Despite strong critical acclaim, the first season of AMC's Interview With the Vampire flew under the radar somewhat. Even so, the series enticed enough viewers to warrant a second season, and is set to return to our screens this May.

Following some brief teaser promos, we finally have a full trailer featuring some stunning new footage.

This moving, operatic preview spotlights the relationship between Louis and Armand, as they both take part in the ongoing interview with Daniel Molloy. We then flash back to the writer's first conversation with Louis, which didn't end so well (if you've read Anne Rice's novel, you'll know what occurred).

The trailer also includes shots of Claudia raging against her creator, the sinister Santiago and the Théâtre Des Vampires, and the returning Lestat, who is very much alive (well, undead) after the grisly events of the season 1 finale.

After she stole every scene in the first season, fans were disappointed to learn that Bailey Bass would not be reprising the role of Claudia for season 2, with Delainey Hayles stepping in to take over as the ruthless child vampire.

"Delainey is extraordinary. She is a beautiful actress, and I think what she's brought to Claudia is exceptional," Lestat actor Sam Reid said of his new co-star during a recent interview. "It's different and it's a change, but it's also, it's such a beloved character and I think Delainey really makes it her own. I can't wait for people to see her in this role."

Check out the extended trailer below, along with a new synopsis.

"The interview continues in season two. In the year 2022, the vampire Louis de Pointe du Lac (Anderson) recounts his life story to journalist Daniel Molloy (Bogosian). Picking up from the bloody events in New Orleans in 1940 when Louis and teen fledgling Claudia (Hayles) conspired to kill the Vampire Lestat de Lioncourt (Reid), Louis tells of his adventures in Europe, a quest to discover Old World Vampires and the Theatre Des Vampires in Paris, with Claudia. It is in Paris that Louis first meets the Vampire Armand (Zaman). Their courtship and love affair will prove to have devastating consequences both in the past and in the future, and Molloy will probe to get to the truths buried within the memories."

Season two of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire is executive produced by award-winning producer Mark Johnson, creator and showrunner Rolin Jones, Mark Taylor, along with Christopher Rice and the late Anne Rice.

One of the best shows on tv that flys under the radar. I just caught up and finished season 1

@GhostDog - could definitely say it flies under the radar, because I had no idea S1 even existed

@GhostDog - I was about to ask if this show was worth investing in, but I'll definitely trust your opinion and give it a shot.

@lazlodaytona - its really good. Me and my girl binged half of season 1 in a night. We were HOOKED.

@bkmeijer1 - the marketing for it isn't the best, sadly

@GhostDog - marketing doing it no favours makes sense where I live. I just checked, and it's available nowhere. I'll keep it in mind though

@bkmeijer1 - That's because most here do what they normally do when something comes out here...they hate on it, "occasionally" spouting on about forced diversity and wokeness.

Not attacking you, but why do something you don't like?

@lazlodaytona

Lol I’m coming to the site less and less, commenting less. There’s next to know intelligent discussions of film/tv, the editors are extremely slow of news, and 60% of the users here bitch and complain about the most minute things.

Been coming to the site for probably 10+ years and now and it’s a shell of its former self.

The site sucks. And has sucked for a long time.

@regularmovieguy - I definitely understand your perspective and agree on a lot of things you pointed out which can completely be frustrating.

I personally hope you stick around for the parts you like.

You can also leave anytime.
Why stay on a site that you feel "sucks"?

Appreciate it, man. I’m sure I’ll always be lurking even if I don’t comment as much. The worst part about leaving would be losing the boys I do enjoy engaging with. 🤜🏻

@regularmovieguy - I get where you're coming from. I've been on this site for over a decade as well, and it has changed quite a bit.

Think it's also a result of CBMs really having taking centre stage in pop culture, so the fandom and thus the number of users on this site has grown enormously. And with a much wider audience, it kinda needs to appease everybody.

Got no explanation for the complaining though. Maybe I'll throw it on social media ruining everything for everybody.

Wow! I think this show is lousy. Not much debate going on about the show which this article is about.

Most of these comments have little or nothing to do about the show.

The only thing I wrote was something to the effect that it Visually looks good and I might check it out.

This show is both beautifully crafted and acted, no idea why there's so much hate. Generally, with few exceptions, Vampire lore on film/TV is either juvenile or one dimensional. So far, this has delivered something fresh and the trailer for season 2 looks even better.

@TheVandalore - The author has the ability to turn comments on and off at any time. It's something that *they* get to decide. *Not* the site, *not* the users.
TheVandalore
TheVandalore - 3/20/2024, 12:26 PM
@NateBest - okay. Understood. It's the authors decision.

But the author also gets a monopoly on that post, correct ? I mean, no other author who wants a comment section about that same topic is allowed to post a duplicate article to give people a comment section to discuss the post and drive more traffic to your site, right?

I'm simply looking at this from the perspective of a daily user who comes here at multiple times through out each day to stay current. I'm here daily and honest feel turning off comments is a huge step backwards. We have a block button to silence people who bug us... Why do you guys feel the need to eliminate comments at all? That's literally why we've used your site for decades. If I can't engage with the content, this isn't CBM.com, you know?
NateBest
NateBest - 3/20/2024, 1:24 PM
@TheVandalore - For what it's worth, I agree. I think turning comments off for a post is a bad idea in general as it creates less interaction with, and between, users.

For whatever reason, users refuse to use the "block" feature... They say that it's because they want to take the high road and let everyone voice their opinions, but I think they like to get worked up. People can say and share what they want, but that doesn't mean that others have to listen to it, or clog up their feeds...

The comment section is what has made CBM great for so long (the interaction between the community). Granted, the web has turned pretty negative over the last 10 years, but I still see it as one of CBM's strengths.

With all of that being said, see my discussion with @bkmeijer1 below. I think that bringing back one of the old features could work out really well!
TheVandalore
TheVandalore - 3/20/2024, 1:35 PM
@NateBest - as always, I really appreciate your feedback and interaction. And your tolerance for when users like myself get too worked up over the site. I feel like this is my home in a way, I always find myself coming back through all of the changes. I look forward to seeing what you have in store for us. Cheers, and thanks for your time, brother.

@bkmeijer1 - I think you're right. It might be time to bring the forums back.

@HammerLegFoot - Fan Fic is still on the site, it never went away! There were big issues with the site chat and users posting porn and spam... I doubt it'll be back without some major changes to address those two issues (which I'm not sure how I would handle, other than 24/7 monitoring)...
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 3/20/2024, 12:35 PM
@NateBest - I'm gonna do a dance, because that's good news. And makes sense the chat won't return, although I believe there is a discord.

What about the voting board though? I vaguely remember that being a thing too, although I wasn't a user way back when
HammerLegFoot
HammerLegFoot - 3/20/2024, 12:51 PM
@NateBest - My bad, I finally found it. I kept overlooking it in the drop box.
NateBest
NateBest - 3/20/2024, 1:25 PM
@bkmeijer1 - Are you referring to the polls and voting? The feature is still there, but I turned it off because it didn't really get used... That's probably something I should throw into the feature review bin as well :o)
NateBest
NateBest - 3/20/2024, 2:20 PM
@bkmeijer1 - Yes, there is a Discord! There's not a lot of action going on there, but it's there.

It's linked along with the other social buttons, but here's the direct link if you need it - https://discord.gg/bNSBWHwtUW
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 3/20/2024, 3:31 PM
@NateBest - don't think I mean that. It was something from '09 I believe. Didn't use it or anything, just knew there was some feature. Remember it so badly though, that my explanation does it no favors.

But yeah, thanks for the link. Knew it was somewhere, and it being with the other social media links makes sense.
