Preston poses at premiere for fifth season of "True Blood" at the Cinerama Dome in Los AngelesTrue Blood’s Carrie Preston was interviewed by the Huffington Post today and she shared a bit about True Blood’s upcoming  season 6, as follows:


You’re still on “True Blood,” too. Do you get recognized for different shows depending on which coast you’re on?
Yes, I do. Although, It’s not coastal per se, but I play this little game with myself when someone comes up and says, “Oh, I love you on the show.” I play a little game and I say, “‘Good Wife’?” And they’ll go, “Yeah, ‘Good Wife.’ What else would I be talking about?” Or I’ll say, “‘True Blood’?” “Totally, ‘True Blood.’ What else?” And then sometimes people will say both, but there’s definitely types there. Sometimes I’m wrong, but a lot of times I’m right. [Laughs.]

What can you tell me about the next season of “True Blood”? Probably nothing, but I have to ask.
I know you do. We have a new showrunner because Alan Ball is not running the show anymore. Mark Hudis, who is one of our writers, is our new showrunner. We also have a couple of new writers, so it’s interesting. It still has the flavor of “True Blood,” as it always will, but it does have something — a little spring in its step in an interesting way, I think. Everybody is finding the new chemistry between all of that and all those players. And of course, with “True Blood,” there’s always still a million new characters that are being introduced. I don’t know how they keep that many balls in the air and continue to juggle, but they do.


Carrie also talks about her appearance on The Good Wife and Person of Interest, which you can read about by going here.

    Sounds like there are some interesting new elements in Season 6 of TB. At least that’s the impression I got. I must say I’m not thrilled by the multitude of characters. Fewer would be the way I’d like to see the show go.

    I’m a big Person of Interest fan, and I’ve so enjoyed Carrie’s appearances on the show. Good to know that there is another one to look forward to.

    I’m not surprised there will be new characters. CH always introduces new characters in the books, and TB follows that trend. It’s impossible to have new conflicts, new relationships, or new plotlines in this type of world w/o bringing in new players to disturb the status quo. Most of them will get killed off by the end of the season, but a few may stick around like always and become a part of Sookie’s life. Personally, I’m looking forward to meeting more of Sookie’s fae family, and also to whatever war will be happening. It’s nice to hear that the show has new energy and is not getting stale for the actors.
