‘Interview With A Vampire’ & ‘Mayfair Witches’ Crossover Planned At AMC

The Anne Rice Cinematic Universe is in full swing at AMC with Interview with a Vampire and Mayfair Witches.

Now, there are plans to plot a crossover with the two series.

Mark Johnson, exec producer of both shows, speaking at AMC’s TCA press tour, said there are “ongoing conversations” over a crossover. “You’ll see a lot of connections, both in terms of characters in terms of geography… I guess almost like Easter eggs. We very much want to tie the worlds together in a way that makes sense. Of course, they’re completely separate on the one hand, but thematically and in terms of how Anne Rice deals with character, we want to find a way to have that flow throughout the various shows.”
