True Blood was on location today filming episode 2 for their final season. On location were Anna Paquin, Ryan Kwanten, Chris Bauer, Sam Trammel and Joe Manganiello. The location used was an art colony made to look like an abandoned city. The street signs showed “Saint Alice Parish” and the windows were all boarded up on the businesses. Continue reading
The True Blood season 4 red carpet premiere was held last night at the Arclight theater in Hollywood. Sunset Boulevard was packed with fans and media covering the event for many media outlets. I was present at the premiere and also at the after party which was held at Social Hollywood club immediately following the premiere.
True Blood’s episode 4.01 “She’s Not There” was shown during the premiere as well as an extended trailer showing some action for the rest of True Blood’s upcoming fourth season. The new season looks like it will be an amazing one. I don’t wish to ruin the premiere by posting spoilers.
The cast seemed so happy to have been able to give fans another great season and can’t wait for everyone to see the new season. Alexander Skarsgard was super gracious to all the fans who waited outside in the blazing sun for over 7 hours just for a chance for a photo with him. He bypassed many of the big media outlets and walked right over to the fans who wished to have autographs or photographs. He appreciates all the fans and it was great to see that. I was able to chat for a short while with him and also expressed my gratitude for how he treats his fans and how much they appreciate that. Oh and the only photograph I took with cast were of course with Alexander (I hate my photograph but I could not miss the chance to have my photo with Alex)
I will write up more on the event and party when I have fully recovered from the “Fangover”. Kudos to HBO for an amazing evening and also to the cast who worked super hard this year to provide what looks like what will be another great season of True Blood. Waiting sucks but at least our wait is almost over! The new season will start on Sunday June 26, 2011. For HBO Go subscribers the second episode will be available soon after the first episode airs.

Rutina was pretty tight lipped but they were able to get this from her “”It’s going to be a wild ride for Tara, but I think she’s going to get some more stability—for a little bit anyway,” she explained. “And some more power maybe, and I think maybe some happiness for a little bit, but that’s about all I can tell you”
Sam Trammel let on that he really does not know yet exactly what will be in store for Bon Temps shape shifter. He had this to say:
“We just started two weeks ago,” Sam said. “We got the first two scripts, they us give us scripts when they’re done, they don’t hold onto them. I’ve read two.”
From what he’s gathered thus far, via creator Alan Ball and the other writers, is that this season will delve deeper into Sam’s shapeshifting.
“I know a couple of big broad stroke things that will happen to me this year, but I don’t know a lot of the specifics,” he said. “The whole first…the first ten minutes of the first episode, you’re going to be blown away with what is happening, and that’s going to set the tone for the rest of the season,” he explained.
