Tommy Lightfoot Garrett of Highlight Hollywood updates us on season 6. Below the Read More, for the spoiler-averse.
The article has some editorializing on season 5 and quotes Carrie Preston’s comments from earlier in the week, so if you want to read the whole thing, check it out here! I’ve only excerpted the new nuggets of spoilery information that intrigued me below.
A source on the set of “True Blood” tells Highlight Hollywood, “Mark Hudis had a meeting early in January, and he talked things through, and maybe it’s because we have a great team, but everyone is on board for this wild ride. But, Mark does know the core fans were not all happy last year, so he’s hoping to bring them back into the fold,” the source said.Though Alan Ball isn’t the official honcho or showrunner, he’ll still be involved in a limited basis on some of the plots, just not the main ones. “Tommy, the chemistry this year is incredible. I just hope the fans are excited, because there will be a major event that happens on the season premiere in June, that will restart the clock. It’s definitely something most people want to see, and will be reinvigorated by this show,” our insider tells Highlight Hollywood.What about Eric? “A big year is planned for him!” Bill? “Things change in the second episode, and Bill fans will be happy as well.” Pam and Tara? “Challenges and egos will play a big part in these two characters.” Sookie, Jason and Rutger Hauer’s character? “Shocking! Game changing,” the source tells Highlight Hollywood. “It’s a war, but nothing like what happened last season. This is a war of hearts!” Dare we say it?We’ll sneak on the set next week, and see what else we can learn about what to expect come June, when “True Blood” returns to HBO.
