Which True Blood Newbies Will Make It To Season Four??

They're all sticking around!

Season three of True Blood is coming to a close September 12th, which prompts the question: how many of the fresh faces this season will make it to next year?

Thankfully, we know already that the unbelievably seksi Joe Manganiello has signed on as werewolf Alcide full-time, but what about everyone else?!

Well, we're delighted to hear that according to Nelsan Ellis, his character Lafayette's love interest, Jesus (played by Kevin Alejandro) will be around, too!

Ellis confirms:

"We're partners in crime now, my boy toy, so he will be back."

Amazing! It's about time!

Marshall Allman, who plays Sam Merlotte's troubled brother, Tommy, has also confirmed that he will be returning, as well as Lauren Bowles' wiccan waitress Holly!

But the most surprising return of all will reportedly be (SPOILER ALERT - DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW!) Dennis O'Hare as the Vampire King of Mississippi and all around freak Russell Edgington!

Oh shit! Does this mean he's going to survive the finale?!

Sources claim that the villainous character won't be around for the beginning of the season, but will make an appearance at some point later on!

Oh goodness! We hope he leaves our beloved Viking Vampire Eric ALONE!

What do U think about the returning cast? Is Russell coming back alive, or perhaps as a ghost or in a flashback??

    Could live without Sam's brother but the rest are fine. Alcide will never take the place of Eric though! And Russell? Probably just a flashback.

    i'm sure russell will be a flashback.

    Eric is going to survive he takes the stage mainly in the fourth book if the TV show is loosely based on the books. They will keep Eric Around. But then again, Layette was killed at the beginning on the second book and he's still around so anything can happen.

    Tommy must die!!! He´s a bore and his lame story too!

    Russel is the best vilan ever and so far Daniel O´Hare is the best male actor in the show.

    Team Sam Merlotte always!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well when you're that old of a vampire maybe he'll become something else or???

    From those who know the books the show is based on, Russell has a lot more to do with the story so I am not surprised he somehow survives the sun. He's 3,000 years old after all and I hardly think one so wise would walk into his enemies lair without a backup plan. My guess is there are some werewolves lurking nearby who'll break the handcuffs and dash him off to safety… leaving Eric to fend for himself… And apparently Crystal has a bigger role in the books, too, though how closely they'll follow the books no one knows. So far Sookie being a fairy deviates from the books, or so I am told.

    Oh, but Tommy? Yuck can't stand him. Summer. hope she's toast. Time for Hoyt's overbearing mom to hit the road too (or be buried under it). I knew Jesus would have to stay around to satisfy the 'gays' (yeah you, Perez) but he is about as interesting as paint drying. More time for Bill, Sookie, Eric, Jason, Sam, Jessica. and yeah even Arlene; and ditch these other hanger ons.

    Russell is so much fun. I'm glad he'll be back in some way. If only Taylor and even crazy Franklin made it…



  13. 13

    I have heard rumblings that the season will end on a cliffhanger with the audience not knowing whether Russell is dead or not.



  14. 14

    when will this season be on dvd?



  15. 15

    It's a flashback.. he has to die because a villian always dies during the last episode..



  16. 16

    Love them all,russel hopefully will be a flashback
    And alcide could never replace erics place of hotness and perfection :)



  17. 17

    Does anybody know, why Alex aka Viking Vampire Eric ist on IMDB only listed for 3 episodes in season 4? All other cast members are listed for the full season… I'm a bit worried :-)



  18. 18

    oh the irony of the 4:1 white girl/guy to black girl/guy … those two will make it or else it'll make unequal opportunity television.

    I have read all of the books and if the show is true to them, them Eric will be a round for the whole thing. Sookie really is a fairy and this also plays a major role in the books. There should also be coming a new character named Quinn who can turn into a tiger and Sookie falls hard for him. She will not be able to decide in the future who she loves more, Bill or Eric. I am rooting for Eric all the way!!!! Love A Skars portrayal of him! In the books, Eric actually tricks Sookie into marrying him. I am anxious for this storyline to appear on the show. Get done with Bill already and move on to Eric!!!!!!!
