The first of Rice’s Lives of the Mayfair Witches books, The Witching Hour, is nearly 1,000 pages long. To fit the story into the show’s eight-episode season, several changes were necessary. One significant alteration was combining the characters Aaron and Michael into Ciprien. With the renewal for a second season, the series now has the opportunity to delve deeper into the story.

Release Window and Latest Updates

The most recent update on Mayfair Witches season 2 reveals a release window rather than a specific date. According to a tweet from the Immortal Universe’s official X (formerly Twitter) page, the second season won’t air until 2025. Although a precise release date is not yet available, it is anticipated to arrive in the early months of that year.

Quick Renewal and Production Status

AMC didn’t take long to decide on the future of Mayfair Witches. By February 2023, about a month after the show’s premiere, the network officially renewed it for a second season. Despite the scarcity of news due to Hollywood strikes affecting the industry throughout the year, the second season is still in progress. While the exact stage of production is unclear, it has been confirmed that new cast members have joined the project.

Cast Changes and New Additions

The first season of Mayfair Witches saw the deaths of several characters, including Rowan’s cousin Tessa (Madison Wolfe), her mother Deirdre (Annabeth Gish), and her aunt Carlotta (Beth Grant). These characters must return in flashbacks to appear in the second season. Alexandra Daddario will reprise her role as Rowan, and new cast members include Ted Levine as Cortland’s sinister father, Julien, Thora Birch as Gifford Mayfair, and Alyssa Jirrels as the revenge-seeking Moira Mayfair.

Storyline and Adaptation of Book 2

Mayfair Witches season 2 will adapt the second book in the trilogy, Lasher. In the season 1 finale, Rowan turns Cortland to stone before vanishing with her newborn child, destined to become Lasher. While the first season followed the plot of The Witching Hour, season 2 will focus on Lasher, with Lasher becoming a central character. Co-showrunner Esta Spalding revealed in an interview with TVLine that the new season would feature both Rowan and an adult Lasher, with Rowan playing an active role in the storyline, a departure from the book’s narrative.
