Joe Manganiello: Promoted to Series Regular on True BloodMatt Richenthal at .
There may be a few deaths ahead on True Blood, but don't expect Alcide Herveaux to be one of them.
The series announced today that Joe Manganiello has been promoted to series regular. He'll definitely be back for season four of the show.
This move mirrors the character's status in Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse novels, as Alcide grows more and more involved in Sookie's life as those books continue.
