AMC announced today that Anne Rice's Interview with The Vampire has been renewed for Season 2. The pickup is an early one, coming days ahead of the show's premiere this Sunday. While home viewers haven't got a chance to see it yet, critics have, and early reviews have been overwhelmingly positive.

An updated take on Anne Rice's 1976 gothic novel, the series follows Louis de Pointe du Lac, Lestat de Lioncourt, and Claudia's epic story of love, blood, and the perils of immortality as told to journalist Daniel Molloy. Frustrated with the limitations of living life as a black man in 1900s New Orleans, Louis finds it impossible to resist Lestat's offer of becoming his vampire companion. But Louis' intoxicating new powers come with a violent price, and the introduction of Lestat's newest fledgling, the child vampire Claudia, sets them on a decades-long path of revenge and atonement.
