Almost everybody involved in the fourth season of "True Blood" turned up at PaleyFest on Saturday, March 5 to support the HBO series. Held in Beverly Hills' Saban Theater, the press event was kicked off with a red carpet event for the 16 cast as well as creator Alan Ball.
Lead actors slash husband and wife, Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin, came together followed by other original cast from first season such as Alexander Skarsgard, Sam Trammell, Jim Parrack, Ryan Kwanten, Chris Bauer, Carrie Preston, Nelsan Ellis and Rutina Wesley. These lots were joined by newly-added regular Joe Manganiello and last season's new cast like Marshall Allman and Kevin Alejandro.
Inside the venue, a sizzle reel of the most memorable scenes from the first three seasons was played, followed by a clip from season 4. The new footage features Hoyt, Jessica and Pam in front of Fangtasia as they fend off Christian protesters. Hoyt takes action when one of them calls him "fang-banger".
During the conference, Ball told the audience that Tara and Pam would join forces in one episode and confirmed that Gary Cole and Fiona Shaw would appear in the new season. One spoilery fact was revealed. Sookie and Bill will draw apart once again, and this time it's because of the vampire's "betrayal". Paquin refused to confirm whether Sookie would end up with either Alcide or Eric, saying about the former, "Alcide comes with baggage" and about the latter, "Eric is problematic for Sookie."
"True Blood" returns June 12 at 9 P.M. on HBO.
