HBO has confirmed today that we’ll be seeing out favorite vampires, witches, werewolves and whatever else I missed that the series has thrown at us next summer for a 5th season. With Entourage coming to end after it’s last few episodes it seems as if True Blood will have to hold down the fort for HBO.
“I am thrilled that True Blood continues to enjoy a phenomenal reception from both subscribers and critics,” said Michael Lombardo president of HBO Programming. “Alan Ball and his gifted team have devised the greatest thrill ride on TV.”
“I remain amazed and delighted by the enthusiasm of our viewers,” says Ball. “I can’t imagine having more fun than this.”
