Watch Mayfair Witches Season 1 Trailer

The recently released official trailer for Mayfair Witches is likely to remind you of Interview with the Vampire but without any of the bloodsucking undead. It’s more likely that the dark, gothic tone and the suspenseful plot are shared by both stories. Based on the preview, it appears that Rice’s perspective on witches will be similar to that of her other stories, with the protagonist being a naive newcomer who must learn about the Mayfair dynasty in order to uncover her own true identity.

The trailer also hints that this fantasy story will be a cut above the norm by showcasing visually stunning and slightly trippy camerawork. It’s like being transported into a video game. Beyond the fantastical backdrops, viewers can expect to learn about witchcraft’s mysterious roots through examinations of magic, mythology, secret societies and more. The clip below is a promotional video that emphasizes Rowan as “the key.”

Grieve is not a direct adaptation from the novels; rather, he is a composite of two other characters from The Witching Hour, Michael Curry and Aaron Lightner.

Other regular cast members include Annabeth Gish as Rowan’s estranged mother Deirdre Mayfair, Beth Grant as Rowan’s sister Carlotta Mayfair, Erica Gimpel as Rowan’s sister Ellie Mayfair and Jen Richards as Rowan’s friend Jojo.
