Mark Hudis, True Blood’s New Head Provides True Blood Season 6 Hints

s6spoilersAs 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:

Mark Hudis, new showrunner of True Blood

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?
