As most know, Mark Hudis, one of the writers on True Blood is now taking over as the show’s head starting this season. This came about because of Alan Ball’s departure from the series to make his new series Banshee which premieres tomorrow night on Cinemax.
Mark Hudis is a young, but exceptional part of the True Blood family and his alma mater, Haverford College featured him in their Fall 2012 magazine.
This one particular section of the article caught my eye because it generously gives us some hints about what we can expect in Season 6:
Season five ended with our normally human-friendly vampire here Bill Compton drinking the blood of vampire savior Lilith, exploding and reconstituting into something evil.
“Certainly he’s not going to be the Bill we know and love,” says Hudis of the character’s evolution next season. ” He’s going to have more bite, no pun intended.”What else can we expect? Following a season that dealt with more global issues (such as national vampire politics), Hudis wants to bring the action back to Bon Temps, the small Louisiana town that is home to the show’s central characters, and focus on telling fewer stories with more characters (True Blood-ophiles might also be interested to know that Sookie and Jason will spend the year searching for Warlow, the vampire that Sookie has been promised to.)
From the above, it appears that in Season 6, Bill might not be the evil vampire God we were lead to believe he had become when Season 5 ended. And, with the adventures of Sookie and Jason we will finally meet Warlow. I’m sure that most of the True Blood fans are happy to learn that the series plans to spend this season in Ben Temps and have fewer story-lines. However, the one thing I worry about is when Mark says above that there will be “more characters.” Do we really need more characters to follow?

The Stake House has the solution to all your vamper problems: silver nail polish, pure all-wood vampire stakes, silver netting, chains to restrain vampires, garlic, silver air spray and UV house paint.
The Stake House
To introduce the Stake House in the script, writer Mark Hudis wrote: “Vampires not being neighborly? You’ve come to the right place!”
The Stake House clerk is played wonderfully well by Todd Giebenhain. This is the casting call he responded to:
[CLERK] 30s to 40s. The kind of guy who buys pork rinds, he lives in a trailer and works at the Stake House, a home protection store that sells weapons designed to hurt vampires.
Writer Mark Hudis had a very specific guy in mind when he described the Stake House clerk in the script: “Ever wonder who buys pork rinds? Now you know.”

We’re all hoping that True Blood gets renewed for many seasons to come and it’s comforting to know that those future seasons of the show will include good leadership.
It’s just been announced by TV Guide that True Blood will be in familiar hands if it gets renewed for a sixth season. Co-executive producer Mark Hudis will succeed Alan Ball as showrunner.
As Deadline.com first reported, Hudis signed an overall deal with HBO that would see him promoted to executive producer and showrunner for the potential Season 6. His deal also includes the possibility of developing new series. Hudis, whose other credits include Nurse Jackie and That ’70s Show, joined True Blood in Season 4.
In February, Ball announced that he would only continue on True Blood in a supervisory role if the show was renewed. Ball, who continued to run the HBO series during its upcoming fifth season, is also developing Banshee at Cinemax.
