HBO aired a new spring preview trailer before the premiere of Game of Thrones last night. There were snippets of new True Blood season 7 in the trailer. Don’t blink or you will miss it. Of course they did not show any new scenes of Eric Northman! Hopefully next trailer will have Eric!
This scene was definitely filmed on location (saw this filming):
This was the photo I took on location. The cast was looking into the camera and the screen cap above is how it came out:
HBO PR tweeted the season 7 premiere date for True Blood.
The new season will air on June 22, 2014. The wait will soon be over~ They also stated that a teaser for the new season of True Blood will air on Sunday April 6 just before the new season of Game of Throne premieres. Great news!
True Blood is busy filming their final season. Yes season 7 will be the last one for the show. The location used was located in Los Angeles at the home used for the “Bellefleur” scenes. The home is where Sheriff Andy and his half fairy daughter and Arlene live. Chris Bauer was the only cast member on set while I was there (Had to leave early sadly). When Chris saw that fans were across the street he came on over and took photos and signed autographs.
It really is a small world since there were 2 groups of fans who were from Germany and it turned out they were from the same city! Ingo was in town after filming a music video for ATB and the ladies (one was named Chris ) were also on vacation. It is great meeting fans from all around the world!
The filming was interior shots so we could not see that but could hear them saying “rolling” , action and cut. There was also a large curtain/blue screen and scaffolding in front: Continue reading →

NEW EVENT MINISERIES ‘HEROES REBORN’ COMES TO NBC IN 2015
Tim Kring to Executive Produce 13 New Episodes of Groundbreaking Series ‘Heroes’
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Feb. 22, 2014 — NBC is bringing back its conquering “Heroes.”
An iconic series that still commands a rabid fan base, “Heroes” will return to the network in 2015 as an event miniseries with original creator and executive producer Tim Kring at the helm, it was announced today by NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke.
NBC has ordered 13 episodes for a new stand-alone story arc entitled “Heroes Reborn,” with all details of storylines and characters being kept under wraps.
“The enormous impact ‘Heroes’ had on the television landscape when it first launched in 2006 was eye-opening,” said NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept. Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”
The original series chronicled the life-changing stories of a series of unrelated ordinary people who discovered they had superhuman abilities. As the saga unfolded, they learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world.
With the return of “Heroes Reborn,” NBC will launch a digital series prior to the 2015 premiere that will introduce the characters and new storylines. This leveraging of social media is a way for fans to re-engage with what was one for the true pioneers in multiplatform storytelling.
The iconic sci-fi series, which ran on NBC from 2006-10 and was an immediate hit, ranked as television’s #1 new drama with an average audience of 14.5 million viewers during its initial season. The show was Golden Globe-nominated in its first year of eligibility for best drama series; it won the BAFTA Award for best international series, the AFI Award, the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films Saturn Award, two People’s Choice Awards and the Television Critics Association Award for Program of the Year.
“Heroes” remains one of the best-selling TV series on DVD of all time with more than 10 million units sold.
