At San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, AMC released the very first trailer for Interview With a Vampire. Based on Anne Rice’s novel, the series stars Game of Thrones star Jacob Anderson. The novel was famously adapted for film in 1994 starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.
Alongside Anderson, the AMC series also stars Sam Reid, Bailey Bass and Eric Bogosian.
Here’s the official description:
Based on Anne Rice’s revolutionary gothic novel, Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire follows Louis de Pointe du Lac (Jacob Anderson), Lestat de Lioncourt (Sam Reid) and Claudia’s (Bailey Bass) epic story of love, blood, and the perils of immortality, as told to journalist Daniel Molloy (Eric Bogosian). Chafing at the limitations of life as a black man in 1900s New Orleans, Louis finds it impossible to resist the rakish Lestat’s offer of the ultimate escape: joining him as his vampire companion. But Louis’s intoxicating new powers come with a violent price, and the introduction of Lestat’s newest fledgling, the child vampire Claudia, soon sets them on a decades-long path of revenge and atonement.

The series premieres Oct. 2.
