AMC has several shows scheduled for release in 2022, including two from the world of Anne Rice. Anne Rice Mayfair Witches, one of the planned series, will be based on Rice’s book The Witching Hour and will examine the link between the Mayfair and the shapeshifters.
Rice is renowned among her fan readers for writing gothic horror novels tinged with romance, and we’re all for it. Unanswered is whether AMC will be able to keep the same tone with which she writes her book in the forthcoming adaptation.
