Mark Hudis Steps Down After Only 4 Episodes of True Blood

HBO Stalwart, Brian Buckner, to Take His Place:

True Blood promo poster - redNews has just been received that Alan Ball’s replacement for Season 6 of True Blood, Mark Hudis, has stepped down from the popular HBO show after 4 episodes! While Hudis was picked to replace Ball after only being with the show since Season 4, Brian Buckner has been with True Blood since Season 1. It is a worry that Hudis has found it hard to fill Ball’s shoes and has been quoted as saying:

It’s impossible to fill Alan Ball’s shoes …  really, this plane is in the air, and I just want to land it safely.

Hudis has signed a two year contract with HBO, but it appears that he will possibly be focusing more on the developmental side of his contract now.

Do you think this sudden change of leadership will help or hinder Season 6? Let us know in the comments below.
