True Blood’s showrunner Alan Ball, has been talking to Sci Fi Wire and had plenty to say regarding season two of the HBO vampire series.
“Sookie [Anna Paquin] and Bill [Stephen Moyer] will go to Dallas to help find a missing vampire who is the sheriff of the Dallas area,” Ball said. “And Jason [Ryan Kwanten] is going to become involved in the Fellowship of the Sun Church in a way that is really surprising.” Ball finished by saying this about the upcoming season: “There’s a very interesting relationship in the show between Rev Steve Newlin of the Fellowship of the Sun Church and his wife, Sarah [Anna Camp], and Jason, that just took on its own life as we were shooting, and it’s hilarious. I can’t get enough of the Newlins and Jason together.”
Speaking about the future of the series, Ball maintained that it would continue to focus on the “terrors of intimacy”. Continuing in this vein he said: “Everything gets more intense. It’s a lot scarier. It’s sexier. It’s just really, really fun. I feel like each season is a novel, and the episodes are just chapters. Especially the way our show is. The episodes are not self-contained. You know, you gotta be involved in the story, and you gotta know what’s going on.”
True Blood season two premieres on 14 June 2009 and is reportedly based on Charlaine Harris’s second novel in the series Living Dead In Dallas.
