    Never doubted it for a minute! This show ROCKS! Congrats to Alan Ball and his team of writers and the wonderful True Blood cast that pulls this all together. And, of course, to Charlaine Harris for creating the world of Sookie Stackhouse!

    Agree. Instead of June it should come out on January (the latest) which means they should be recording it already.

    Shadaliza Reply:

    They finished shooting season 2 in July. It takes about 6 months to shoot the season. June 2010 is the earliest possible.
    I prefer quality over a hasty job.

    Exactly. If it takes them 6 months to shoot, they can be done shooting by January/February.

    What am I supposed to do in the meantime. Trueblood is like heroine and when you need a fix, you need a fix. I normally record each episode and then watch it three or four times. I have season one on DVD and can’t wait until season two is released on DVD. Keep up the good work, this series is a knock out!!

    [Reply]

  24. Freddie says:

    I’m never sure about HBO’s judgement and the only reason I still pay for their programming is TRUE BLOOD… it’s been their saving grace since they cancelled previous programs out of the blue like ROME, DEADWOOD, and CARNIVAL. Don’t ever take for granted that they are in tune to their viewers’ choices. Thank goodness, so far they’ve gotten this one right!!!!!

    Kudos to HBO!My husband turned me on to True Blood,I saw one episode of season 1 and was hooked ever since! The story lines are captivating,creative and they even threw in some morbid humor…I love it!! I really love Tara’s personality and what she brings to the show,she’s spunky,intelligent and beautiful,way to go!Looking forward to many,many more seasons!

    [Reply]

  27. Steven says:

    This is the most intense and most creative show I’ve ever seen. The one today in which the “zombies” have Sam holed up in his restaurant was in some ways almost satirical of the Night of the Living dead movies.

  28. Velvet says:

    THANK GOODNESS!!! I’m so addicted to this show. I work in a small southern town like Bon Temps as a waitress and I have never had a show I could relate to as much as this one. Well I mean not the whole vampire thing…although you never know….Anyways…congrats Alan Ball and thank you for the amazing work you do.

    2010? I love this show!!! It keeps you on the edge, but to wait that long for a new season?! Bummer… Guess I’ll have to buy the previous seasons to keep me going with the series. Wonder how many seasons there will be? Sure beats reality shows. Takes your mind off the real world for a little while. What a relief! TRUE BLOOD is refreshing, edgy entertainment.

    Has anyone realized this is August, 2009 and they are talking about a 2010 series premiere date? Even if it’s in January that’s a 6-month wait at the least! I don’t know about anybody else, but that is a long time. What’s up with that?

    In June of next year TB will Again be competing with Twilight!!
    That’s when Eclipse the third book (and MY Fave out of the series)
    will be out at theaters. As far as I’m concerned there Is NO comparison…TB is Much better!!!The writing is better and it just goes for the jugular!! It’s provacative,dark,scary and sexy. As for the adult content its HBO what did you expect?? Twilight is much more tame by comparison…even though the final book Breaking Dawn is probably more intense for its core audience…if you have read it you know what I mean. True Blood is better However Twilight does have its good points.

    [Reply]

  46. Tony says:

    I wanted to also say that I like the vampires of Bon Temps better than the vamps in Forks,WA. I like Bill and Sookie. I like Sam Merlotte the best I think because he seems to be the most compassiionate and down-to-earth person there..he’s funny,too! Jason is funny but he’s far too ignorant i guess being so clueless makes him more funny and likable.I like Bill but he can be mean,controlling,manipulative and moody!! He doesnt apologize to Sookie after their big fight he just says he loves her and cannot lose her. I don’t think Edward Cullen would ever talk to Bella Swan that way….even when he’s angry with her
    in book 3 she runs off to see Jacob Black even though she said she wouldnt. Edward evewn catches her making out with Jacob!! He’s angry and hurt but he knows that Bella must choose and so he speaks kindly to her even though he’s deeply hurt by her…Do you think Bill
    Compton would ever behave that way!!! He yelled at her like a dog when she took Jessica home to her parents house
    Anyway, TB IS Better! I think that te first Twilight book Is a good read.

I”M glad to see that there is so many people who love it to. we want more & more dont stop making them

  49. vamplover says:

    I hope the season finale wraps up the MaryAnne/Tara/Eggs storyline. While watching the Dallas episodes (Godric, Eric), that was so boring to come back to that. I want more vampire air time, Bill & Sookie, and ESPECIALLY Eric! I agree, it’s going to be a long winter!!

    [Reply]

  50. Bianca says:

    I’m so excited for season three. I’m a little disapointed by the ending of season two so I’m looking forward to not seeing the awful Maryann storyline! I CAN NOT wait to see who they cast as my beloved Alcide! I’m also curious as to how Alan Ball is going to create the werewolves.. I hope he isn’t going to use real wolves like he does the shifter animals. June 2010 is wayyy to far!!

    [Reply]

    Rebekah Reply:

    I can’t wait to see who they choose for Alcide. Check out Henry Cavill, he’s on the Tudors which is about to be over next season. I think he looks like he could handle that part pretty well!

    Lisa Reply:

    I don’t think it was Eric at all, and I don’t think it had anything to do with the queen. It would just be too obvious. I think that Eric did want Bill out of the picture so he called Lorena. I think Lorena either did it herself or she had another vamp do it for her. Eric already knew that Bill was in love with Sookie and once he got reaffirmation from Sophie Anne, he decided to call Lorena because he knew her crazy ass would try to get him back.

    It’ll be in June 2010 and hopefully, if they’re allowed (that is: if there’s enough funding) to translate all the books into seasons, we’ll see all the actors aging like mad! So, e.g. if Bill is app. 32 now, he’ll be 44 at the end of the line… ever seen a vampire age?? Well at this rate -one season per year- we could get so damn lucky ;D

    You don’t have to wait a whole year to watch season 3! Do you guys ever read Wikipedia? “It premiered on September 7, 2008. The show’s second 12-episode season premiered on June 14, 2009. On July 30, 2009, HBO confirmed that a third season of True Blood will be released in the summer of 2010. Alan Ball has said that he plans to start shooting the third season before Christmas 2009.”

    [Reply]

    Lisa Reply:

    They started shooting season 2 in December also. We won’t be waiting a year, but we will be waiting 9-10 months as it will most likely start in June or July again. So, to say that we’re waiting a year would be pretty accurate, unless you just want to take that 1 year literally…geeze

    I am hooked on True Blood! I am so disappointed that we have to wait till May or June of 2010 to find out what happened to Bill. I’m sure it was Eric who kidnapped Bill. Just like any other GREAT series, they leave you salivating, waiting to find out what happens in the next episode. I watch True Blood EVERY time it comes on HBO and I will continue to watch as long as the series airs. I hope the “powers that be” will see that True Blood is a hit series with close to 4 million viewers and keep this show airing FOREVER!!! True Blood rocks and I am a True Blood lover for LIFE!!!

    Read the books until the next season airs. It will help and make the waiting eaiser!! And for everyone who is wondering who took Bill, if they really cannot wait till the next season comes out, read the books. They are really good and then can it will be pretty obvious who took Bill.

  72. Jeannet says:

    Oh come on… even waiting for 2 months before the story continues would kill most of us! ;D
    As I said in my reply to Jay’s comment (Shadaliza beat me to it just a minute ahead haha), what worries me is the time span for a different reason. Yes, I’m hooked too (over here in Holland…), but I’m concerned that the series will lose it’s charm as the actors grow older every year… To my recollection, vampires don’t age… bet they will if the makers shoot 1 season per year! Seems a bit unwise to me… but then, I’m not the producer.
    (mesmerizing here: e.g. Eric… he’s in his twenties in the story, right? So, let’s say he’s around 28 there (I don’t exactly recall the age he was turned vampire), in reality he’s 33 yrs old… by the time all of Charlaine Harris’ books are filmed, he’ll be 43 yrs old, playing a 28 yrs old vampire… appealing or appalling?)
    Wishing you all the best this coming year… (we will all need it!)

    Jeannet Reply:

    Well, some people who have subscribed to digital TV have recently seen a new channel being added: foxlife… Season 1 is being played as we speak, today will be the 2nd episode I think. But national and commercial channels will a] not have the funding to buy True Blood (look at the ‘crap’ (excuse my ‘french’ haha) and reruns they’re broadcasting now… worthless!) and b] will probably evaluate True Blood to be too much for their audience. Calvinistic as a lot of Dutch still are, there would definitely be a lot of protest and you and I (and an increasing number of Dutch True Blood Addicts (LOL)) would have to sit anxiously waiting for the government to actually put a ban on it. Dutch Democracy…

    There was a time when there was too much liberty on Dutch television, I didn’t realize that things have turned around so much. I do occasionally watch Dutch tv, but I haven’t lived in Holland since 1995. Must be the Balkenende dictatuur.

    Jeannet Reply:

    Must be indeed… I’m still hoping though that a few channels (Veronica or SBS6/RTL5) will be interested in showing it; late-night television probably.

    (Mooi toch, twee Nederlanders die zover uit elkaar wonen dan toch even samen kunnen kletsen over deze serie… prachtig heh, dat internet! Groetjes en succes daar in de VS!)

    I read on the HBO site that Season 3 would be released in June 2010. Are they crazy? I got frustrated and ordered the set of books. By summer 2010, I’ll be so disgusted with the delay that I will probably refuse to watch.

    People have basically not changed their viewing habits even though the seasons seem haphazard now. The longest wait you should put a viewer through is 3 months like what used to take place during the summer. Also shows used to have a proper finale.

    I am truly outdone with them. They better get to filming. What is this business about trying to decide if they were going to continue it while leaving Season 2 with a cliffhanger?

    I swear this is why I don’t even bother to get involved in the new shows because they seem to have no respect whatsoever for the viewing audience.

    as far as bills kidnapper goes it makes since that it could be lorena but im sure its someone we havent seen yet on the series. I heard that in the books its the king but the series dont really follow the books from what ive heard since i wont start reading the books until next week. Eric does kinda have a motive but if he wants sookie to willing give herself to him he wouldnt do that shes to kind hearted. the way the plots twist and the cliffhangers that end the shows im sure bills abducter is a new face. And season 3 is going to show werewolves (finally) and give some insight to sookies supernatural abilities. And im pretty sure that eric is going to turn either lafeyette or sookie. And my question to anyone that can answer would be that if sookie is turned can she still read minds or would she be some kind of hybrid vampire, well if she could still read minds that would make her hybrid but you know what i mean. Also they guy that plays Jason is an awesome actor, in real life he speaks with a british accent and he does a great job of immitating the country boy accent.

    I can’t wait until season 3. Book 3 is my favorite book out of the series. I really can’t wait to see who they choose to be Alcide ( my favorite character and the love of my life) for season 3. I am not kidding, he is my dream man. Nonetheless, reading the books and rewatching season 1 is keeping me moderately sane. But waiting a year is crazy, but I am so happy filming is going to start in a couple of months. This show is the best show on tv, it is great for both adult men and women (who are not prudes). This show rocks indeed!

    The third season is not going to start until June 2010. ((OH COME ON)) I’ve watched season one and two a handful of times already and went and bought and read all the books. My Sunday’s are just not the same without the True Blood Crew. I MISS THEM ALL. None of the other shows can even come close to filling in the time gap. ((THIS JUST ISN”T RIGHT)) They need to come up with some sort of related show for the between season gap. True Blood is by far the best.

    Season 1 was a very good well tought season, then season 2 came out, just to much “magic” but ig uess HBO has their own reason why they had to spoil sucha good tv program like that, well looking forward to S 3 and se if its better then s2, but to be honest, they cant do much worse then s2, ans why in the world would godrik die the 2 thousand year vampire, he must be faster the lightning, redicoulus, May the blod pour in ur veins.

    [Reply]

    Catfyre34 Reply:

    In the book he chose to die because he couldn’t stop himself from hurting people and his victims were adolescent boys. He was feeling remorse but didn’t think he could control himself to not do it anymore. (Which I agree, it kind of sucked because I think that Charlaine could have used his character longer than she did.) He didn’t have that big a part in the book, but both in the book and the show, it was his choice. He wanted to die. That’s why at the end of the episode where he burns, Sookie makes a comment about how going to the Fellowship wasn’t the best idea and he said something along the lines that he thought it would somehow make it right. I was kind of upset because I liked Godric in the show and I hope that they do some flashbacks or something but it’s unlikely. As for the magic complaint, read the books. There is magic a-plenty all over it. If you don’t like that then you probably aren’t going to like later seasons since she meets some very magical creatures who stick around. I won’t spoil it for anyone who hasn’t read them yet, but do :)

  130. Catfyre34 says:

    I try to leave out spoilers from the book series but they may occasionally pop in there. If you don’t want to know anything and want to read the books, then maybe don’t read what I’m about to say next. With that out of the way:

    I do love True Blood and at first I was skeptical because I have been reading the books for years. I do agree with a previous poster that I wish they would stick closer to the books. Sookie’s character (meaning her personality) is a lot tougher in the books, which I prefer. Eric is much more flamboyant and I’ve never really liked Bill from the beginning. . . there seemed to be something he was hiding and he was too dark and drab for me. As for who kidnapped Bill in the tv series, it’s anyone’s guess because they’ve thrown curveballs before. It may be completely different than in the books but remember his maker’s last words in the show “I really wish you hadn’t said that…” Hint from the show’s writers maybe?

    It’s unlikely that it was Eric, if the show is following the books to some extent, (which they are) because he has vested interest in Sookie and taking Bill outright like that would just be stupid, which Eric isn’t. As Eric has said before “What’s in it for me?” He’s always looking out for his best interests.

    Read the books. I guarantee that if you like the show, you’ll love them! Besides, it’s fun being able to point out differences in the show and the book. I like that the show has given minor characters from the books more prominent rolls, though. There are some characters that have more roles in the books that aren’t getting enough air time (in my opinion) But if you want to know who they are, again read the books.

    As far as Season 2, I’m pretty certain that the dvd set isn’t out yet so unless you can find the episodes online somehow, or if a friend has recorded it, your SOL for now, unfortunately. I liked season 1 but I love season 2. You get a better sense of each character and their personalities now that it’s moved into the second season and hey, Eric’s haircut…yum! Although, I think I’ve seen enough of Anna’s boobs, but that’s just me. Gotta love HBO :)
