HBO’s president of programming, Michael Lambardo, said today, “I am thrilled that True Blood continues to enjoy a phenomenal reception from both subscribers and critics. Alan Ball and his gifted team have devised the greatest thrill ride on TV.” Alan Ball also said about the show, “I remain amazed and delighted by the enthusiasm of our viewers.

True Blood has been a huge hit with fans since it first premiered in 2008. For those of you living under a rock, the show follows telepath Sookie Stackhouse, played by Anna Paquin, and the trials of tribulations of life once vampires come out of the coffin. She dates a few, kills a few, good times!

The real star of the show recently is hot ass Alexander Skarsgard who plays ancient vampire Eric. He’s been seen around New York City strutting his stuff and making the ladies swoon just by flashing a smile.
