In addition, EW.com has learned that their will be new showrunner for season five of True Blood revealing “Now that  True Blood Executive Producer Alan Ball has decided to step back from his head writer duties after the fifth season that begins June 10, the pay network will bring in co-executive producer Mark Hudis to fill the void. Hudis has worked in the True Blood writers room with Ball since season 4. Back in February HBO issues a press release saying that “If we proceeded to True Blood’s sixth season that Alan would take a supervisory role on the series and not be the day-to-day showrunner.  If we proceed to season six, the show will remain in the very capable hands of the talented team of writers and producers who have been with the show for a number of years. This is the best possible world for both HBO and Alan Ball.” Hudis’ other credits include Nurse Jackie and Miss Guided.

And as for Carolyn Hennesy, in an interview with Zap2it.com where she chats it up about her new role on the Vampire series, she had this to say about all the male creatures she has the pleasure to mix it up with each week! “To be honest, I’m Team Every Male on That Show! There is no one on who’s team I’m not. I’m Team Alcide, (Joe Manganiello) I’m Team Lafayette (Nelson Ellis). I’m Team Everybody. And after meeting the two of them, I wouldn’t choose teams if you shot me through with silver.  They are just princes among men.”

So with the previews, the change in showrunner and Hennesy will you be tuning into True Blood season five? Let us know!

Good for her! She wasn’t getting any attention or storyline on GH, so I’m glad she found something to showcase her talent. Besides, when she was featured on GH, it was always revolving around Sonny, as do most story lines on GH tend to do…….So, I’m glad she found something that she can “sink her teeth into.” LOL Good luck Carolyn!!!
