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!!!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
