As True Blood bites and tears its way through season 5, news as come out regarding the fate of the series…
Yes, HBO have confirmed that the vampire show will be back for Season 6, desite its ratings dropping this season. So everyone, including Stephen Moyer as Bill and Anna Paquin as Sookie, are set for another year on the series.
The only – potentially massive – change is the absence of Alan Ball.Ball was largely responsible for getting True Blood to TV and is the man behind American Beauty and Six Feet Under.
He will leave after season 5 to look after a series on Cinemax called Banshee. However, in February he confirmed that, should the series get picked up for season 6 it would have all the same production team in place.
What does that mean for the new season? Who knows, but in the meanwhile, Alan, fangs for the mamaries, sorry, memories.
