Two new faces are set to come on board True Blood Season 6.

Jurnee Smollett (pictured, Friday Night Lights) has been cast as a series regular, Deadline reports, and will portray the new character of Nicole Wright, described as someone unconcerned with money and focused on the common good.

Amelia Rose Blaire, meanwhile, will come on board as Willa Burrell, the daughter of Arliss Howard's Governor Truman Burrell and someone who has long clashed with her dad over vampire rights. Her role is recurring.

No premiere date has been set yet, but look for True Blood to return in June.

True Blood Quotes

Eric Northman is nothing if he is not pure fucking sex on a throne.

I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago
