Some may be thinking that True Blood will be toning down the sexuality and focusing on the vampire war in Season 6 – but that’s not the case. The show’s writer’s plan for Season 6 is for Sookie to grow up in more ways than one.
“This season, the writers and I have been making a concentrated effort to help Sookie grow up, become a little bit darker, more accepting of her fate, more self-knowing,” said Brian Buckner in an interview with Manhattan Magazine.
Not only will we be seeing a darker side of Sookie, but she’ll also be maturing sexually, taking a more aggressive approach to the many sexy men in her life.
“Things left off in a pretty serious place in regards to where Eric and I leave Bill having just turned into this creature of the blood with these monster fangs – and who the hell knows what that is?” said Paquin during the same interview. “So obviously, that situation has to [play] out. And we have new cast members this year, and that’s always fun to have fresh blood, if you’ll pardon the pun.”
We won’t just be seeing a new Sookie, but a new Bill as well.
“Is he going to be evil? What does he want? What is he going to do?” said former showrunner Alan Ball. “Will he be able to revert back to Bill? That’s for future seasons. The implication, certainly, is that he is more ferocious.”
Here is the latest True Blue Season 6 trailer:
True Blood will return to HBO on Sunday, June 16.
What are your thoughts on Sookie and her life changes? I am glad she will be growing up, but at the same time I am sad that the sweet, innocent girl is gone. Hopefully this new Sookie is a badass and not all moody and mopey. As for her sex life… well, I am sick of the same old romances and the pointless sex scenes. BUT, if the scenes have a real purpose in the storyline then I am all for more sexy times.
