Hold on to your hats, True Blood fans. Even tho we’re all gonna hafta wait until June 13 to watch new episodes of the hit HBO series, it has been announced that a mini-series titled A Drop of True Blood made up of mini-episodes will begin airing on HBO starting May 2. These mini-eps will feature footage from the True Blood storyline that has been filmed expressly for this mini-series!
A piece of good news comes for anxious fans of “True Blood”. In order to tide fans over before the show officially kicks off the third season in June, HBO will release mini episodes which are written by creator Alan Ball. Dubbed “A Drop of True Blood”, the miniseries contains six episodes. On its official site, HBO said, “We know #waitingsucks. That’s why we’re giving you six new True Blood mini episodes, written by Alan Ball. A new one premieres each week starting Sunday May 2, directly following the Season 2 replays at 8. It all leads up to the Season 3 premiere June 13, only on HBO.” These episodes are not from the previous seasons and won’t be seen in the new one, the trailer says. From the look of it, the miniseries will cover all major and secondary characters from Sookie and Bill to Eric’s sidekick, Pam.
!!!! This is FANTASTIC news. I thought we’d have to content ourselves with short behind-the-scenes video and promo posters to sate our thirst for True Blood in the weeks leading up to the season 3 premiere. These new mini-episodes sound like the perfect little snacks to enjoy that will provide NEW material and promote the upcoming new season. Alan Ball and HBO are geninses … this is such a great idea. I can’t wait!! Now we only have a little over one week to wait for NEW True Blood! Who’s excited?
