AMC has greenlit the third series in its ongoing Anne Rice Immortal Universe, with a new drama tentatively named Anne Rice’s The Talamasca.

The series, which is working under a working title as of now, will feature “the men and women responsible for tracking and containing the witches, vampires, werewolves and other creatures scattered around the globe.”

The secret society has been featured in several of Rice’s novels, including Vampire Chronicles and Lives of the Mayfair Witches, both of which have also been turned into live-action adaptations on AMC.
