

The show would sit alongside existing AMC and AMC+ series Anne Rice’s Interview With The Vampire and Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches, with John Lee Hancock attached as showrunner and writer.

In 2020, AMC Networks acquired the rights to an expansive collection of Rice’s works, encompassing 18 titles, including The Vampire Chronicles and The Lives Of The Mayfair Witches series. Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul) oversees development for the full Anne Rice collection.

“The enthusiastic critical and fan reception to Interview and Mayfair is a great sign of what is yet to come in this immersive universe based on the works of Anne Rice,” said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks.

“We’re excited to be in active development of the next installment in this growing franchise, written and to be showrun by the incomparable John Lee Hancock. The Talamasca is one of the most intriguing elements of Rice’s works and a connective thread through so many of her stories, the standalone and crossover potential for this third series is immense.”
