The popular horror, fantasy series ended only six years ago but HBO believes it is time to bring it back with some new faces, Deadline reports.
True Blood was based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries series of books by Charlaine Harris. It featured Anna Paquin as Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic whose Louisiana town is home to vampires, werewolves, witches and all manner of supernatural beings. The series also starred Stephen Moyer as her vampire love interest, Bill Compton. Paquin and Moyer later married in real-life in 2010.
The series also starred Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Chris Bauer, Nelsan Ellis, Jim Parrack and Carrie Preston as reoccuring characters.
True Blood ran for seven seasons, from 2008 to 2014.
For the new series, HBO has brought back original series creator Alan Ball as an executive producer but signed Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Riverdale creator) and Jami O’Brien (NOS4A2 creator) to write the pilot and produce the series.
HBO hasn’t offered any news on what changes, if any, will be involved with the revamp nor a release date.
