Anne Rice’s Immortal Universe expands this weekend on AMC. Mayfair Witches, the second installment in the Immortal Universe franchise after Interview With a Vampire, premieres in just a few days, adapting Rice’s Lives of the Mayfair Witches novel trilogy. Here are all the details on how to watch Mayfair Witches, including the premiere date, time, and where to find the show.
What is ‘Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches’ about?
Mayfair Witches stars Alexandra Daddario as Dr. Rowan Fielding, a neurosurgeon who discovers that she is an heiress in a family of witches. She must learn to control her new powers while also fighting off a sinister being that has haunted her family for decades.
“You won’t be able to forget him once you meet him, trust us,” the description on AMC Talk reveals.
Mayfair Witches will run for eight episodes and air on a weekly basis. The series also stars Harry Hamlin as Cortland Mayfair, Tongayi Chirisa as Ciprien Grieve, and Jack Huston as Lasher. Other recurring roles include Annabeth Gish as Deirdre Mayfair, Beth Grant as Carlotta Mayfair, Erica Gimpel as Ellie Mayfair, and Jen Richards as Jojo. The supernatural thriller was created by Esta Spalding and Michelle Ashford.
“I think [the show] is about the relationship between good and evil, and who we are, and what a woman’s place in the world is,” Daddario told New York Post. “And how no matter what kind of power you have, are people jealous of that? Are people wanting a piece of you? Can you still be a mess and together at the same time?”
