It's a few months away but some more news has emerged as True Blood begins filming it's sixth season.
The first two episodes of the new season have the titles of Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood and Here Comes The Sun and between Joe Manganiello having to get a new haircut for Alcide and Janina Gavankar coming to film more scenes as Luna, it seems that we'll be getting a slew of new characters. One of them being a governor of Louisiana named Creighton Burrell with actor Arliss Howard being made a regular for the new season. Robert Patrick's Jackson Herveaux will also be a regular in the new season as well as Rutgar Hauer (Macklyn) and Rob Kazinsky (Ben) too. Another character being added to the roster is Nicole Janssen, an altruistic twenty something girl.
Meanwhile the consequences of Bill's conversion to being Lilith's ultimate disciple will be a big thing in the new season. New showrunner Mark Hudis has promised that Bill this year will have more bite to him and that both Sookie and Jason will be occupied this season as they search for Warlow - the vampire promised to the former. Hudis also mentioned that he plans to keep the action more centred in Bon Temps this season as well, which undoubtedly should please many viewers.
True Blood's sixth season will air on HBO from June 2013, while UK viewers can watch the fifth season again on SkyAtlantic, Mondays at 11pm from January 21st.
