True Blood Season 3 Spoiler News: Sam, Sookie and Werewolves

February 17, 2010 by  

We have all seen Sam Trammell who plays our favorite shapeshifter, Sam Merlotte on True Blood, talk numerous times about what we can expect on the upcoming season 3. Well he is at it once again, this time speaking with Digital Spy. Sam’s character was at the center of season 2 being involved with the whole Maryann mystery and season 3 promises to put Sam right back into the thick of things.

One thing Sam has said about season 3 is that fans will finally be introduced to his character’s biological family. This plot circles around the fact that more and more characters, such as Sookie, Jason, and Andy, have been exposed to the fact that Sam is a shapeshifter. Sam had this to say about the introduction of his character’s family.

“Screw it! I want to go find my parents.’ It’s going to lead to some pretty dramatic and interesting stuff for him this year.” Sam also revealed to fans that his character’s family can best be described as “pretty bad news.”

This should lead to some interesting twists in our True Blood saga.

Sam has also talked about how his character will always share a connection with Sookie, who is played by the lovely Anna Paquin, even though she has chosen to be with Bill. Sam states,

“I think Sam and Sookie will always have a connection. I think that’s an anchor for him and for the show that he will come back to again and again, season after season.”

As we all know we will be seeing the introduction of werewolves in season 3 however how the scenes with these new characters will be played out is still a mystery and we will have to wait until the new season airs.  However, Sam did state some of his own theories regarding the werewolves.

“I’m not sure — I did read the books but I’m not exactly sure how the werewolves are going to be put into the show,” he said. “I do know the werewolves are disgusting creatures. They’re dirty, they’re not shape-shifters — they’re disgusting, low-level, smelly creatures. Perfect for Sam!”

Sam has also admitted that he hopes True Blood’s writers will place Sam in some more danger as the series continues. We can only wait and guess as to what is in store for our shapeshifter. But no matter what True Blood holds in store for Sam we know it will make for an amazing season 3!
