It looks like the vampires will soon be taking over the network known for its zombies. AMC has just acquired the rights to produce projects based on Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles which means the Lestat TV series could soon be coming your way.

AMC Networks announced that it has signed an agreement with Rice to develop new projects based on the author's literary works. This includes The Vampire Chronicles as well as The Lives of the Mayfair Witches. Rice and her son Christopher Rice will serve as executive producers on the yet-unannounced projects. They will be working with Rolin Jones, who has previously signed an overall development deal with AMC Studios.

Rice expressed her excitement over the deal in a statement.

"It's always been my dream to see the worlds of my two biggest series united under a single roof so that filmmakers could explore the expansive and interconnected universe of my vampires and witches. That dream is now a reality, and the result is one of the most significant and thrilling deals of my long career," she said.


Although the new projects have not yet been confirmed, there is a huge chance that one of the first things that will be announced in the TV series that will follow the life of the vampire Lestat Rice had previously been developing. For now, AMC has not yet made an official statement about this but stay tuned for more updates on this story.
