The TV series follows the vampire Louis de Pointe du Lac intent on telling his story to a journalist. During the narrative, the latter focuses on how he became a "blood drinker" and on the role of mentor to Lestat de Lioncourt. Interview with the Vampire stars Sam Reid as Lestat de Lioncourt, Jacob Anderson as Louis de Pointe du Lac, Bailey Bass as Claudia, and Eric Bogosian as Daniel Molloy. As for the secondary characters, Kalyne Coleman will play Grace, Christian Robinson will play Levi, Assad Zaman will play the role of Rashid and Maura Grace Athari will play the role of Antoinette.

In 1973, a grieving mother and an amazing writer began what would become the best vampire novel ever written (with all due respect to Mr. Stoker). Almost 50 years later, we know what fans expect from us. We know how much this book and those that followed mean to the fandom. We can't wait to reunite Louis and Lestat with you.

Below you can see the first trailer of Interview with the Vampire:

Series executive producer Mark Johnson also said his on the television adaptation in the past, stating that "the development of this series comes with a lot of pressure and responsibility".

It is a must not to disappoint Anna Rice fans, but we must make sure that this story, these characters are suitable for a modern audience. We hope this series forces Anne Rice fans to rediscover her works. We also hope that those viewers who have never read an Anne Rice novel rush to the bookstore eager to understand what it is.
