'True Blood' Will Be Back for a Fourth Season


Backed up by 5.1 million viewers on the third season opener, the vampire series is to return for another story next year.

For showing a strong number at the beginning of season 3, "True Blood" gets another season. HBO has just announced on Monday, June 21 that it renews the vampire series for a fourth season, ordering a full 12-episode season. Like usual, production will start early next year for a summer 2011 premiere.

"The new season of 'True Blood' is off to a terrific start, as enthusiasm for this unique show continues to build among both subscribers and critics," said HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo. "We're looking forward to more chills from Alan Ball and his gifted team next year."

The third season opener drew 5.1 million viewers. Although not the highest number that the series has, it is an increase of 38% from the second season premiere.

Ball himself is thrilled at the thought of adapting more stories from the books by Charlaine Harris. He said, "I am beyond thrilled to be able to continue working with this amazing cast and crew. This is the most fun I have ever had."
