March 16, 2010 by  

Sources have confirmed that Carrie Preston who plays Merlotte’s waitress, Arlene Fowler on True Blood, will be starting in a multi-episode role on CBS, “The Good Wife.” Her character is a woman by the name of Elsbeth Mann and she is will be part of Peter’s legal team on the show.

This news has brought about many rumors about the fate of Carrie’s character, Arlene, on True Blood.  HBO declined to comment on the topic but a True Blood insider has said not to count on it.  We are reminded that Arlene is not a major presence in the third book considering that most of the action in the third book takes place outside of Bon Temps. Carrie may have just had a little bit of free time on her hands. Most True Blood fans will side with that!

Don’t forget, Season 3 of True Blood premieres June 13th!!
