True Blood Gets Premiere Date!

What could be better than an excuse to put Ryan Kwanten shirtless on top of this blog?

How about the news that HBO has finally given True Blood a premiere date for season three!

Here's the scoop on the exact day you must mark on your calendar, plus the girl who has to be Michael Scott's (Steve Carell) new love interest on The Office or I might die a slow emotional death...

True Blood: Comes back to HBO on June 13, 2010!

Rumor has it that at least one character we love will die, which makes me a little concerned for what Michael Emerson's real-life Missus, Carrie Preston, told me recently (with an ultra-ominous tone): Something shocking happens to Arlene. D'oh!

We caught up with Ryan Kwanten at yesterday's Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure (his mother is a cancer survivor), and he said they're already halfway through shooting the upcoming season of True Blood, plus some other stuff our intern can't remember because she was lost in his dreamland.

Today 2:20 PM PDT by Kristin Dos Santos

You didn't just call True Blood awesome drama did you
Have you seen the first two seasons? It's campy fun. No drama to be found.

Not too surprising given the hole in their schedule after Treme, but glad to see it confirmed.

Re: True Blood Gets Premiere Date!

HBO started airing minisodes tonight after the encore of the season 2 episode. There will be six altogether leading up to the June 13th premiere. Tonight's episode involved Eric and Pam. It looks like they're using these minisodes to introduce new characters.

Next week's involves everyone's favorite lifelong virgin, Jessica.

Found episode 1:

Glad I gave this show a second chance. Initially I couldn't even make it through the Pilot and thought it was awful. Gave in another shot when both seasons were on On Demand recently. Watched every ep in the span of a little over a week. Now I cant wait for the S3 premiere.

I also went back after finding the first half of season 1 horrible. And while it ended strong I found season 2 absolutely atrocious. Worse than the worst of season 1.

So now the question is if I should not watch season 3 because of season 2, or if I should watch it since it can't possible get any worse (and the trailer looks good)

Good to see James Frain. I think he's a cool actor and not in nearly enough stuff.
