Mayfair Witches is based on Anne Rice's Lives of the Mayfair Witches book series. The TV adaptation follows Dr. Rowan Fielding (Alexandra Daddario), a neurosurgeon who learns she is the heir to a family of powerful witches.

"As she grapples with her newfound powers, she must contend with a sinister presence that has haunted her family for generations," an official description reads.

The trailer shows Rowan (Daddario) discover her family's dark legacy with the help of Ciprien Grieve (Tongayi Chirisa) and features glimpses of the demon Lasher (Jack Huston).

Harry Hamlin, Annabeth Gish, Beth Grant, Erica Gimpel and Jen Richards also have roles.

Mayfair Witches is created by Esta Spalding and Michelle Ashford and premieres Jan. 5 on AMC+.

AMC is also developing an adaptation of Rice's book Interview with the Vampire, which premiered last week.

Mayfair Witches and Interview with the Vampire are part of AMC's new Immortal Universe, based on Rice's works. The network acquired the rights to 18 books by the late author in June 2021.
