It's an exciting time to be an Anne Rice fan, with lots of developments on Mayfair Witches season 2!


The series stars Alexandra Daddario as Rowan Fielding and follows a neurosurgeon who discovers that she is the unlikely heir to a family of witches.

The first season proved incredibly twisty and, thankfully, there's more on the way with season 2 currently in production. Plus, we have new cast members to welcome to the fold!

Here's everything we know so far about Mayfair Witches season 2

Mayfair Witches season 2 release date speculation

As an estimate, we wouldn't expect to see Mayfair Witches season 2 any earlier than late 2024.

The series was renewed for a second season very quickly - halfway through season 1 airing - so hopefully production, which has started in New Orleans, should prove fairly quick.

Considering the fact that season 1 also came to the BBC 10 months later than it aired on AMC, we could once again expect a delay for UK viewers.

Who will star in the Mayfair Witches season 2 cast?

We'd be expecting a range of the cast from season 1 to return, including:

  • Alexandra Daddario as Dr Rowan Fielding
  • Jack Huston as Lasher
  • Tongayi Chirisa as Ciprien
  • Harry Hamlin as Cortland Mayfair

Some new castings have also been announced! We're set to welcome the following stars to the show:

  • Thora Birch as Gifford Mayfair
  • Ted Levine as Julien Mayfair
  • Alyssa Jirrels as Moira Mayfair

Actors Birch and Levine will guest star in the new series, while Jirrels will be a new series regular. Gifford is described as a self-deprecated tarot reader, while Julien is the father of Cortland – and a master manipulator.

Moira, meanwhile, is Rowan's cousin and a mind-reader – and she's certainly not happy about the death of her sister, Tessa.

Of course, we're not expecting to see Beth Grant back as Carlotta after the character's death in season 1.

According to co-showrunner Esta Spalding, the second season will cover the second of Anne Rice's books.

She told Entertainment Weekly: "We've gone to the second book, and again, we have only so many episodes, [so] we're gonna mine it for the wonders, riches and strangeness that is there.

"That's kind of really the tease, more than anything. There's a whole section in the book where Rowan is in Europe and there's some stuff in Scotland and there's a bunch of generations in Scotland.

"Of course, we touched on Scotland in this season, but that has been really exciting to think about for the second season."

With the news that season 2 has gone into production, AMC also shared a tidbit, teasing: "Rowan is no longer the only key witch in the Mayfair story."

Is there a trailer for Mayfair Witches season 2?

Not yet! We'll update this as soon as we know more.
