AMC has revealed a full trailer for its series adaptation of Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches. It was also reported that the series will air on January 5th, 2023, on AMC+.
Mayfair Witches stars Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson, True Detective) as Dr. Rowan Fielding, “an intuitive young neurosurgeon 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.”
The series is stated to be an “exploration of female power and the mortal implications of our decisions.” It’s the second show being released in what AMC is calling the “Immortal Universe,” which also includes Interview With the Vampire. I’m actually more excited about Mayfair Witches than I am about Interview with a Vampire. It looks like a great supernatural series!
Mayfair Witches also stars Harry Hamlin (Mad Men) as Cortland Mayfair, the current reigning patriarch of the Mayfair family with a voracious hunger for more money, more power, and more life; and Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) as Lasher, a powerful, shape-shifting entity who has been bound to the Mayfair witches for hundreds of years. They are joined by Annabeth Gish (Midnight Mass) as Diedre, Beth Grant (Dollface) as Carlotta, Erica Gimpel (God Friended Me) as Ellie, Jen Richards (Clarice) as Jojo, and Tongayi Chirisa (iZombie) as Citroen.
