Based on the early reactions to AMC's Anne Rice's Interview with the Vampire, the Anne Rice "universe" is off to a pretty strong start. And on January 5th, AMC+ will premiere the next foundation with Anne Rice's Mayfair Witches. With the first two episodes set to kick things off at the start of the new year (with subsequent episodes dropping weekly), the news came during the show's New York Comic Con panel. But executive producers Mark Johnson, Esta Spalding (also showrunner) & Michelle Ashford, and cast members Alexandra Daddario, Jack Huston, Tongayi Chirisa & Harry Hamlin has something even better to offer. Yup, that's right! We have an official trailer that not only confirmed the premiere date but also offer a much better sense of what fans of the novels can expect.
