True Blood Season 6 Scoop: What's Ahead?

by at . Comments

That was quite the way for Alan Ball to go out.

Following a Season 5 finale that transformed Bill into a supernatural being, squeezed out four faerie children for Andy and teased the impending introduction of Warlow, the True Blood showrunner has stepped aside. He won't be leading the writing team next summer.

But Ball will still be around, as evidenced by an interview he gave TV Guide in which he teased a number of developments to come on Season 6. To wit...

True Blood Finale Scene

Season 6 will only be comprised of 10 episodes.

Yes, Bill will be "really evil," with his upcoming story based around questions such as: Is he going to come up with his own master plan? What kind of battle will the humans wage against him?

We will meet Warlow, who may be someone with whom viewers are already familiar. Teases Ball: "There will also be some other characters maybe who we know and love who are pursuing a less than generous agenda."

Alcide may finish that bedroom session with Sookie after all, or at least may still hope to.

The presence of Andy's children will "complicate" things for him. The non-human kids may also age rapidly.

Read the full interview with Ball and then sound off: What are you most looking forward to on Season 6?

10 episodes might be a good thing. Hopefully the stories will be tighter. I'm actually looking forward to how Evil Bill plays out, and who Warlow is. Don't care about Terry or Andy, but I have a feeling Andy's thing will tie into the Warlow thing. Does anybody remember Nigel the baby eater? Hint Hint.
