Guess Who's Coming Back To True Blood!

| Filed under: TV NewsTrue Blood


It's official!


Check out which former True Blood star is returning to the series in its fifth season…AFTER THE JUMP!


Hurray! We knew he wouldn't be staying buried!

Denis O'Hare, who played the villainous vampire king Russell Edgington on True Blood, has revealed that he will be returning to the HBO series when it comes back for its fifth season next summer!

Although there were reports that he'd be coming back sometime during the fourth season, the actor now explains:

"It was up in the air. They were definitely bringing me back, it was just a matter of if they wanted to bring me back the last couple episodes [of season four] or bring me back at the beginning [of season five]. So they decided to do it at the beginning of season five. Obviously characters evolve, and part of the reason [Russell] evolved was they kept making him older and older. We made him this Pagan Celt [and] they are just wild people. They have a very different relationship to everything in terms of nature and in terms of their own belief system. I just love that."

Yes! Yes! Yes!

We've been loving THIS season so far, but knowing that he'll be back only makes us more excited for the seasons to come!

We can't even begin to imagine how CRAZY he's going to be when he's resurrected!

    ai, it really sucks! i think he was the worst character ever in true blood, seriously, lets season sucked! nothing worse than a ugly overconfident overly gay character to throw all the gay image in the mud. I'm gay but I couldn't stand all that gayness bullshiz with this character? Why can't they bring back the adorable Godrick! Godrick is the one everyone would like to see back, not that overconfident thing. tell her to go to " the A-list" ny, on Logo, or Z-list… whatever… that's the place for overconfident ugly overgay queens!
