lots of info here.. again no freaking out..  ;)

Bill has just slain a greedy human and a menacing vamp in short order, a scene so gory it required the biggest blood-spew in the series’ special-effects repertoire: the “Bellagio,” cheekily named after the famous dancing fountains in Las Vegas. And it looks as if things will get even messier for Bill in Season 7 — both physically and emotionally.

"In the final season, we’re telling a more personal story," says executive producer Brian Buckner, who took over after show creator Alan Ball and executive producer Mark Hudis left. “We’re going back to the original promise of the show: Bill and Sookie. People are going to be very surprised about the way we get there. There’s romance, sadness and resolution.”

There’s also Hep-V. The deadly virus is spreading, and hordes of starving, zombie like vamps are staggering toward Bon Temps. “Fans can expect a bloody barbecue with consequences in the season premiere,” teases Buckner. “Nobody’s safe.”

The sudden spike in the local mortality rate leaves the survivors fighting to save their town. “The stakes are the highest they’ve ever been,” says Anna Paquin, “Sookie gets into situations she’s going to need help getting out of.”

In the Season 6 finale, it looked as though she would never again see Bill as a savior. He and shape-shifting Bon Temps mayor Sam Merlotte devised a plan to pair up uninfected vamps with healthy humans in a symbiotic relationship for survival. But when Bill offered to be Sookie’s plus-one, she opted out and fell back into the arms of reliable, rock-solid werewolf Alcide Herveaux .

"No matter where Sookie was, Alcide came running. That’s just the kind of guy he is," Joe Manganiello says. “He’s a good, solid choice. But nobody stays happy for long in Bon Temps.” Despite all the danger, there’s no shortage of hot sex scenes this season. “There’s a profound lack of clothing,” says Buckner.

Season 6 of True Blood series came to an end Aug. 18, leaving the fate of many characters up in the air.

Pass season of True Blood had 12 episodes. Season 7 will follow in the footsteps of season six, with only 10 episodes.

It’s still has yet to be announce if Season 7 potentially, could be the the last season for True Blood.

Buckner told TV Guide, referring to the six-month time jump in the season finale. But with season 7 potentially being the last for “True Blood,” two weeks is not enough of a time span to conclude the series.

totally agree, I would not be happy, but Ok with True Blood wrapping up on a Season 8…

TVLINE | Are you looking at Season 7 as a reset of sorts for Bill?

Absolutely. We don’t want Bill to be an a—hole. Whereas the show that I love watching most right now, Breaking Bad, Walter White is on a downward trajectory with the consequences of his actions. The question we’re going to be asking this coming season is: Can Bill be forgiven? Because he made his intentions clear.

**One thing that I noticed – and I probably shouldn’t read as much as I’ve been reading, but I have been, in terms of audience reaction –

is the idea that characters can’t change. I will put to bed one thing for you: this idea that Lettie Mae is trying to poison Tara? It’s absurd. That is genuine. And I realize that on our show, because it’s been so incredibly plot-driven for the past several years, you insert a Big Bad and then have the characters react in the way we expect them to react. That’s sort of what’s been going on. When we let characters change, when we let the show be character-driven, I think people don’t know what to do with that. So with Lettie Mae and Tara, not to say that everything is going to go great, but the conflict is not going to be she’s poisoning Tara. By the same token, I think Bill doesn’t have a trick up his sleeve this time. I think he’s genuine. The real question is about forgiveness.

Good infor here folks…Lettie Mae and Tara scene was so welled played it was creepy a bit, but my mind frame is set on how True Blood is run, that I assume the worst..

2 things …. that folks had message me about

  1. Does Brian Buckner read what fans opinions are..and
  2. Did Lettie Mae have Hep V

things Bucky addresses…

Tara’s story-line is gonna be good next year…

Here’s the news you all been waiting for straight from the Bucky mouth…

TVLINE | Alexander Skarsgard — will he be back for Season 7?
I can tell you that Alexander Skarsgard is going to be a part of the next season of True Blood. He will be a series regular.

TVLINE | That will be a huge relief to fans.
I am aware! I’m not going to take Alex Skarsgard out of people’s living rooms

TVLINE | What kind of behind-the-scenes conversations took place prior to shooting?
Alex Skarsgard was the coolest camper in the world. There’s no conversation with him. He’s Swedish. They’re naked all the time. As a matter of fact, when I saw what we had on camera I sent him an email that said, “We’re going to lock picture. Are you OK with this?” He said, “No problemo.” That was the conversation. It couldn’t have been easier.

lots more go read they’re transcribing interview now

Happy?

True Blood closes its sixth season this Sunday with an hour that exec producer Brian Buckner says won’t be as bloody as last week’s Vamp Camp massacre.

Bill will recognize the error of his ways. ”The question going forward is, can he be forgiven?” Bucker says.

And yes, we will see Eric, who appeared to leave town after his Vamp Camp murder spree and feeding Jason his blood — for at least one scene. Buckner describes it as ”sexy and provocative,” adding, ”There’s definitely something for the ladies and the gay men. We might see a certain body part.” Sweet dreams, Jason?!

Of course, we’re not expecting a happy ending for everyone. Big picture, let’s not forget that we have vampires infected with Hep V and a continuing Tru Blood shortage. And on a personal note, now that Jessica is out of Vamp Camp, will she have to answer to Andy for killing three of his fairy daughters”

DAW: Well, that story is definitely not over. I remember when I first read that scene and what I was gonna do to those girls, my first thought was ohmygod, I don’t know how Jessica Hamby and Andy Bellefleur can be on the same show anymore. And I was almost certain that one of us was gonna be gone by the end of the year”. “So we’re definitely gonna have to see a little more on that story in the finale.”

Brian Buckner has just two words to describe the new season of True Blood: "Power corrupts."

But he wants us to know that everyone will get their just desserts: “Know this — all of those corrupted by power will see the error of their ways — one way or the other.”

Executive Producer Brian Buckner fills us in with some teases for True Blood Season 6.
Sookie Stackhouse has seen her ex Bill Compton transformed into…something after drinking a vial of gore that once flowed through ancient vampire god Lilith’s veins. Does that make him a god now?
"We prefer prophet. Bill’s more than just vampire and has powers we’ve never seen a vampire have,”
"Bill and Sookie are not going to get on so hot. But their not getting on is kind of awesome."
What’s not so awesome? Humans declare war on vampires, and Sookie has to contend with the mysterious Warlow, who killed her parents. “Warlow is the oldest vampire we’ve met,” Buckner says. “Killing the Stackhouses — that was nothin’!”
While battles have brought together Sookie and Eric before, this season “she’s looking to date somebody with whom she has more in common,” Buckner teases.

Eliza: We’re less than two months away from the new season of True Blood, so how about some scoop to celebrate?
 Well, can the possibility of death really be cause for celebration? Oh, all right. Take it away,
Joe Manganiello: “We’re in the middle of episode six, moving right along. Right now, we still have the big cast with the big table-reads, but pretty soon everybody’s going to start getting knocked off!” Yikes! As for the latest showrunner swap, Manganiello says, “I think with Brian Buckner replacing Alan Ball there’s maybe some hair being let down, maybe some ‘let’s get wild, let’s get crazy!’”

New Character S5_E1: Cat Ingersley

In the first episode of  Season 5, you will be introduced to new character Cat Ingersley.

The writer of the episode, Brian Buckner, took the name from some lovely ladies in our art department: Art Director Cat Smith and Production Designer Suzuki Ingerslev. This isn’t the first time a writer has taken liberties like this. Can you find any other names in our credits from previous seasons that may have inspired characters?

mmm who the hell will this be….?
