True Blood has already announced that Amelia Rose Blaire will be a series regular for True Blood Season 7. Now, two more cast members have also now been announced as being promoted to season regulars.
Formerly considered as recurring actors from season 6, Karolina Wydra, who played Violet and Luke Grimes, who played James, will also become series regulars in season 7.
Karolina appeared as the vampire Violet Mazurski in season 6 and became Jason’s (Ryan Kwanten) lover over the course of the season. James met Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) at Vamp Camp and the two quickly became lovers.
This means that while several cast members met the “true death in Season 6, the cast will still be a large one when the series returns next year. Regardless, True Blood showrunner Brian Buckner has revealed in interviews that the show will be getting back to its roots in season 7 with most of the action being in Bon Temps.
Production on season 7 of True Blood is scheduled for December 2013. Season 7 will premiere in 2014, though a specific date has not yet been set.
