Mark Hudis has received a promotion on True Blood.
As first reported by Deadline, the co-executive producer will step up and take over the HBO series once Alan Ball departs following season five, assuming True Blood is picked up for a sixth season, that is.
Ball announced in late February that season five would be his last.
Hudis has been with the series for two seasons and also signed a developmental deal with HBO.
True Blood, meanwhile, returns on June 10 and you can catch up on True Blood Season 4 in our episode guide section.
