About the Series

“Claudia (Bass) is a victim of Louis’s (Jacob Anderson) feeding frenzy after being turned into a vampire.
Already sick with the plague, the young girl is turned into a vampire by Louis’s own mentor, Lestat (Sam Reid), making her the third member of their unusual undead family. Eventually, Claudia comes to resent her two mentors for trapping her in the body of a young child for eternity, never to mature into an adult, which creates serious predicaments for both men.”

Original series plot.

The AMC acquired eighteen of Anne Rice’s novels in 2020 and chosen Rolin Jones to created and written the new series.
