The teaser of the television series has been released Interview with the VampireAMC’s television adaptation of Anne Rice’s 1976 novel of the same name.

This is a disturbing teaser trailer featuring the voice of Louis de Pointe du Lac. The new video offered as a taster simply consists of a still shot of an old cassette player. One hand presses the play button and sets the tone for the audio.
You feel part of an interview in which an interviewer asks questions to the interviewee (forgive the repetitions but in the case of Interview with the Vampire you can’t do without it, since that interview is the fulcrum of everything). The subject in question is presumably the protagonist Louis de Pointe du Lac. They ask him if he has always been a vampire or if he has had a human past.

At that point a melancholy voice replies: he says he was a 33-year-old man when he was transformed into the monster he is today. A few seconds and this trailer cuts, showing the logo of the upcoming series.
This latest teaser confirms that fan predictions were spot on: the show will debut in the fall of 2022.

You can watch the teaser trailer of the television series Interview with the Vampire in the video you find at the head of this article.

Interview with the Vampire, Jacob Anderson of Game of Thrones will be Louis

Originally written in 1976, the novel Interview with the Vampire (Interview with the Vampire in Italian) focuses on the character of Louis de Pointe du Lac, a 200-year-old vampire. The book (as well as the movie and probably this series) tells the story of Louis’ incredible life, offered to an unnamed interviewer.

Rice’s novel has earned the title of a modern classic. It boasts almost universally positive reviews and has managed to convince both critics and audiences.
The author, Anne Rice, was involved in the production of the AMC television series (along with her son Christopher) but sadly died in December 2021, before the project was completed.
She passed away at the age of 80 due to complications from a stroke, her son announced on the writer’s Facebook page. Christopher Rice is still one of the producers on the project.

Below we show you the post with which the official Twitter account of the series presented this new teaser (the second, so far).
