Interview with the Vampire Trailer Sees Louis (and Molloy?) Remembering Monstrous Things

Memory can fool you, as Louis and Molloy are about to learn


Published on April 1, 2024

Louis and Claudia in Interview with the Vampire season 2, peeking out from behind a curtain

Memory is the monster. That’s the message, at least, from the latest trailer for the upcoming second season of Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire.

The biggest thing Louis (Jacob Anderson) doesn’t seem to recall from season one, is what the heck happened to Claudia (played in season two by Delainey Hayles) as he recounts his life to the reporter Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian) while his paramour of seventy years, Armand (Assad Zaman) sits supportively(?) by his side.

What the latest trailer also suggests, however, is that Armand is possibly manipulating Louis and the younger vampire’s attempts to recall the past. It also shows that Lestat (Sam Reid) had a continued influence on Louis beyond New Orleans, and that Molloy has some recall problems of his own when it comes to his earlier interview with Louis back when he was a young man.

Your memory can fool you! And uncovering the truth, if the background music in the latest trailer is anything to go on, can be a dangerous thing.

The trailer also treats us to more glimpses of Claudia and Louis’ time in Paris with the coven of vampire actors there. Want more context as to what we’ll see in the upcoming episodes? Here’s the official synopsis for season two of Interview with the Vampire:

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.

AMC’s Interview with the Vampire is created and showrun by Rolin Jones, who also executive produces along with Mark Johnson, Mark Taylor, Christopher Rice, and the late Anne Rice.

Season two premieres on AMC and AMC+ on May 12, 2024.
