We're going to EXPLODE with excitement over this wonderful news!
Alan Ball has shut down rumors that he'd be stepping away from his wildly successful True Blood after the current season wraps, because he's apparently closed a multi-year deal with HBO, which ensures that he's committed to the series!
However, after season five, he'll be allowed to decide whether or not he wants to stay on as full-time executive producer/showrunner!
"I have no desire to leave. Doing the show, I'm having more fun than I have ever had in my life."
Excellent! That's the spirit!
Keep up the good work!
