Sookie! Please tell me you heard that in Bill Compton’s voice…
If you are/were a True Blood fan you may love this – apparently there is a True Blood Reboot In The Works At HBO and I am not sure how to feel.
According to Comic Book, A True Blood reboot is reportedly in the works at HBO, with Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa set as the executive producer.
If you didn’t watch the original series, here’s what True Blood is all about:
Set in modern times, vampires roam the Earth and are humans’ mortal enemies. However, a substitute has been found for human blood, a substitute that vampires can consume with the same effect as human blood. This is True Blood. Now humans and vampires can co-exist in harmony, and even form relationships. But there will always be rogue elements on both sides ready to exploit the uneasy truce.
Of course, there is way more to it. Lots of different creatures and crazy plot twists.
The original True Blood series ran for 7 seasons and ended in 2014 so it’s been 6 years since we’ve seen True Blood (unless you’re watching re-runs of course).
Aguirre-Sacasa will reportedly unite with AMC’s NOS4A2 creator Jami O’Brien to write the True Blood reboot pilot.
O’Brien is also set to executive produce the new series. Most notably: original True Blood creator Alan Ball is said to also be coming back for the reboot series, in the guise of executive producer. He served as showrunner for five of True Blood‘s seven seasons.
As of right now we don’t have any additional information and have no idea when this would begin filming or be released but we will keep you updated!
So, what do you think? Are you excited for a True Blood reboot?
