These days when a good show’s season ends, we all hold our breath as series get canceled left and right. Well, we’ve got good news for fans of one series. AMC just announced via Twitter that it has renewed “Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches,” which is part of the evolving Anne Rice Universe.
.”Mayfair Witches” premiered in January and is the second series of the Anne Rice Universe to be renewed recently, with “Interview with the Vampire” also getting a second season.
“The success of both Mayfair Witches and Interview with the Vampire once again illustrates the strength and mastery of Anne Rice’s work,” said AMC’s Mark Johnson. “The fact that these first two shows are performing so splendidly with a TV audience gives us much pride in what we’ve already done and great anticipation for the storytelling opportunities yet to come.”
Alexandra Daddario, Jack Huston, Harry Hamlin, and Annabeth Gish star in the series about a neurosurgeon who discovers she is the unlikely heir to a family of witches. She must contend with a sinister presence that has haunted her family for generations.
“Master of Sex” duo Esta Spalding and Michelle Ashford executive produce and serve as writers of the series. Spalding, who has an overall deal with AMC Studios, is the showrunner.
