Another new True Blood season 6 trailer was just posted by HBO. This one features Alcide! Waiting sucks but the new season is almost here:
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 a new casting call for True Blood season 6 episode 6.05 : F#ck The Pain Away:
In episode 6.05 of True Blood, we’ll meet Ben’s mother and father via flashback.
Not sure what to make of this casting call. Hopefully the flashback will serve a purpose.

Spoiler TV posted the following casting call plus a hint that this new character will survive season 6 and go on for a season 7 of the show (first time I’ve seen that True Blood will go past season 6 – great news for fans!)
Beginning in episode 6.06, there will be a new recurring vampire on True Blood named Wes! He was turned in the 1970s when he was in his mid 20′s. His ethnicity isn’t specified. He’s sexy, smart, compassionate, protective, and plays the guitar. He’s going to be involved in a love triangle with Jason and another vampire (hmmm… sounds like it could be Jessica, but the “other vampire” isn’t named). Wes will be a strong recurring role in season 6 and a regular in season 7 – so we know he “survives” season 6 – and some rear nudity is involved.
Spoiler TV Posted an addition to the previous casting call for True Blood episode 6.02: Titled “Here Comes the Sun”
The co-star role of Connor Farley is being cast. He’s about 45 and works for the Department of Wildlife. On his way to a meeting with the governor, he finds himself in a problematic situation.
This call is in addition to the previous casting call for episode 6.02 posted on 1/7/13 link here:
This page has all the casting calls for season 6 to date. Wonder why someone from the Department of Wildlife will be involved next season? Perhaps they trap a shifter? Waiting sucks!
TV Guide Mega Buzz posted a tidbit on Season 5 character : Lillith
What’s coming up on True Blood? — John
NATALIE: You know that creepy story we heard this week about Lilith, the first vampire, for whom Adam and Eve were supposedly created as food? Well, guess what? We’ll actually meet her this season — but not everyone will believe that she is who she says she is. “I don’t know if Roman believes it,” Christopher Meloni tells us. “He puts on the garb of a spiritual leader, possibly with a wink and a certain cynicism, so he’s willing to take that bet now that [she] isn’t real.”
There was a casting call for a character named “Lil” for episode 5.07: titled “In the Beginning”
[LIL] Female, early to late 20s, Caucasian. She’s supermodel beautiful. Strong and ethereal…no lines in the first episode. FULL FRONTAL NUDITY REQUIRED.

Looks like they might be planning ahead for True Blood’s season 5. Found a casting call on line:
TRUE BLOOD: New series regular
Start Date: Mid-November
[New Female Vampire] 19-30′s A dangerous female seductress. Must be smoking hot! Nudity required.
Hmm I wonder who this will be and whether or not Pam will approve of her. Perhaps a new love interest for her? Waiting SUCKS!
A spoiler image shown above has surfaced showing Eric Northman in the daylight. The video below shows a very playful Eric swimming in the daytime. (now the spoiler makes a bit more sense). Looks like ingesting so much Fae blood has a lingering effect! Just hope he fares ok in the daylight and does not go up in flames.
the gallery below contains screen caps from the video above. Enjoy!
There was an extended trailer shown at the end of True Blood episode 4.02 “You Smell Like Dinner”. (the screen cap above is from that promo trailer. Eric is responding to King Bill zooming into Sookie’s home) Once again Alan Ball is teasing True Blood fans with a lot of action. The screen caps help show a little bit more detail where the video just zips by too quickly. Yes we do hear Bill , I mean King Bill say to Nan some of the issues he has with Eric Northman (how he does not respect The Authority). We also hear Bill say how the answer is for the vampire to meet “his final death” and we see Bill going in for a staking.
Of course Alan Ball wants fans to think that King Bill will stake Eric Northman. Remember though how much Alan Ball loves to cut and splice scenes out of sequence. I’m pretty sure that King Bill does not kill Eric Northman in episode 4.03 (ok having been able to watch some filming for episode 4.11 I know Eric is still alive until at least that episode)
We do see Eric Northman held by the bodyguards (guess his name on the manifest was not enough) He is kneeling in front of the King. Notice how we do not see the face of the vampire that King Bill is staking in the photo below. Hmmm. We only see the back of the head.
King Bill going in for a “staking” below:
The video I used to do the screen caps is found here on Youtube:
Another tease for fans has to do with King Bill and just what the heck is he doing with Marnie in the image below?
As if that image alone were not enough to leave fans with questions here is another image that needs some explaining. Does not King Bill wonder whether or not the Bellefleurs of today in Bon Temps somehow have a relation with his deceased with Caroline Bellefleur? (we saw the dedication of the
Caroline Bellefleur center in Bon Temps in the season 4 premiere). Otherwise Portia Bellefleur would somehow be related to King Bill. UPDATED: I heard Bellefleur but I guess it was Caroline Compton! LOL never mind! Still nice to see King Bill having some fun.
Amnesia Eric does look quite different from the swaggering Eric Northman fans are used to seeing. Waiting sucks but at least we have a lot to keep us teased with!
It will be a lot of fun to see this “dream” perhaps involving Godric. I do see Sookie in her bed. Wonder what Eric is doing there? Hmmm..
Looks like Jason is not the only law enforcer who will be having a rough time this season. Sheriff Andy Bellefleur is shown meeting a critter with a big bite (and it’s not a vampire).
The gallery may be found on this page on the site: TBS04 E02 True Blood screen caps 2011
The HBO “Buzz” for season 4 video was taped during the True Blood season 4 red carpet premiere and after party. The video also included some snippets of season 4 of True Blood. The gallery below contains the screen cap images for the newer scenes. Spoiler alert!
Looks like the image above is for episode 4.02. Tara tries to stake Eric and he is not amused! Poor Tara didn’t she learn to not mess with vampires in season 3?
The image above shows Vampire Pam rushing into Sookie’s home. Busted! Pam is wearing the same outfit that is shown in the image below from a Season 4 promo for episode 4.03:
Looks like Sookie is tending to Eric’s feet. The look on Pam’s face is PRICELESS! At least now we have a better idea of why Pam is on the ground! Waiting sucks but the new season is less than 24 hours away!
In the latest True Blood season 4 promo video- Witches versus Vampires fans got another tease for the upcoming season. No surprise that witches will add to the supernatural mix for the show. The title of the promo does give a little hint that these are not the “good witches” perhaps and may cause some major issues for the vampires. The character of Marnie shown in image above is portrayed by Fiona Shaw. Her cast mates have said nothing but great things about her work on the show.
The whole idea of having her character as a “necromancer” has also intrigued fans and yes led to more questions. In the witches vs. vampires video we do hear Lafayette pose the question “where are you going to get dead body”? Yes just what is it that Marnie intends to do with that dead body? Raise it? Perhaps on the guise of helping but instead has another motive?
We did get to see the way that Alexander Skarsgard will be interpreting Eric Northman as he “loses his identity”. In the video we see Eric at Sookie’s home and he definitely looks much like his viking vamp self. Even at the Moon and Goddess we see Eric “taking a bite” out of Marnie. She is wearing the same shirt as in the first image above so it is from the wiccan prayer circle scene. They are not having a post coital bite (clothes are on) So why take the bite? More to muddle the “waters” I believe. Why doesn’t the silver chain she is shown wearing in the first image protect her from the bite? (it could be white gold but she is also wearing what look like silver rings on her right hand below) Or maybe it does. We do see a very different Eric in some of the other videos.
Eric does look very “different” below. But still not like the Eric we see in the first waiting sucks video. Something “else” must happen in between. (can’t wait to finally find out just how the heck it all happens)
Ok yes vampires bite humans but why is Eric doing that? Marnie does not look the one he would normally “taste” (as he called it in season one). Was it an act of dominance? Or more of the big old bad viking vamp for fans to see so it contrasts against the vulnerable Eric we see later in the video? It was cool for me as a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse books to finally have a glimpse into some of the “book 4″ action. Yes the show is different from the books yada yada yada. Still loosely based on the books so it was still cool for me to see the vulnerable Eric. Even in the “screen test” promo video we could see Alexander practicing the “vulnerable” Eric by changing the gaze of his eyes.
Way too many possiblities for that for me to try and cover in just a few sentences. Either way I hope we get some more glimpses and possilibilities for the witchy mayhem in the next promo!
Bill Compton is seen “entertaining” a dark haired beauty in this video. At first it did look like it might be a bit twisted if it were indeed Portia Bellefleur (cast by Courtney Ford). I kept wondering if it were not really Portia in these images. (I just can’t imagine Alan Ball having Bill Compton “entertain” a possible relative that is even too creepy a thought to shake). If it is not Portia who could it be?
I also thought it could be the wiccan character of “Daisy”. The hair color is not the same (but these videos are great for throwing fans off a lot). A new character that was cast for Season 4 was Paola Turbay who will play the character of Antonia. Casting news posted here for her character of Antonia. Could this be her in these scenes? Not much has been said of her character for the new season. So far all we know is below from the casting call:
True Blood’s Season 4 episode 4.03 “If you love me-why am I dyin?”
[ANTONIA] 20s to 40s. FIERCE. Must speak fluent Spanish. First appears in episode 2 and then again in episodes 3,4,5 and 6.
When the casting call first came out there was some buzz on how she may be connected to Jesus. Could she be a relative? Is she another witch? Way too many questions still waiting for more “clues”.
Here are some other images of Ms. Turbay:
The character of Portia had a “possible nudity” listed in the casting call but in this scene we see a t-shirt clad partner. The promos really don’t give away all the goods and the actual scene may have more “showing’. It had been bugging me. I’m not ruling out that it still is the character of Portia but I’m now wondering if it is really Antonia in those scenes. We really don’t see enough of her face to really tell just who is it that Bill is with in those scenes.
The screen cap above shows a bit more from a different angle. The shape of the nose could be Paola’s. (the tip of the nose looks like hers) The facial structure is similar. But then Alan Ball is great at misleading fans in these videos. I just took a look at the possibility from a different angle. Also found it interesting that the promo showed the following image below right after Bill’s love scene. When did Bill get the fancy hidey hole? Probably part of the remodeling of his home that we see completed. (interesting also how his side burns don’t magically re-appear every time he “sleeps”. )
Whoever it is that Bill is “entertaining” it will be interesting to find out just what she will mean to Bill. Will Bill Compton continue his plans of eliminating every vampire who has had some of Sookie’s blood to protect her? It was quite a big “deal” to him in season 3 finale. It definitely made for a heck of a plot twist and cause of a lot of anxiety for some fans.
Hopefully there will be a new promo video this weekend. Pretty sure some questions will be answered but also sure there will be many more raised. Waiting sucks indeed! Can’t wait for season 4. Hope to hear from other fans on what they “see” in the videos and images.
