True Blood season 7 will be the final season for the show. Casting calls are starting to surface! Huge thanks to M from Bookies page on FB! This has more information to the tweet sent out by William Keck this week:
Episode 7.2 ‘(title:TBA)’
writer: Brian Buckner, director: Lee Rose
to film around mid-january 2014
Woman AKA Sylvie: 20s, beautiful, French. Must be French and speak French fluently. Love interest to Eric (Alexander Skarsgard)… Episode 2 Arc, on the final season of True Blood.
This role requires full frontal nudity excluding genitalia. SOURCE
Sure seems that they have set things in motion for it to be Sookie and Bill in the end game for the series. I would love to eat my words mine you. Eric fans have been used to nothing but decimation of his character since season one. We had glimpses of what might have been in season 4 when we saw another side to his character. No matter what Eric Northman will always be why I loved True Blood (and of course the way Alex brought his character to life).
True Blood episode 6.08 is called “Dead Meat” and 2 co-star roles are being cast: a guard and a bottling plant foreman. A huge thanks to SpoilerFairy for sending the info!! Waiting sucks but the new season is almost here.
Sounds like they are rebuilding the TruBlood factories. A photo last week surfaced that showed Alexander Skarsgard on set filming at a location that is an industrial area (and could pass as a factory). They were also filming on a closed set in the same area later in the week. The photo shows boxes of what could be “TruBlood” :
There are a few songs with this title. Here is a version by Sean Lennon (but I think they might use a more punk version for the episode):
The sickly vampire call makes me think that perhaps the human war on vampires might include the design of a blood virus that could affect vampires. That or perhaps Hep D makes a reappearance on the show (it was mentioned in season 1).
The sixth season of True Blood will premiere on Sunday June 16, 2013 and news has slowly been dripping out. The seventh episode for the new season will be titled “Funeral”. Spoiler TV posted the following information also on a casting call:
Episode 6.07 of True Blood is called, “The Funeral.” There will be a flashback to 1665 and the Plague, and the role of King Charles II is being cast. In the present day, there will be a scene set in a Tru Blood factory. Also, we’ll meet Nicole’s mother, Mary, who will recur in 2 episodes.
It’s interesting to see that there will be a scene in a Tru Blood factory. They were all destroyed in season 5 or so I thought? Hopefully they are in the process of restoring the factories or the vampires will be in even more trouble. Rumors have already surfaced that there is an upcoming “war”.
Pretty sure that the actions of the vampires from season 5 will cause major issues for them this season. The humans will not stand for any more of their bloodshed. (the character of the Governor was listed as being pretty much “anti-vampire” so he will most likely make things very rough for the vampires of Louisiana)
Spoiler TV posted the following casting call for True Blood season 6:
A sexy, dangerous vampire named Violet will be part of a love triangle in seasons 6 & 7. (Looks like she’ll be the 3rd side of the love triangle involving Jason and the other new vampire, Wes; unless of course there’s gonna be more than one triangle, or the triangle turns into a square or something.)
Another love triangle on the show?? Did they not learn from the other ones? Oh well. Waiting sucks. I’ll post the expanded casting call once I get it. To see all the casting calls to date for season 6 of True Blood please visit this page:
UPDATE: More information from Michael Ausiello regarding the character of Violet:
Question: I long for hot weather when vampires and werewolves take their clothes off! Any True Blood scoop? —Jenilee Ausiello: Yep — I can tell you with whom those vampires and werewolves will be stripping down! She’s Violet, a hot-as-hell, tough-as-nails blood-sucker in, give or take, her 600s (though she’ll look about 25). Not only do I hear that she’ll be mixed up in a major love triangle, the role will go from recurring this season to series regular the next. Got casting tips? Hit the comments!
