HBO has renewed True Blood for a sixth season.
Season 5 has only recently gotten underway in the US, and is fast-tracked to Australian screens by Showtime, with the addition of Christopher Meloni to the cast.
Creator Alan Ball has previously indicated he would no longer be a Showrunner on the series but he continues as Exec Producer.
Ball previously said, “True Blood has been, and will continue to be, a highlight of not only my career but my life. Because of the fantastic cast, writers, producers and crew, with whom I have been lucky enough to work these past five years, I know I could step back and the show will continue to thrive as I look forward to new and exciting ventures.”
