The second season of AMC’s Interview with the Vampire has been shooting at Prague’s Barrandov Studio over the past two months, and filming is now transitioning to locations across the Czech capital. Production on the series will take place adjacent to Old Town Square in Prague’s city center next week.
Streets surrounding the city’s towering Church of Our Lady before Týn have been reserved for production on Interview with the Vampire, suggesting that interiors at the 14th century Prague landmark could be utilized for filming.
In addition to the Týn Church, adjacent locations in Prague’s city center by Old Town Square might also be utilized for production on Interview with the Vampire.
Portions of Týnská ulička, Masná, Týnská, Dlouhá, and Pařížská streets in the vicinity of Old Town Square have all been reserved for production equipment for Interview with the Vampire from Sunday, May 28 through Saturday, June 3.
Prague’s Church of Our Lady before Týn, which looms high over the city’s Old Town Square, is one of the Czech capital’s most recognizable landmarks. Construction of the current form of the church, which replaced two older churches, began in the 1300s and was completed in the 1450s. The Gothic spires atop the Týn church reach 80 meters in height.
Prague is playing WWII-era Paris and potentially other locations in the second season of Interview with the Vampire, which covers the second half of Anne Rice‘s original novel. The book was previously adapted into a 1994 film with Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and a young Kirsten Dunst playing the primary roles of ageless vampires.
The first season of AMC’s Interview with the Vampire starred Sam Reid, Jacob Anderson, and Bailey Bass in those roles; while Reid and Anderson are back on board for the second season, Delainey Hayles is stepping in for the role played by Bass.
Eric Bogosian and Assad Zaman will also return for the second season of Interview with the Vampire, and they’ll be joined by newcomer Ben Daniels.
Interview with the Vampire is one of three major TV series shooting in Prague this summer. The third season of Amazon Studios’ The Wheel of Time is now shooting at Jordan Studios in Prague’s Letňany neighborhood, while the third season of Apple TV+’s Foundation is also about to begin filming in the Czech capital this month.
The AMC series is also the second major vampire production to hit Prague this year. Nosferatu, the latest film from director Robert Eggers starring Bill Skarsgård and Willem Dafoe, just wrapped filming in the Czech capital following a three-month shoot.
A release date for the second season of Interview with the Vampire has yet to be announced, but based on its production dates look for it to hit AMC at some point next year.
