True Blood Season 3 Spoiler: Returning Character

March 18, 2010 by  

Michael Ausiello from has a little spoiler information regarding season 3 of True Blood.  Nothing really shocking but is it always nice to get any information about our favorite vampire show.  Here are Michael‘s answers to two fan questions:

Question: Hello fellow Smurf lover! Any new scoop on the upcoming season of True Blood? —Candy
I’m 90 percent certain this is new: Mariana Klaveno is returning as Bill’s maker, Lorena, for roughly six episodes.

Question: Do you know if True Blood’s third season will feature Bubba? He’s not exactly a major character in the books, but I still love him. —Kristal
Unfortunately, Alan Ball says he couldn’t figure out a way to introduce Bubba “without it being cheesy,” adding, “I don’t know how to do it without either using an Elvis impersonator, which is cheesy, or having somebody and never seeing their face, just hearing their voice — and to me that sounds equally cheesy. So that’s just one of the casualties of the transfer from book to screen.”

    Bruce Campbell played Elvis in a really weird movie called ‘Bubba-HoTep’. He’s not an impersonater, per se, but he does a believable ‘impression’. I think he would make an awesome Bubba.

  • Nobody was ever a greater EP fan than I was. I would think CH was a fan too.
    I love Bubba’s character in the books. I wish there was a way AB could fit him in.

    Lorena is essential for Season 3. Can’t wait to see how closely Club Dead is to Season 3. Hope Lorena meets the same outcome.

    Maybe Lafayette will take Bubba’s role in Season 3.

    Sorry Bubba will not be included in any season of TrueBlood.
    Alan Ball has said this in Season 1 when the series was
    first getting started.
    It has to do with his love and respect for Elvis Aaron Presley.
    And also the Estate would not allow it.
    this has to do with many legal issues of using the King’s
    “image on television”~Also Alan said he would not use a
    Elvis impersonator. Ever.
