Joe Manganiello Named Season 4 Regular on True Blood

July 25, 2010 by  

True Blood fans have been hearing rumors about our favorite were becoming a regular, but is it true? Joe Manganiello, the hottest new addition to join True Blood, will indeed be a regular for Season 4.

Joe plays the sexy werewolf Alcide Herveaux, who is an integral part of the Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse Series. The One Tree Hill alum was only supposed to be in a handful of True Blood episodes, but he made such an impression on the show’s producers as well as fans that he was asked to join the storyline for Season 4.

True Blood has been nominated for an Emmy in the Best Drama category and has been picked up for a 4th season after only two episodes of the 3rd season aired.

There has been a lot of rumors flying that some of the original cast members may be killed off by end of the season. Many fans are hoping that Alan Ball will reveal any truth to these rumors at the SDCC 2010 panel (which he did not).

Though fans don’t know who may be eliminated at the end of the 3rd season, it’s comforting to know we’ll be seeing a lot more of Alcide Herveaux.

    Alcide is a constant in Sookie’s life in the books, even up to book 10. He’s in and out all the time but they never really seem to hook up in the books and there are a lot of reasons for this. Maybe they’ll hook up in TB, who knows. I’m just glad he’s going to be around in S4.
