Though HBO’s upcoming weekend and ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 3 premiere will certainly get our blood pumping, the original HBO bloodsucker is about to start making noise. ‘True Blood‘ has officially set a season 6 premiere date of June 16, but what will we see of a sixth year in Bon Temps, given all the behind-the-scenes drama? Find out about the latest from ‘True Blood’ season 6 inside!
Fang-bangers and ‘True Blood’ fans rejoice, for ‘Game of Thrones’ will only steal the spotlight for so long. The long-running HBO vampire soap has officially announced its return date as Sunday, June 16, picking up where the events of season 5 finale “Save Yourself” left off. Unfortunately, the press release reveals next to nothing about the upcoming season, but might we see a teaser in the near future? This weekend, even?
Along with the recent show-runner swap changing from Mark Hudis to Bryan Buckner, season 5 guest star and former ‘Last Resort’ star Robert Patrick has been upgraded to series regular, while ‘True Blood’ season 6 also features Luke Grimes as the “Jim Morrison of vampires,” ‘House‘s Karolina Wydra, Rutger Hauer as mysterious vampire Macklyn, ‘Rubicon’s’ Arliss Howard as Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell, and ‘Eastenders’ star Robert Kazinsky as a series regular and new Fae love interest to Sookie.
Few other details are available on the sixth season of HBO’s fang-banging hit, though it’s known that ‘True Blood’ season 6 will take place over 10 episodes, down from the usual 12, largely to accommodate series star Anna Paquin’s pregnancy with co-star Stephen Moyer.
