Less than a week from the June 26 premiere on HBO, season 4 of "True Blood" has been teased through a bunch of new clips. In one video, Eric is seen warning Sookie about the danger she might face once other vampires learn who she really is, while Jessica admits to Bill that she has fed on a human beside Hoyt in another clip.
Other sneak peeks see Eric forcing Marnie, a leader of a coven practicing magic, to accept a deal, and Jessica having an argument with Hoyt over their meals. Also highlighted in the clips are Pam who advises Sookie to take Eric's offer, Lafayette who seemingly feels uncomfortable about dealing with magic, and Sam who may get a new love interest.
With the fourth season fast approaching, creator Alan Ball has begun negotiating his return for a fifth season. "Right now I'm in the middle of negotiating for a fifth season," he said at the red carpet premiere of season 4 on Tuesday, June 21. "I don't know if I have any left in me after that. We'll see."
Joking about a possible storyline should the show get few more seasons, the showrunner said, "I think if we did 13 seasons we'd have to address why vampires are aging." He added, "Maybe there would be a bad batch of Tru Blood. ... With the supernatural thing you can always go places storywise that you couldn't go on another show."
