AMC announces the renewal of their record-breaking series Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches for season 2. Production for the upcoming season will begin later this year in New Orleans.
Mayfair Witches is the second installment of Anne Rice Immortal Universe on AMC and AMC+. It had its AMC debut last month to great ratings, dethroning Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire as the top new series debut in AMC+ history. Mayfair Witches is delivering the most-watched season of any series ever on AMC+, surpassing Interview and The Walking Dead’s last season, based on the first 30 days of viewership. The series’ AMC+ audience has increased each week, reaching a season-to-date high with the most recent fourth episode. Mayfair Witches is now in the top 10 cable dramas in linear ratings among adults 18-49, adults 25-54, and total viewers for the 2022–2023 season.

“We are thrilled with the reaction to this series, especially in the wake of the incredibly strong reception to Interview, and can’t wait to bring the fans second seasons of both series in this rich, vibrant, and expanding universe based on the works of Anne Rice,” said Dan McDermott, president of entertainment and AMC Studios for AMC Networks.
“In a business in which ‘nobody knows anything,’ we knew what we were hoping for in terms of building a television franchise around these remarkable characters and stories, and to see these shows arrive and captivate viewers in the way they have is so gratifying and energizing for everyone involved, and there is so much yet to come,” he added.
“The success of both Mayfair Witches and Interview with the Vampire once again illustrates the strength and mastery of Anne Rice’s work. The fact that these first two shows are performing so splendidly with a TV audience gives us much pride in what we’ve already done and great anticipation for the storytelling opportunities yet to come,” said Mark Johnson.
“Anne Rice’s ‘Lives of the Mayfair Witches’ is a sumptuous epic tale that we’ve only begun to explore. I’m so grateful to the fans and viewers of the show who’ve given us the chance to continue telling this story,” said Esta Spalding, showrunner and executive producer of Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches.
