With just three episodes left of Interview with the Vampire season 2, fans are getting antsy about the show's renewal chances, especially since ratings aren't necessarily fantastic. But it's worth mentioning that ratings are down pretty across the board, especially when you factor in cable, and Interview with the Vampire is one of AMC+'s biggest in terms of viewership and acquisition outside of its Walking Dead franchise, reports The Wrap.

Still, it's easy to see why people are clamoring for more of this excellent series. Each week has been delivering show-stopping performances from stars like Jacob Anderson, Sam Reid, and Delainey Hayles. Season 2 is all-around fantastic television. It's a shame more people aren't watching it.

But, hopefully, if the series returns for a third season, that will change. And now it sounds like there is a good chance that will happen because AMC just extended its overall multi-year deal with Interview with the Vampire showrunner Rolin Jones.

Per Deadline, Dan McDermott, the president of entertainment AMC Studios, and executive vice president of scripted programming Ben Davis released a joint statement on the deal.

“We’re thrilled to extend our exclusive multi-year overall deal with Rolin Jones, who is one of the most talented writers and showrunners working anywhere in scripted entertainment. We couldn’t be more excited about all that is to come through this extended AMC Studios partnership with this extraordinary creative talent.”

Earlier this week, AMC also officially ordered a third series set in its Anne Rice Universe, this one centering on the secretive society known as the Talamasca. Mayfair Witches will also return for its second season early in 2025. These are positive signs that AMC wants to continue to grow the ARU and isn't looking to cancel anything just yet.

The network is clearly no stranger to these kinds of extensive television platforms. The Walking Dead ran for 11 seasons and 177 episodes, spawning six different spinoff series. So it seems like these Anne Rice shows are ripe for continuation, although it'll be interesting to see if they continue developing content beyond the source material.
