Stephen Moyer Mentions Tidbits For Season 3 Of True Blood

September 25, 2009 by  

Anna Paquin and Stephen MoyerAlthough the secrets of True Blood season three are being kept tightly under wraps, Stephen Moyer did mention that werewolves will enter the scene, as they did in the third Sookie Stackhouse book, Club Dead. That’s one of the few elements of the story for next season that Alan Ball has been willing to confirm.

Speaking to Extra at a benefit for Good Dog Animal Rescue at L.A. Dogworks, Stephen also opened up about his big proposal moment to Anna:

“I try to surprise her all the time and she loathes it…She opened [the ring] up, she looked at it, and she looked at me. I said, ‘It is what you think it is.’ She said, ‘Oh yeah, what do I think it is?’ And the rest is private.”

Several of Stephen and Anna’s True Blood costars have talked about how professional the couple is when they’re working on set, and how they didn’t know for several months about their relationship. Stephen explains that he and Anna decided to make sure they were serious about their feelings first:

“We wanted to know that what we were doing was absolutely the right thing before we brought all the craziness–you guys–into it.”

He adds that filming the Bill and Sookie sex scenes is not as awkward anymore, now that the crew knows that they are a couple:

“Our crew has seen everything–seen all the wobbly bits. So I suppose the fact that they do know takes all the embarrassment away. ‘Oh there’s those two again, getting their tongues down each other’s throats.’ “

Stephen and Anna are very fortunate to have found each other, and to be able to work so closely together. It must get old speaking to the press all the time about their personal lives, but it is nice that they oblige us with cute little stories like this about their relationship!

    It’s gonna be a long 9 months to wait for season 3.That’s for sure! I remember when the Sopranos would go on hiatus~~sometimes for months even years at a time,I would think What will I do without The Sopranos on Sunday nights? Then when it got to the last 2 episodes I’d asked myself Is there life after The Sopranos?? LOL I Was disappointed in the series finale.
    Somehow, I got over it. With TB Its different I crave this show More than I did for the Sopranos and that was a good show!
    True Blood has become “My own personal brand of heroin” to borrow a phrase from Twilight. Its gonna be hard to “detox” especially after such an innovative season!
    I agree though 3 months is too short a season!
    Many network shows run about 22-23 maybe even 24 episodes a year
    Can You imagine if Cheers or Cosby or Roseanne Only ran for 12 episodes per year??
    I hope that when season 3 does start sometimme in Dec. That have a lot of coverage on The Buzz and perhaps some behind the scenes type snippets to tide the fans over.

    I didn’t see anything about season 3 that I didn’t already know before the end of season 2…I think a WHO would’ve been nice 🙂 as far as the other stuff, I can wait to know…at least for a little while

  • Alan Ball is WAY too good at keeping the mouths of everyone he works with closed when it comes to spoilers! What does he think we’re gonna talk about until next season?

    And Stephen is awesome for giving us a crumb and more details on his life with Anna, but still… It’s just not enough since we have to wait until DECEMBER before they start filming again and more leaks come out…

    I, for one, like hearing tidbits about the engagement, but also agree with Sanna, AB does not let much get out. He likes the element of surprise!!

  • Sanna

    Stephen is not telling anything else about the new season because he doesn’t know anything else. No one does. Alan doesn’t tell them anything

  • antonio

    Tidbits? More like crumbs!! I’d like some hints on what to expect for next year! I’ve heard enough about Anna & Stephen’s engagement…I’m happy for them But I want to hear some hints or ideas! So He’s Not talking? Sam Where Are You??!!

    • Nia

      You’re right Antonio, crumbs is more like it. He is such a tease. But I think he is like that in real life too. Thats ok Stephen, tease away, we still love you!!
      Way to long till June!

    Ok Next season Werewolves will be introduced into the mix.
    I’m a bit disappointed that he did not drop some other hints about what we the fans could expect for next season.
    No mention of Who might play these weres,If another shifter or 2 might be added into the mix. Nothing on what might be in store for Sookie and Bill …Now that hes been abducted.
    I guess we will have to wait to hear from Sam Trammel~~hes usually a little more talkative about these things! Ok Sammy,What’s doin’? LOL
