AMC+ Witches and Zombie News

AMC+ will stream Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches from January 5.

The second series in the Anne Rice Immortal Universe, it stars Alexandra Daddario, Jack Huston, Tongayi Chirisa and Harry Hamlin.

It will launch with a double-episode, with new episodes weekly thereafter.

Based on Rice’s best-selling trilogy, Lives of the Mayfair Witches, the eight-episode series focuses on an intuitive young neurosurgeon (Daddario) who discovers that she is the unlikely heir to a family of witches. As she grapples with her newfound powers, she must contend with a sinister presence that has haunted her family for generations.

New episodes of the first series in the Anne Rice Immortal Universe, Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire, can be streamed weekly on AMC+.

The Hollywood Reporter called it a “handsomely mounted small-screen iteration that aims to please fans while also attracting new viewers” while Variety said the show “forges a powerful story of identity that will be both familiar to any Rice fan and feel much different than versions that came before.”

The AMC Studios series is executive produced by Mark Johnson (Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul), showrunner Esta Spalding (Masters of Sex) and writer Michelle Ashford (Masters of Sex).

AMC+ also has released first-look photos for its new six-part series The Walking Dead: Dead City, which will premiere in April.

Starring Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, it follows the Maggie and Negan characters traveling into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan, long ago cut off from the mainland. The crumbling city is filled with the dead and denizens who have made New York City their own world full of anarchy, danger, beauty, and terror.

Eli Jorné, who has been a writer and co-executive producer on The Walking Dead for multiple seasons and has an overall deal with AMC Studios, serves as showrunner and executive producer on the series, which is overseen by Scott M. Gimple, chief content officer of The Walking Dead Universe.
