Lauren Bowles True Blood Holly ClearyTalking with The National Ledger, Lauren Bowles said she is definitely bringing her character, Holly Cleary, back to Bon Temps in Season 4 of HBO‘s True Blood.

Referring to creator Alan Ball‘s revelation that Season 4 will be “the season of the witch”, Lauren said her casting as a witch is “completely surreal”.

“I watched the show from the beginning, so I couldn’t have been more psyched about becoming a part of this world.  It didn’t seem within the realm of possibility.  I’m pinching myself.”

Holly was introduced late in the season as a single mom with ‘skills’, taking on the waitress job at Merlotte’s.  Her role is becoming more prominent as is her relationship with Arlene (Carrie Preston).  But other than stating she’s returning next season, Lauren says she doesn’t know much else.

While waiting for filming to start up again, Lauren stays busy with her 16 month-old daughter and the new house she and her husband recently moved into.

We don’t know what we’ll see witch Holly doing in the season finale, but fans will just have to wait until it airs on September 12. Yes, waiting sucks!
