Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of True Blood, “Lost Cause,” stop reading now (or, at least read our full recap first). We spoke with Nelsan Ellis, who plays fan favorite Lafayette, about his second favorite scene of the series—when Lafayette asks Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) if she really knows James (Nathan Parsons), and why it’s so unimaginable that he would want a piece of happiness, too. (His favorite Lafayette moment, for the record, remains the AIDs burger scene from season 1.) READ FULL STORY

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of True Blood, “Lost Cause,” stop reading now. (Or, at least read our full recap first.) The Pam and Eric show continued as the duo traveled to Dallas in search of Sarah Newlin at a Ted Cruz fundraiser hosted at the Bush Library. We spoke to True Blood‘s costume designer, Audrey Fisher, about their memorable formal wear. And because we’re still obsessed with those flashbacks to 1986, 1996, and 2006, we got the backstory on those looks as well.
The Dallas Fundraiser
Seeing as how Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) would dress Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) in a purple sequin gown that Pam would joke makes her look like a “republic-nt,” and Pam would get even more joy out of dressing Eric up as the perfect Texan businessman, Fisher had one focus: “Try to get costumes that definitely were a big wink, but that weren’t too comical,” she says.
For Eric, she custom-made a traditional Western-style suit: “I had to make at least doubles of it, maybe even triples. I sketched it up. We found a great fabric that we could get enough of, because he’s a tall man—it’s a lot of yardage, more than just the average suit. And a wonderful tailor in Koreatown whipped up these beautiful suits that fit like a glove and have really beautiful Western detailing. We topped it off with not a 10-gallon hat—that would be too comical—but a really beautiful Western hat.” READ FULL STORY
Spoiler alert: If the July 13 episode of True Blood is still on your DVR, stop reading now. (Or, read our full recap.) We asked Carrie Preston to relive Arlene’s rescue.
And good news: Whether or not she makes it to the Aug. 24 series finale of the show, it’s not the last you’ll see of her on HBO. She’s set to guest star in a season 2 episode of Getting On, playing Denya Thorp, a cancer patient staying at the Billy Barnes Extended Care Facility who’s ready for a quick exit. READ FULL STORY
Spoiler alert! If you haven’t seen this week’s episode of True Blood, “Death is Not the End,” stop reading now (or at least check out our full recap first). We spoke with actress Tara Buck, who’s billed as a regular for the first time this season, about fan favorite Ginger’s backstory, which, along with Fangtasia’s origin story, was revealed in a series of glorious flashbacks.

If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of True Blood, “I Found You,” stop reading now (or, at least check out our full recap first). We spoke separately with writer Kate Barnow, director Howard Deutch, and actor Ryan Kwanten for an oral history, if you will, of Jason’s much-anticipated—and so very Jason—sex dream about Eric (Alexander Skarsgard).
True Blood‘s final season begins this Sunday at 9 p.m. on HBO, and a warning to viewers: Prepare for major Blood-shed. “It’s the final season of True Blood, so gone are the days where we pull our punches,” teases showrunner Brian Buckner. “Heads are gonna roll.”
The premiere picks up immediately after the events of the season 6 finale, which found Bellefleur’s Bar and Grill under siege by a group of Hep-V-infected vamps. “Mayor Merlotte, Sheriff Bellefleur, and Jason Stackhouse are going to have their hands full, because not only do they have to fend off these H-vamps, but also they have to fend off this [Bon Temps] vigilante group,” he explains. In a deliberate nod to Hurricane Katrina, adds Buckner, Blood‘s tiny Louisiana town will be left on its own in the wake of the Hep-V outbreak, getting no support or protection from the government.

Picture this: Sookie Stackhouse is walking through the cemetery next to her house late at night when she sees Bill across the way. Suddenly, she can’t control herself anymore. But instead of running to him—much like she did in season 1—she bursts into song.
Sounds strange…but it could happen. EW has confirmed that True Blood composer Nathan Barr has pitched the idea for a True Blood musical. Barr told the Associated Press that the musical, which he’d like to be in workshop stages a year from now, would “try to return to the roots of the show.” It’s not clear yet whether that means cast members would return for the new project—although Stephen Moyer reportedly helped Barr put together samples for his pitch.
As far as HBO is concerned, this project is still in “very early discussions.”
'True Blood': Watch Sookie and Bill make a dramatic decision about their relationship -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
Anna Paquin’s Sookie and Stephen Moyer’s Bill were not together at the end of True Blood‘s sixth season; the faerie waitress was dating Alcide (Joe Manganiello). Sookie wouldn’t even enter into a vampire/human protection agreement with Bill. But based on this exclusive clip from episode 3 of the final season of Blood, little miss Stackhouse appears to have changed her mind. What does this mean for the future of Sookie and Bill’s relationship? Truebies will have to wait and see. Watch the tease below… READ FULL STORY
'True Blood' trailer: Sookie, Bill, Alcide get ready for battle, but someone's still missing -- VIDEO
“Is this war, Bill?” Sookie asks. “How do we get through it?” Love — and lust (thank you, shirtless Alcide) — seem to be the answer in the newest trailer for True Blood‘s final, 10-episode season.
In this minute-long tease, viewers get a brief glimpse of all the big characters returning for a final hurrah: Lafayette is still looking for love, and Sam is still pondering where he belongs. Perhaps most enticingly, Bill seems to be preparing to make the ultimate sacrifice for Sookie, because, as Bill declares in that honeyed Southern drawl, “I owe you everything.”
So many True Blood suitors, and yet, ugh, Eric is still MIA. What gives? READ FULL STORY
