AMC’s astonishing Interview with the Vampire is almost back for its second season, and it looks like we’ve got some new vampire rules to learn before then.

Season 2 sees vampires Louis de Pointe du Lac (Jacob Anderson) and Claudia (Delainey Hayles) journeying to Europe to find Old World vampires. They’ll soon meet up with the Théâtre des Vampires in Paris, headed up by the thespian vampire Santiago (Ben Daniels).

A teaser from the upcoming season puts Santiago front and center as he tells Louis the laws of being a vampire. First up, each coven must have a leader. Second, the dark gifts of vampirism must never be given to children. (Sorry, Claudia!) And finally, no vampire may destroy another vampire. Sounds pretty cut-and-dry, but knowing how things tend to go for Louis and Claudia, it surely won’t be long before these laws are broken to smithereens. Especially not with a vengeful Lestat de Lioncourt (Sam Reid) still on their tail.

Interview with the Vampire premieres May 12 on AMC and AMC+.
