at . Comments

It looks like True Blood Season 6 will continue to delve into the family of Alcide Herveaux.

Robert Patrick - who debuted on True Blood Season 5 and will soon be coming off the short-lived Last Resort on ABC - has been upgraded to series regular by HBO. Deadline has confirmed the veteran actor will reprise the role of Alcide's father this summer.

Robert Patrick on True Blood

Patrick appeared in three episodes last year, culminating his arc in a father/son reunion that saw the werewolves work together and establish Alcide as the leader of his pack.

Forever known for his role in Terminator 2, Patrick will next be seen on the big screen on Gangster Squad.

This is great! I liked Alcide's dad!


Oh great! Another season of pussy ass Weres getting their asses kicked by vampires and everyone else. Who doesn't want to see Weres being the vampire's little whipped bitches?


Love that Robert Patrick will be returning as Jackson Hevereaux!!!
Love him/his character, would love to see him paired with Martha
Emma's grandma~they would make a wonderful pair.
