True Blood is one of my favorite shows on Television. It’s a real vampire show. None of that pansy ass Twilight or Vampire Diaries crap. No sparkling vampires that can walk in the sunlight and none of the Don Juan De Marco meets Nosferatu crap either. It’s hardcore, with blood and guts, occasional explicit sex scenes and a story line that keeps you guessing and surprises you when you least expect it.
Great News for True Blood fans is that the 6th season is starting on the 16th of June 2013 in the United States. South Africa is not that far behind when it comes to True Blood, so you could probably expect the new season to start on DSTV a week or two after that. I’m curious to see what the focus will be on in the 6th season. This teaser trailer below gives you a 30 second sneak peak of what you can expect.
In case you did not know, True Blood is based on a series of novels (The Southern Vampire Mysteries) by Charlaine Harris. The series was created and is produced by Alan Ball (who directed various episodes of Six Feet Under and wrote and co-produced the 1999 film American Beauty). True Blood features appearances by Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse), Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton), Alexander Skarsgård (Eric Northman), Rutina Wesley (Tara Thornton), Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte), Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse), Chris Bauer, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Lauren Bowles, Nelsan Ellis, Janina Gavankar, Lucy Griffiths, Todd Lowe, Joe Manganiello, Michael McMillian, Carrie Preston and Deborah Ann Woll.
