Great news to all True Blood fans, this news will make you watch HBO again.
True Blood Season 3 starts this July 19 at HBO/ HBO HD with an action pack of 12 episodes and as of press time, True Blood has received 5 Emmy nominations, including "Outstanding Drama Series" for the upcoming 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards.
In this new season, Sookie Stackhouse begins her desperate and frantic search for the whereabouts of her vampire boyfriend, Bill Compton, who mysteriously disappeared just after proposing to her during a romantic date at the end of the last season. Meanwhile, the townspeople of Bon Temps face new threats that make their previous problems of facing the Maenads’ reign of terror seem tame by comparison. (more below)
Created and produced by Alan Ball who also produced the HBO Original Series Six Feet Under, and based on the best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris, TRUE BLOOD takes place in the not-too-distant future, when vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. The series follows the romance between waitress Sookie Stackhouse, played by Anna Paquin who won a Golden Globe for her role, and her boyfriend, 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton, played by her real-life fiancÈ, Stephen Moyer.
