Season 2 had been confirmed before the first season even premiered, but it is still in development. Filming is set to begin April 2023 and finish in August, making it difficult to predict when the series will drop, but it likely won’t be until late 2023/early 2024 at least.

Deadline confirmed this filming news, adding that production will be happening in Prague, along with shoots in Paris and New Orleans.

  • Jacob Anderson as Louis de Pointe du Lac
  • Sam Reid as Lestat de Lioncourt
  • Delainey Hayles as Claudia
  • Eric Bogosian as Daniel Molloy

Santiago, a new character for the second season, is part of the Theatre des Vampires in Paris and potentially one of the antagonists for Season 2.

One significant change in the casting is the role of Claudia, as Bailey Bass – who played her in Season 1 – will not be returning. Delainey Hayles will be replacing her.

Deadline confirmed the news, and AMC said in a statement: “Bailey Bass is a talented actor who did a remarkable job bringing the character of Claudia to life in Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire. For a variety of reasons, Delainey Hayles will appear as Claudia in Season 2 We are grateful for Bailey’s unforgettable performance in Season 1 and wish her nothing but the best.”

Bass also spoke on the situation, stating: “Due to a variety of unforeseen circumstances I’m unable to return to Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire for the second season. Playing Claudia has been a dream role and an incredible ride. I wish Delainey the best of luck in taking over. I cannot wait to watch. I’m extremely appreciative of AMC, the producers, Jacob, Sam, the crew and, of course, the wonderful fans.”

Interview with the Vampire Season 2 plot: What will happen next season?

The series so far has followed the vampire Louis as he recounted his life to an ageing journalist Daniel Molloy. Louis was turned into a vampire in the early 1900s by Lestat, and the two have had a very toxic relationship in the century since, which is only made more tricky when they also turn a young girl, Claudia, and bring her into their family.

At the end of Season 1, it is revealed that Louis is now with another vampire, Armand, though this relationship doesn’t seem any healthier. We were also shown that Louis and Claudia are now moving to Europe in an attempt to meet more vampires, after supposedly killing Lestat. But Lestat isn’t dead, since Louis didn’t actually want it that way. So wherever Louis and Claudia go, Lestat is sure to be close behind.
