AMC’s Interview with the Vampire Season 2 is on its way to viewers, and with an all-new trailer dropping last night, LGBTQ+ fans of the series are more ravenous than ever for its bloody arrival.  Whether you’re a fan of Anne Rice’s 1976 novel, the 1994 film starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, or the AMC series that debuted in 2022, the trailer for Interview with the Vampire Season 2 is a must-watch, with the season being called a “masterpiece”. 

The horror-drama series stars a host of actors, including Game of Thrones’ Jacob Anderson as Louis de Pointe du Lac, The Newsreader’s Sam Reid as Lestat de Lioncourt, and Holby City’s Delainey Hayles as Claudia – though the latter role was portrayed by Bailey Bass in Season 1. 

According to the synopsis provided by AMC, Interview with the Vampire season two will pick up after “the bloody events in New Orleans in 1940 when Louis (Anderson) and Claudia (Hayles) conspired to kill Lestat (Reid).”

“Louis tells of his adventures in Europe, a quest to discover Old World Vampires, and the Theatre Des Vampires in Paris,” the synopsis continues.

“It is in Paris that Louis first meets the Vampire Armand (Assad Zaman). Their courtship and love affair will prove to have devastating consequences both in the past and in the future, and Molloy (Eric Bogosian) will probe to get to the truths buried within the memories.”

In addition to featuring its fair share of LGBTQ+ lust, the newly-released trailer for Interview with the Vampire Season 2 is similarly packed with drama. 

In one clip shown in the trailer, Zaman’s Armand can be seen discussing his relationship with Anderson’s Louis with a reporter named Daniel. “Session 10. The vampire Louis, and the vampire Armand. Are you two gonna finish each other’s sentences for the whole session?” asks Daniel. 

“We’ve been together 77 years, Daniel. Let the math of that settle,” Louis and Armand reply. 

Between the trailer’s passionate make-out scenes and over the top explosions, fans are more excited than ever for the return of Interview with the Vampire and the long-awaited return of Reid’s Lestat.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Anderson revealed that “the theme of season 2 is this idea of memory as a monster, and how memory and guilt can follow you around.” 

In season two, Anderson revealed, his character Louis and his surrogate vampire daughter Claudia will deal with the aftermath of their attempt to “murder” Lestat.

“When we meet Claudia and Louis in season 2, they’re dealing with the psychological and literal repercussions of what they did together,” Anderson continued. 

“With Louis, you definitely get a sense there was some hesitance on his part – he didn’t really go through with it, he pulled back from the decision at the last minute, because he is very in love with his fellow monster.”
