Michael Ausiello at TVLine has just announced that Allan Hyde, Godric will be in Season 4. Since Godric succum to the rays of the sun in Season 2, we’re guessing he will be in a flashback, but who knows, since Denis O’Hare is expected to return from the cement, maybe they will find a way to make Godric also return.
Here’s what he has to say about it:
You already know that True Blood‘s upcoming fourth season will feature witches, werewolves and more Nan Flannigan. But here’s what I’m fairly certain you don’t know: It’ll also mark the return of vampire legend Godric!
Allan Hyde will reprise his role as Eric’s late, forever young-looking maker when the HBO drama resumes this summer. The duration and exact timing of his stint are unknown. It’s also unclear what form the onetime vampire sheriff of Area 9 will take given that he succumbed to the worst sunburn in history during season 2. (He returned briefly from the great beyond in the season 3 finale to deliver a message to Eric.)
Alan Ball isn’t offering too many clues, except to say that fans will see “a different side of Godric.”
