Video: Carrie Preston’s True Blood Season 5 Predictions

March 21, 2012

Is Arlene’s Family In Danger?

Carrie Preston, True Blood’s ArleneAccording to True Blood actress Carrie Preston, season 5 of the show will be the one to watch. As always, one of the best things about any new season is the host of new characters that come with it. Chris Meloni (Law and Order: SVU), and Scott Foley (Felicity), will be joining the cast this season. Meloni stars as an ancient and very powerful new vamp, and Foley joins as Patrick Devans, a war veteran carrying dangerous baggage.

Preston was quick to note that Foley will be causing more than a few problems for Arlene and Terry. It isn’t yet clear at this point exactly what way Foley will threaten Arlene’s happy marriage, but the actress had this to say during an interview at the Sundance Film Festival:

 “Arlene wants to hold onto her man and her family and that’s always going to be her MO. Anything that comes into her situation and is threatening, she’s not going to take that lying down.”

 

So what are your predictions for what these two guys will get up to during Season 5 of True Blood? Let us know in the comments!

Video: MTV Talks to True Blood Cast at the Golden Globes

January 25, 2012

 

Season 5 Looks To Shake Things Up!

Ryan Kwanten as Jason Stackhouse Recently, MTV got to speak to not one, but FOUR cast members from HBO’s True Blood! Ryan Kwanten, Janina Gavankar, Carrie Preston and Joe Manganiello were present, even though True Blood was overlooked for nominations this year. While there is a bit of a wait until Season 5 starts up, the stars were happy to drop a few snippets of information.

Ryan Kwanten hints at maturity developing in Jason Stackhouse, especially since Andy Bellefleur is not currently being the best Sheriff.

Janina Gavankar suggests nothing ever stays perfect in Bon Temps, so perhaps there will be more complications for the Luna/Sam Merlotte relationship? She hopes not:

“I will always have hope for Sam. They are meant to be. Nobody understands you like another shifter.”

Carrie Preston also suggests there will be trouble between Arlene Fowler and Terry Bellefleur — especially now that an old friend of Terry’s has arrived!

As for our fave werewolf, Alcide? Well, his is the quote of the clip:

“We’ve seen that he’s a sweet guy; we’ve seen that he’s the kind of guy that would be great in a relationship. I think that you’re going to be introduced to a side of him that’s going to slam you up against the wall and go for it.”

Really? I’d like to see that!

Make sure you check out the full video and let us know what you think will happen in Season 5.

True Blood’s Pam Dishes on the Upcoming Season

January 19, 2012

Need Another Reason to Look Forward to Season 5?

Alexander Skarsgård and Kristin Bauer van StratenIf you are anything like me and my friends, one of your favorite things about True Blood is Pam‘s great one liners. Between her and Lafayette there are plenty of great quotes throughout each season. E! Online sat down with Kristin Bauer van Straten to talk about the upcoming season and what’s in store for her character.

Though she was reluctant to reveal any plot details concerning the new season, Bauer still gave Pam fans plenty to look forward to. She gushed:

“Every script I get I go, ‘Oh my god, that’s better than I thought it would be.’ And wardrobe fittings, ‘Oh my god, that’s better than I could have imagined.'”

When you see one of the show’s actors this excited about things to come, you can’t help but to feel some of that energy and excitement. Bauer also spoke about working with Alexander Skarsgård, the sexy Eric Northman, and if his increasing fame has changed him at all. She spoke of Skarsgård’s fame, saying:

“He’s the same guy…We’re buddies. But watch I’ll go watch the movies and then get starstruck all of a sudden.”

Good to hear that he is still the same down to earth guy.

Though Bauer didn’t give away any plot point from the upcoming season, in my opinion that’s a good thing. That way we can all be shocked by those OMG neck twisting sex moments we all love!

True Blood Season 5 Spoilers From Co-EP Raelle Tucker

September 14, 2011

Co-Executive Producer/Writer Spills the Scoop on Season 5:

True Blood vampires by HBOWe have more news on what to expect in Season 5 of HBO’s True Blood, straight from co-executive producer and writer, Raelle Tucker. Remember when Stephen Moyer said there would be “an omnipresent power” next season in this article?

Raelle Tucker backs this up by saying:

“There will be a very significant, strong, mysterious woman at the center of one of our main stories next year. That will be a very familiar and compelling character. It may be someone you’ve heard of before.”

The show will delve pretty deep into the world of fairies, giving us all (including Sookie) a better understanding of the fascinating creatures.  Speaking of Sookie and Supes, as we saw in the finale, she has seemingly sworn them off — at least romantically.  But can one ever really be rid of Supes in Bon Temps?  Highly doubtful.  So what does this mean for Bill and Eric?  What the heck will they be doing, if not fighting over Sookie?  According to Tucker, seeing as how they offed Nan Flanagan,

“The consequences of their actions in the finale are going to chase them for a while next year.”

What about creepy Rene, Terry, and Arlene?  Well, it seems Rene was right!  Terry is going to be nothing but trouble next season, thanks to his old buddy Patrick.  Fitting that Terry’s past would come back to haunt him on All Hallow’s Eve, don’t you think?  But poor Terry isn’t the only character whose past is coming back to haunt him — we now know that Steve Newlin is back (as a vampire, who saw that one coming?!), and so is the King of Mississippi!  Uh oh.  I smell trouble.  That little fella is NOT going to be happy.  Three cheers for Russell Edgington and his crazy antics!

What do you think, Truebies?  Is Season 5 already shaping up to be a good one?
