AMC's new Interview With the Vampire series premiered over the weekend (and it's terrific, by the way), and the network has now debuted the first footage from another small-screen adaptation of the late Anne Rice's works, The Lives of the Mayfair Witches.

It's not much, but the brief promo does give us a look at protagonist Rowan Mayfair (Alexandra Daddario) as she cautiously enters a mysterious house where the names of her fellow witches are being chanted during some kind of séance.

The show will also star Tongayi Chirisa as Ciprien Grieve, Harry Hamlin as Cortland Mayfair, and Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire, The Irishman) as the demonic entity known as Lasher, a powerful shape-shifter who has been bound to the Mayfair witches for hundreds of years.

“The series will focus on an intuitive young neurosurgeon 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.”

Esta Spalding (Masters of Sex, On Becoming a God in Central Florida) and Michelle Ashford (Masters of Sex, The Pacific, John Adams) are both executive producing and writing of the series, while Spalding is also on board as showrunner. 

No official premiere date has been announced, but Mayfair Witches is expected to hit our screens early next year.
