We’re getting closer, Vampire Chronicle fans! Author Anne Rice announced on her Facebook page her newest developments on the project. The show is being optioned by Paramount Television and Anonymous Content. Together with her son, Christopher Rice, they’ve been working on bringing the show to television. And with this announcement, we know the show is under development.

President of Paramount TV, Amy Powell, talked of her excitement on the project. “It is undeniable that Anne Rice has created the paradigm in which all vampire stories are measured against. The rich and vast world she has created with The Vampire Chronicles is unmatched and sophisticated with 90’s gothic undertones that will be perfectly suited to captivate audiences. The series is full of compelling characters led by Lestat, arguably one of the greatest original characters, literary or otherwise. We are thrilled to collaborate with Anne, Christopher and the team at Anonymous Content on this epic series.”

Rice also enthused with her excitement. “I’m thrilled beyond words to be working with Paramount TV and Anonymous Content – known for extraordinary cutting edge series such as True Detective, Quarry, and The Knick. In this unique golden age of television, I couldn’t ask for a finer or more passionate team to help bring my beloved vampire hero, Lestat, alive in a series of the highest quality. This is a dream come true, both for me and for Christopher and for the fans who have been asking to see the Brat Prince in this medium for years.”

Anonymous Content has been releasing shows, most notably Netflix series 13 Reasons Why and Mr RobotNo casting news has been announced but Rice has been asking for suggestions from fans. So we can only believe that the show will be underway quickly and we’ll have more news! Here’s hoping we also have great writing attached to the project as well.
