There are lots of news floating around about the upcoming season of HBO’s vampire show, True Blood. Season 3 ended this past fall and is scheduled to begin season 4 the summer of 2011. Even though it is a few months away filming has begun and so has the spoilers and leaks for the show. So, hang on for a wild ride.
First season 4 is supposed to be about “witches” if this is true then does that mean that Alan Ball is going to stick more to the books like he did last season? The second season was so far off from the books and in my opinion the worse season but last season was closer to Charlaine Harris’ stories and a much better season. Yes I take into account that I was a fan of the books for MANY years and am probably harder on the show because of this but True Blood in any form is better than no True Blood and True Blood in any form is great!
Second, the characters being casted are interesting, some are from the book and some are new characters. Here is the list of casting calls from Entertainment Weekly:
- Marnie: A pretend palm reader who gets possessed by the spirit of a real witch.
- Portia: Andy’s sister, a very pretty lawyer. Likely to get naked a lot.
- Naomi: An Asian-American, lesbian cage fighter.
- Queen Mab: A temper-filled beauty who presides over a fairy/fantasy world.
- Suzanne McKittrick: A spoiled, Real Housewives-type who is rumored to be a Shapeshifter
Third, the title of the first episode is “She’s not there”. When the season finale ended, Sookie left in a ball of light and we are all assuming that she is going to fairy land..but what awaits her there?
With these tips it only has us waiting for more news and looking forward to hopefully the best season of True Blood yet.
So, do we hope to see Eric with amnesia? What about Bill, is this when he will meet Portia?
Do you want more vampires, witches, shifters, werewolves, fairies, maenads or another magical creature?
What things do you think will be in the next season of True Blood?
