Though an admittedly soapy show, it's proven no secret over the last 10 weeks that HBO's 'True Blood' earned back quite a bit of good will from the previous seasons, with further plotted course correction heading into a seventh year. Now, conversations have begun as to whether 'True Blood' season 7 will prove the final year in Bon Temps, so which way will HBO lean?
Good news for 'True Blood' fans, and especially those on their way to the bloodsucking HBO drama's Comic-Con 2013 panel this year: Sookie Stackhouse and her supernatural stories will officially return next summer. HBO has announced their 'True Blood' season 7 renewal, but will anything change about the fang-banging drama, following the behind-the-scenes turmoil of the current year?
Earlier today, we caught our first look at a new scene from 'True Blood' season 6 that featured a major character letting loose some serious anger, but that has nothing on what new showrunner Brian Buckner has in store for the HBO drama's sixth year. Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux) previewed what fans can expect from Buckner's work on the new season, and it sounds even sexier and crazier than before!
Just when you think AMC has the market cornered on show-runner drama, HBO injects some new blood into 'True Blood.' Following series creator Alan Ball's departure from the series after its fifth season, it seems Ball's replacement Mark Hudis is similarly being replaced, prior to wrapping on season 6. Longtime 'True Blood' presence Brian Buckner will take the reigns going forward, but is there trouble in 'True Blood's future?
