Great news vamp fans! HBO’s sexy and soap-alicious True Blood has been renewed for a sixth season! The news came today from HBO. According to The Huffington Post, “There’s no word yet on a premiere date or whether series star Anna Paquin’s (Sookie) pregnancy will affect shooting of the new season.” Anna and her True Blood co-star, Stephen Moyer are expecting twins!
True Blood has been a ratings winner for HBO. The premiere episode on June 10, 2012 had 5.2 million viewers. The most recent episode nabbed 4.7 million viewers. Season six of True Blood will be missing one key player: series creator and executive producer Alan Ball. He’ll step down as showrunner, but will still serve as special adviser to the series.
You can catch all the True Blood mayhem every Sunday night on HBO with season five hitting its stride starring Paquin, Moyer, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Alexander Skarsgard, Christopher Meloni, Chris Bauer, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Lauren Bowles, Valentina Cervi, Nelsan Ellis, Scott Foley, Janina Gavankar, Lucy Griffiths, Todd Lowe, Joe Manganiello, Michael McMillian, Denis O’Hare, Jim Parrack, Carrie Preston, Deborah Ann Woll, and our very own Carolyn Hennesy!
