Mayfair Witches Season 2: When will the new season premiere?
According to recent reports, the production of the second season is all set to begin later this year in New Orleans. There is clearly a lot of time left, as the series is still in its pre-production stage, which takes time to approve before the star cast and film crew hit the ground. If we have to speculate, the second season will be released sometime around 2024.
The likely release window will be around January if it follows the same footsteps which are also expected to have the same time slot, with new episodes premiering every Sunday night at 9 p.m. ET on AMC and three days early on AMC+.

The television series was created by Esta Spalding and Michelle Ashford and based on Anne Rice’s novel trilogy, “Lives of the Mayfair Witches.” It is an exploration of female power and the mortal implications of our decisions. Mayfair Witches also focuses on an intuitive young neurosurgeon (Alexandra Daddario) who discovers that she is the unlikely heir to a family of witches. As she grapples with her newfound powers, she must contend with a sinister presence that has haunted her family for generations.
The new season is expected to continue the plot from the finale episode, “What Rough Beast.” The episode is directed by Alexis Ostrander and written by Esta Spalding. The viewers got to see that Rowan inadvertently discovers her role in a prophecy that’s held the Mayfair family for generations, and Sip’s investigation reaches its conclusion, uncovering secrets that could tarnish both Rowan’s family and his role in the Talamasca.
The main cast members who are expected to reprise their roles include Emmy-nominated lead Alexandra Daddario; Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches also stars Jack Huston as Lasher, Tongayi Chirisa as Ciprien Grieve, and Harry Hamlin as Cortland Mayfair. The series is executive produced by Mark Johnson, Showrunner Esta Spalding, Writer Michelle Ashford, Director Michael Uppendahl, and Jeff Freilich, and is produced by AMC Studios.
“The success of both Mayfair Witches and Interview with the Vampire once again illustrates the strength and mastery of Anne Rice’s work,” said Mark Johnson, who is overseeing the entire Anne Rice universe for AMC Networks. “The fact that these first two shows are performing so splendidly with a TV audience gives us much pride in what we’ve already done and great anticipation for the storytelling opportunities yet to come.”
