Michelle Forbes Thinks True Blood Could Last Nine Seasons

February 13, 2010 by  

Not only do fans of True Blood want the show to continue for many years, those who are a part of it believe that it truly could. Michelle Forbes, the actress who played troublemaker Maryann Forrester in the series, was interviewed by The Sun during her publicity work in the UK to promote the show’s second season which is about to premiere over there.

Michelle thinks that True Blood has so many things going for it–broad appeal, impassioned fans, creative talent behind the scenes–that she doesn’t expect it to be a flash in the pan that fades in popularity as the vampire craze diminishes. After all, the show is about much more than vampires:

“It’s about love, intimacy and family. Vampires happen to be a part of it but it’s not just about them. The appeal for a lot of people is that it’s more the town with different creatures living together.”

Because of that diversity, there are so many characters and storylines for people to identify with.

Since Charlaine Harris is about to release her 10th book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, Michelle knows that there are plenty of stories to tell, as long as the audience is excited to watch. This is certainly good news–Truebies are dying for more, and we’re not going anywhere!

    I think that was alwasy an option becouse books are so important for the story, especially to explain Sookie and Eric relationship that only 5 or 6 seasons weren’t enough….they need time to grown up together, to get far apart and then back together and then find their own way to stay together as in the books, and as i’m sure the books will end with S/E…
    Then there are so many story to tells beside them, Alcide, Quinn, Sam , Jaosn, and most of all Fairy….so 9 seasons will be great, book will be ended by that time^^
