Brian Buckner Announces Death of Major True Blood Character!

Season 6 Gears Up For a Major Shake up:

Michael McMillian stars as Rev. Steven Newlin in Season 6 of HBO's True Blood

Recently Brian Buckner told Rolling Stone Magazine that there would definitely be the death of a major True Blood character in upcoming Season 6 of the HBO vampire series.

This death will not only shock the fans, but the regular cast of True Blood were left reeling when they read the script. Todd Lowe (Terry Bellefleur) had the following to say to

“There is a major death. It kind of shocked us at the table read, and is a very emotional moment. It was just a big surprise. I had gotten the script late and hadn’t looked into it. So I was kind of like, ‘Oh! Wow! That’s different.’ It saddened a lot of people.”

Well, if this is the case, now it’s time for a quick survey!

Who do you think will die in Season 6 of True Blood? And how major, do you think that death will be? Sookie (Anna Paquin), Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) or Bill/Billith (Stephen Moyer)? Or by major does Brian Buckner mean the major secondary characters? i.e. Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), Tara (Rutina Wesley), Alcide (Joe Manganiello), Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten), Rev. Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) etc.

Let us know what you think by commenting below.

I’ll get things started by saying, personally, I don’t think it will be one of the holy trinity (Sookie, Eric or Bill), but I DO think a major secondary character will bite the dust. If I had to pick a name, my bets are on Tara Thornton unfortunately!

    I’m thinking Jason.

    • Oh, wouldn’t that be horrible 🙁 I couldn’t imagine Bon Temps without Jason!

    Luna in episode 1. Later in the Season Lafayette. Speculating of course.

    • I don’t think Luna was who Buckner was referring to. And Lafayette seems to be a hot fave for dying, I guess that’s because of the books and not because we don’t like him! 😉
