The sixth season HBO’s ‘True Blood‘ has been marked for a June 16th premiere date with FOXTEL channel ‘Showtime’ fast-tracking the series to Australian screens for a same-date showing.
Fans can expect only 10 episodes this season – 2 short of the shows normal length which is due to lead star Anna Paquin giving birth to twins last September. This season will also be the first without True Blood creator and head writer Alan Ball, who announced that he will be stepping back from his usual duties and moving to an advisory role with the show.
This sixth season will continue on from last season’s cliff-hanger where a blood covered Bill (inhabited by the vampire god Lilith) seeks out Sookie and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard)
