True Blood Creator Negotiating For Season 5 - But That Might Be It!

Say whaaaat??? Say it ain't so, Alan Ball. Say it ain't so!!!

We don't mean to put a damper on things for all you True Blood fans out there, but it sounds like that series may be coming to an end after its fifth season. Alan Ball, creator of the True Blood series, revealed that he is in negotiations for the fifth season of the show, but after that, it's status is unknown. He explains:

“I don’t know if I have any left in me after that. We’ll see .. I think if we did 13 seasons we’d have to address why vampires are aging. 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.”

Um, sounds plausible to us! This is a supernatural show, after all. You can pretty much make it up as you go along!

Okay, no. We agree that it shouldn't go on that long, but five seasons jus doesn't seem enough! Let's split the difference and say nine seasons. How's that?

    Things are getting a little too twisted and away from the books. Still really enjoy the shows but I think if he took it for another 4 season it just may jump the shark. If you really love the story the Charlaine Harris' books will not let you down. With 11 books in the Sookie Stackhouse series it will keep you entertained.

    C'mon Alan, cant they do special effects on camera so that the actors that play the vampires don't age? I say 8 seasons should be enough

    Hopefully, Alan Ball will one day find himself some time to write another genious screenplay like American Beauty, instead of wasting another 12 years (Since that film) on writing and producing tv series.

    Surely he can't be serious? He would piss off a lot of die hard True Blood fans if he quit after another season. There are 11 books so he has enough material to work with. I doubt any of us are going to care that the actors are aging. We all know they're not really vampires!

    but the season when Bill disappeeared sucked. and now apparently Bill and Soockie will break up for good… that's so wrong. all the crazy shit should happen while Soockie and Bill are dating, love triangles are welcome, but they should not break up…

    What a crock actors don't age — it's called botox! Better than drinking human blood … and creepier too!

    Good, that show sucks. No, really. And Anna Paquin is the worst freaking actress ever. That show really bugs… people watch it for all the sex and nudity. Yawn.
