True Blood Season 6 Goes Back to It’s Roots:

Comic Con 2013 Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse in True Blood Season 6)With Season 5 of HBO’s favorite vampire series, True Blood, fans were beginning to question how long the show would last. The story lines were complicated and with so many new characters arriving all the time, it seemed many fans were left scratching their heads in bewilderment.

Well, it seems that Brian Buckner has heard everyone’s pleas to return to the golden age of True Blood Season 1 and had the following to say at Comic-Con this weekend:

I feel like this show is ultimately about the relationships between vampires and humans and it’s about this town, and I actually want to bring it in. My hope is to get all these people we love living under the umbrella of one story and one threat.

This one comment bought cheers from the True Blood audience. But wait, there’s more! When asked about the True Blood Season 6 finale, he reiterated his stance on the show:

You’re going to feel that the show is going to return back to its roots and be about this gang of people living in Bon Temps. We’re going to try and condense the number of stories we’re telling and really make this feel like we’re going home.

With so many fans proclaiming that True Blood Season 6 is fast becoming the show’s best season yet, it seems that Brian Buckner is right on the money!

    Thank you Brian Buckner for reining in the show! I am thoroughly enjoying this fantastic season six with its cohesive & often overlapping (not isolated) story lines reminiscent of the very first seasons. We’re getting reacquainted with our town’s people remembering why we grew to like them in the first place. Love the emphasis on vampires! And Bill’s transformation recalls the attraction of Steven Moyer’s character from the series premier episode that hooked me on the show to begin with (and I’m usually team Eric!) Hope you are still in charge for season 7!

    I think it is terrible, you are straying so far off the books that I do not want to watch it anymore. I don’t understand what is even going on anymore.
