HIT HBO SERIES TRUE BLOOD KICKS OFF FOURTH SEASON JUNE 26

At the conclusion of season three of TRUE BLOOD, vampire king Russell Edgington was buried alive in a pit of concrete, apparently ending his plans for world domination. But what happened to Sookie, who disappeared into a flash of light? Will Bill be able to make things right after breaking Sookie’s heart? And what awaits Eric, who nearly joined Russell in limbo?

The Emmy®-nominated TRUE BLOOD kicks off its 12-episode fourth season SUNDAY, JUNE 26 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, followed by other new episodes on subsequent Sundays at the same time. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, the show takes place in the not-too-distant future, when vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source.

The series follows the on-and-off romance between waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, and 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). Alan Ball (creator of the Emmy®-winning HBO series “Six Feet Under”) created and executive produces the show, which is based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.

Other returning cast regulars on TRUE BLOOD include: Ryan Kwanten as Sookie’s trouble-prone brother Jason Stackhouse; Rutina Wesley as her best friend Tara Thornton; Sam Trammell as Sookie’s shape-shifting boss Sam Merlotte; Nelsan Ellis as Tara’s sharp-tongued cousin Lafayette Reynolds; Chris Bauer as detective Andy Bellefleur; Carrie Preston as Arlene Fowler, a Merlotte’s waitress; Todd Lowe as Andy’s cousin Terry Bellefleur; Jim Parrack as Jason’s friend Hoyt Fortenberry; Alexander Skarsgård as vampire sheriff Eric Northman; Deborah Ann Woll as teen vamp Jessica Hamby; Kristin Bauer van Straten as Eric’s vampire sidekick Pam; Marshall Allman as Sam’s brother Tommy Mickens; Joe Manganiello as werewolf Alcide; Lauren Bowles as Holly, a Merlotte’s waitress; Kevin Alejandro as Lafayette’s boyfriend Jesus; and Jessica Tuck as vampire spokesperson Nan Flanagan.

Other returning cast members include: Evan Rachel Wood as Sophie-Anne, the Vampire Queen of Louisiana; Lindsay Pulsipher as Crystal, a werepanther with ties to Jason; Dale Raoul as Maxine Fortenberry, Hoyt’s mother; and Adina Porter as Lettie Mae Thornton, Tara’s mother.

New cast regulars in season four include: Janina Gavankar as Luna, a shape-shifter who catches Sam’s eye, and Fiona Shaw as Marnie, a witch whose agenda threatens the vampire establishment.

Other new cast members include: Courtney Ford as lawyer Portia Bellefleur, Andy’s sister; Vedette Lim as Tara’s new friend Naomi; Alexandra Breckenridge as Katerina, one of Marnie’s followers; and Gary Cole as Earl Stackhouse.

June’s episode:
Episode #37: “She’s Not There”
Debut: SUNDAY, JUNE 26 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)
Other HBO playdates: June 26 (11:00 p.m.), 28 (11:30 p.m.) and 29 (10:00 p.m.), and July 2 (11:15 p.m.) and 14 (8:00 p.m.)
HBO2 playdates: June 27 (9:00 p.m.) and 30 (9:00 p.m.), and July 1 (midnight) and 3 (2:00 p.m.)
Sookie (Anna Paquin) journeys away from Bon Temps; Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) and Bill (Stephen Moyer) try to win back the human public; Jason (Ryan Kwanten) learns that no good deed goes unpunished; Tara (Rutina Wesley) finds refuge in close quarters; Sam (Sam Trammell) bonds with his own; Hoyt (Jim Parrack) and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) debate the dinner menu; Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) urges Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) to join a coven; and Terry (Todd Lowe) tries to alleviate Arlene’s (Carrie Preston) fears about the baby.
Written by Alexander Woo; directed by Michael Lehmann.

I really hope they don't have three men fighting for Sookie. I find her so unlikable.

All the female leads in these Vampire Series are unlikeable.. I can't stand Bella, Elena, or Sookie..and for the life of me, I can't understand why men are fighting over these women. They try to portray them as strong women, but I always find them dense..Elena was a little better this past season, but I enjoyed Katherine better...The only thing the woman really has going for them, is they have descent chemistry with the male leads... :ermm:

I love the books and like the show. I think often my love of the books prevents me from really loving the show...but I do like it.

Books are always better imo.

But I am a worm.

ITA Daytime! I hate Bella from the Twilight Series. I don't get why anyone would want her. I think the blame mostly goes to the actress on that series. Someone needs to teach Ms. Kristen Stewart how to act. I did like Buffy from the Vampire Slayer series, lol.

With regards to Sookie, I can't stand her because I tend to like empowered women. She's just a pathetic character. Not to mention an annoying twit with no personality. She always needs a man to save her and when she's not needing to be saved she's being sanctimonious. She's a stereotypical dumb blond who is overly emotional and preachy.

I much prefer Pam, Lorena, and Maryanne. These women have depth and complexities and I can relate to their struggles much easily.

I have to disagree about Sookie. I don't think she ever HAS to have a man save her. I think as the series has progressed, we've seen that she is actually a lot more tough than people give her credit for. Granted she has been put in quite a few situations where she needs help I also think she's definitely held her own on plenty of occasions. She never goes down without a fight.

Buffy is the only female lead in a vamp series that I actually like, I just tolerate the rest. I liked Sookie the first few episodes, but then went south. Shes tolerated and that's about it for me. Sometimes I feel she's a little dense... I think it's the writing though.. I just found book Sookie a lot stronger. Anyway I can't wait for June 26, the spoilers and sneak peaks has my mouth watering. :D


Thanks Kenny! :wub:

True Blood season 4 Fairies will be sinister and badass

Many fans have made it very clear that they are not thrilled with the look and atmosphere of Fairy Land. This has not gone unnoticed and True Blood writer Brian Buckner addresses the issue in his commentary on the season 3 DVD.

Bruckner comments on episode 7 together with Anna Paquin and Joe Manganiello. During the hospital scene where Sookie visits Fairy Land he says:

“Let me address one thing and it’s an interesting phenomena on the show because in the age of the internet it’s very easy to find out what your audience thinks about everything. People were sort of unanimously not thrilled with Fairy Land, but I do want to say that this isn’t actually Fairy Land. It’s a hallucinatory dream and it’s what Fairies are presenting about themselves to try to get Sookie to come with them. So think of it as a trap and the real Fairy is going to be something very very different and more sinister. I promise.”

Joe Manganiello: “Sinister Fairies?”

Buckner: “Oh yes. Badass.”

Joe: “I didn’t know this was a trap. I thought that all Fairies lived in Lilith Fair or something.”

That doesn't surprise me and I'm glad they going that direction. I think there have been subtle hints that this new fairy world could be too good to be true, or that there are some ulterior motives at hand. There has been plenty of fairy mythology in other pieces of literature where fairies are not always as innocent as they seem or should be.

LOL to Joe's remark about fairies and Lilith Fair!

Interesting.. Well watching the first three minutes, you can actually see something is not right.. Sookie's grandfather wasn't even aware he had been in fairy land 20 years. I can't wait to see how all this plays out, so much stuff going on this season.. 25 more days!!!!! :D


Thanks Kenny! :)

Bring on Sookie/Eric. My absolute favorite book out of all of them. This sound like it's going to be a really good season. Season 3 was a total letdown, imo.
