June 3, 2009 by  

true-blood-alan-ballAlan Ball had the opportunity to speak the various media outlets during a conference call and Jennifer Godwin from E!Online, Televisionary and Mo Ryan from the Chicago Tribune tweeted some of the comments that Alan made in reference to what audiences will be seeing during Season 2 of True Blood once it returns on Sunday, June 14, 2009 at 9PM/ET on HBO.

Here are the highlights that were mentioned:

  • Charlaine Harris will have a cameo in the final episode of the season;
  • Alan says Charlaine is “90 percent happy” with how the series has turned out so far;
  • Alan Ball hasn’t seen Twilight the movie or read the books, doesn’t quite understand a vampire story “about abstinence” — “I guess it makes it safe for young girls…”;
  • Vampires are sex”;
  • Alan has no intention of including Bubba in the show;
  • At some point in season 2, we will meet the oldest and “most human” vamp we’ve seen yet. A guy, not [Evan Rachel Wood‘s] character;
  • Evan Rachel Wood plays a powerful vampire in last 2 eps of S2 of True Blood, which returns on HBO June 14.
  • Per Alan, the theme for season 2 of True Blood is “the power of cults, whether strange neo-Greco-Roman cult or church/organized religion.”
  • Alan’s proved that he’s “remaining true to the spirit of the books” but there has to be a creative divergence eventually.
