True Blood Season Five

It’s not a done deal yet, but looking very likely, and showrunner Alan Ball teases one of the storylines they’ll be exploring

“Everything ends, and there will be an end for me on this show at some point,” he’s reported as saying on TVLine . “But I don’t have any desire to leave because I’m having more fun than I have in my entire life.”

Ball also revealed that the writing staff is already breaking stories on the fifth season, which will “explore how one of the vampires was made,” as well as introduce new characters. Oh good grief, not more new characters. Dear god, no more shapeshifters please… What about trolls? You get every other kind of supernatural being on TV at the moment, but where are the trolls? Equal rights for trolls! (Well, it can’t get any sillier than those fairies, surely?)
