Get Your Fangs Ready, There's A 'True Blood' Reboot In The Works At HBO

I don't know about you, but I don't think we gave the vampire craze of the '00s enough credit. Sure, we all had our laughs poking a little fun at Twilight, but we also got one of the best sleazy-in-a-good-way, funny, sexy, and just plain fun television shows of all time out of it.

Obviously, I'm talking about True Blood.

*True Blood*, based on a series of novels by Charlaine Harris, was a huge hit on HBO.

The show, starring Anna Paquin as Sookie Stackhouse and Stephen Moyer as dreamy vampire Bill Compton, ran from 2008 until 2014, and had a huge following of fans obsessed with the drama and supernatural going on in Bon Temps, Louisiana. Vampires, witches, fairies, werewolves — a love triangle (or square) was really the least of Sookie's worries.

It looks like we're going back to Bon Temps again!


According to The Hollywood Reporter, a reboot of the series is in the works at HBO, under the watchful eye of Riverdale and The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

Alan Ball, the creator of the original True Blood, is on board as an executive producer.

Reactions from fans of the original series has been mixed.

While some fans are excited for a return to familiar stomping grounds (biting grounds?), others think there's no improving on perfection.

"Been thinking about the #TrueBlood reboot all day & while I miss Merlotte’s on my Sunday nights and the finale was disappointing, I just don’t see how a reboot can ever match the magic of Alexander Skarsgard as Eric Northman," one fan tweeted.

What do you think?

Are you excited to see a return to the True Blood universe in any form, or does this news make you want to do Bad Things, like tweet angrily at HBO for messing with perfection? Let us know how you feel in the comments below!
