Anne Rice horror series, starring Alexandra Daddario, gets local air date

“Witches” is the second endeavor in AMC Networks’ Anne Rice Immortal Universe


The new hit series ”Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches” is set for a two-episode premiere in Australia on AMC+ on Sunday 2 April, with two new episodes premiering every Sunday through April 23, the network tells us today.

Based on Rice’s best-selling trilogy, “Lives of the Mayfair Witches,” the eight-episode series focuses on an intuitive young neurosurgeon, Rowan Fielding (Alexandra Daddario, ”The White Lotus”), 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. In addition, the documentary All of Them Witches, exploring the history of witches with in-depth interviews from experts, will premiere that same day as a companion special to the series.

“Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches” is the second endeavor in AMC Networks’ Anne Rice Immortal Universe, debuting on the heels of ”Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire”, which broke all viewing and acquisition records when it debuted on AMC+ last fall. ”Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches” debuted in the U.S. earlier this year where it ranks as a top 10 cable drama for the broadcast season to-date in all key demos and surpassed Interview with the Vampire as the biggest new series launch on streaming.

In addition to Emmy-nominated lead Daddario, ”Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches” stars Jack Huston as Lasher, Tongayi Chirisa as Ciprien Grieve and Harry Hamlin as Cortland Mayfair. The series is executive produced by Mark Johnson, showrunner Esta Spalding, writer Michelle Ashford, director Michael Uppendahl, and Jeff Freilich, and is produced by AMC Studios.
