We have our first glimpses of new characters for this season including Rutger Hauer and Jurnee Smollett. Images in the gallery below. Photo credit : HBO J. Johnson 2013
The May 17, 2013 issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine has 2 True Blood related photos. The first one features Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin on set. Stephen is directing the season 6 premiere episode. The story picks up right where season 5 ended with Alexander Skarsgard (Eric) and Anna Paquin (Sookie) are attempting to escape a ‘very very scary’ and naked -Bill. “I’m really Method” stated Stephen.
The second photo was part of the guilty pleasures article and shows Joe Manganiello in his role of Alcide Herveaux. “Sure you watch for the supoernatural drama. But when you check the episode rations, that’s not what the S stands for, now is it?”
HBO has released a new trailer today, it is a bit longer and looks as if it promises to be full of action and giving the fans a fun-filled season!
Recently an article was posted on TV Line discussing the possibility of a True Blood season 6 death. This has set off a storm of buzz and worry across the fandom. Here is what was written:
Question: There are rumors that True Blood is going to kill off the gorgeous and sexy Eric Northam! Please tell me this isn’t true. He is one of the main reasons I watch. —Kelly
Ausiello: I can neither confirm or deny the rumors, but I can offer you two pieces of evidence that suggest such a twist is in the realm of possibility. The first one comes care of Joe Manganiello, who tells TVLine, “We’re getting to the point in the season now where people are starting to die. The table reads are starting to get smaller, and I’m sure they will continue to do that.” Exhibit B, meanwhile, arrives in the form of Episode 7′s title — “The Funeral.” Sorry I don’t have better news for you Kelly.
EOnline also posted a snippet on the possibility of deaths on True Blood:
Alicia R.: We haven’t heard a peep aboutTrue Blood from my bb Ryan Kwanten. What’s he doing?
He’s probably doing sit-ups somewhere. God bless him. But for real, we did just chat with him about the new season of True Blood, and he delivered some harrowing news. “There are more deaths,” he tells us. “Some favorite characters may not last.” We did not like that piece of scoop (don’t you dare touch Lafayette, TB writers!), but we did like it when Kwanten said that the show was getting back to the supernatural elements and madness that it’s famous for.
Another “death” comment by another cast member:
Eliza: We’re less than two months away from the new season of True Blood, so how about some scoop to celebrate?
Well, can the possibility of death really be cause for celebration? Oh, all right. Take it away, Joe Manganiello: “We’re in the middle of episode six, moving right along. Right now, we still have the big cast with the big table-reads, but pretty soon everybody’s going to start getting knocked off!” Yikes! As for the latest showrunner swap, Manganiello says, “I think withBrian Buckner replacing Alan Ball there’s maybe some hair being let down, maybe some ‘let’s get wild, let’s get crazy!’” SOURCE:
Sorry but I am not drinking the Kool Aid yet. I HIGHLY DOUBT that Eric Northman will be killed off. The whole speculation based on episode 6.07 being titled “Funeral” does not mean it will be a vampire death. Vampires are not buried nor do they receive funerals so why would that title mean it’s a vampire?
Yes there will be a few deaths in season 6. I’m pretty sure a few of them will be in the premiere episode. (my guesses would be–Luna won’t survive the skin walking and probably Nora will be killed as they leave the Authority HQ again all just a guess). There will be OTHER deaths as well. Just look at the casting calls for season 6! They always add a lot of characters that just get killed.
The theme for season 6 of True Blood does seem to be that there will be a “war” between vampires and humans. The actions of the vampires and all the killing of humans in season 5 will have a definite impact on their freedom in season 6. In wars, there are casualties. Again I do not believe that Eric Northman will be one of the casualties.
Waiting sucks but even more when there are nothing but rumors all over the internet! There is a big ____ will die every season on True Blood. It’s not a new rumor!
Alexander Skarsgard appeared on the Live with Kelly and Michael show on ABC today 04/09/13. It was a lot of fun to hear Alex talk about True Blood and his upcoming film “Disconnect”.
It was funny when Michael and Alex stood next to each other to see who was taller!!
He did not spill too much about True Blood other than there is an upcoming war. Seems that the humans are giving a bit of ‘resistance’ as he said. Sounds like season 6 will be another action filled season. (just hope a lot of the action involves Eric Northman!)
Video from Live with Kelly and MIchael:
Live with Kelly and Michael tweeted this photo and asked fans who do they think is taller? Looks really close. Who do you think is taller?

HBO showed a trailer before the Game of Thrones season premiere last night that included new footage for their Spring 2013 line up. Many shows were featured Newsroom, VEEP and yes True Blood. Some of the scenes were already shown in the teaser trailer but there were a few new items in this video.
Looks like Jason and Niall (Ok that is Rutger Hauer..he could be Macklyn but he looks too comfortable in that kitchen) are in Jason’s house? or is it Sookie’s?
This looks like Sookie walking through the woods:
The HQ video is below from youtube. The gallery has the True Blood screencaps. Waiting sucks but at least the new season will be here soon!! (ok not till June 16th but time flies)
HBO finally gave fans a sneak peek into upcoming season 6! They posted the teaser trailer #1. I’m hoping that means that a # 2 is soon to follow.
Screencaps are below. Don’t blink or you might miss something! I did see a few scenes that I was able to see them rehearsing earlier this year. Waiting sucks but at least now we have new footage and a season 6 release date of June 16, 2013.
We see Rutger Hauer in the scene below. Almost looks like Jason is bloody faced from the Authority escape. Was Niall waiting for him in his truck? (or maybe he was at his house?)
Jason is here in this scene:
Wishing all the True Blood and Alex fans out there a Happy Valentine’s Day. True Blood posted several “valentine’s” on their Facebook page. (using different quotes from the show)
My favorite from Pam (season 5):
Of course Eric Northman will always hold our hearts: (season 4 his famous “heart-shake” scene)
Here’s a new photo of Alexander Skarsgard to help start off your Valentine’s Day. Alex attended the New Museum opening of “NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star” last night in New York City. 2/13/13.
The gallery below has more images from the NYC event last night:
Charlaine Harris posted a bit of news related to the coda which will be released after “Dead Ever After”"
I hope a lot of you read this thread today, because I’ve chosen it to make a little announcement. I just saw the cover for “After Dead,” which is the coda to the Sookie books. My publisher decided to publish it before Christmas in a separate volume. It will be a slim book containing what happens AFTER “DEA” to many of the characters I’ve created over the years. And Lisa is drawing a Sookie alphabet for the book. There are several other features under consideration for this volume, which is intended as a stocking stuffer. I’ll post more when I know it.
Here’s what Charlaine wrote earlier re. the coda:
6915 Maker 2012-09-17 11:24: I just finished writing the Coda, which will comprise the futures of many of the important characters in the Sookieverse. I can’t possibly cram all of them into the last book. We’re still deciding how and when to make the Coda public.
Amazon has the coda already available on their site. Not a lot of information of yet (title to be released October 2013)
The last Sookie Stackhouse book will be out in May 2013. It will be sad to see the series end but it is great to hear we will get a little bit more after the book in the coda.
Here are more of the photos as promised taken of True Blood rehearsal on location. Alexander Skarsgard was on set for his role of Eric Northman. Waiting sucks but it definitely will be worth the wait! Alex looked pretty deep in thought in the photo above getting ready to film the scene. Kudos to Audrey Fisher for wardrobing him in that amazing black suit! (she recently tweeted that Alex would be wearing some Hugo Boss in season 6 for his role of Eric)
The filming earlier in the day was all interior within the home above. The home they used was absolutely stunning when lit up at night.
More of the behind the scenes action that makes the show for fans.
Prepping a vehicle that was used in the scene:
I have other images that I will upload closer to air date for the episode. (don’t want to spoil!!)
Pretty sure the rehearsals and filming was for True Blood episode 6.02 titled: “Here Comes the Sun”. The page here has the casting call for all the season six episodes to date. SPOILERS
Prior post of the night watching the rehearsals and filming. Alex was amazing to the fans that waited many hours for a chance to get a photo. He had to be tire but stayed to make many fans very happy!!
True Blood is busy filming season 6 and I was able to watch some of the rehearsals and filming last night. It is not often that they are close enough to where I live for me to be able to see this so I just had to head over! It always pays to be nice to the neighbors in the are. When I was at this location last week I chatted with one of the neighbors who is also a big True Blood fan and they mentioned that they might be back this week and yes there were!
Alexander Skarsgard was on set filming for his role of Eric Northman It was great to see him in action as Eric.
Alex was also very kind and took photos with fans that had been there to watch and he also signed some autographs. It was great to see just how amazing he is with his fans.
I’m pretty sure he was tired and would have loved to just gone straight home but he took the time to come over and take many photos with the fans.
He even re-took a photo with a fan whose photo was blurry. Alex was “of course it’s blurry take another one”. (the fan above is a big fan of his and was so happy to finally meet him and have her photo taken with him!)
It will be interesting to see this episode in season six. I believe it was rehearsal and filming for episode 6.02. Once again I was amazed at how many people work behind the scenes to film and create the episode for fans. Some more photos of the crew:
Sorry that some of the images are blurry. We were very far from the rehearsals and it was very dark causing lots of ‘noise’ for my camera. I’m uploading the images to a new gallery. I’ll update this post soon! Enjoy. Waiting sucks but it will be worth the wait!!
UPDATE: First batch of photos are up on the gallery on this page:
Saturday Night Live is looking for hosts and musicians for their weekly shows for the second half of their season!
We would LOVE to see Alexander host SNL, we think he’d be awesome, especially because we know what a great sense of humor he has! It would be challenging as well…and we know how much he is always looking for a challenge.

Huffington Post chatted with Kristin Bauer van Straten on True Blood season 6. Kristin mentions that she has had her first wardrobe as Pam. I am looking forward to seeing what her character wears next season!
“True Blood” star Kristin Bauer stopped by HuffPost Live to discuss the show’s upcoming Season 6 with host Alyona Minkovski. Bauer said the cast will start filming in January.
“I had my first wardrobe fitting today, which for Pam is such a huge part of my character,” she shared. “And it’s like Christmas for me.”
Bauer also gave fans a glimpse of what happens behind the show’s graphic blood and gore.
“If you ever saw the making of ‘True Blood,’ if they ever sort of wanted to ruin it for the fans,” Baer said, “if I look right there, at what the camera is seeing, it looks kinda creepy. But then if I just look to the side, there’s some construction guys in flannel and boots with gallons of blood labeled. It just becomes ridiculous. It’s really the magic of the movies.”
