NOOOO!!!!!

Why, Alan dearest?? WHY!?!

Sigh… Yes, perezcious readers… it is true.

Despite our wishes it was all just a rumor, Alan Ball has confirmed he will leave his showrunner position if (and when) True Blood continues on into season six.

Since he's prepping his newest tv baby — Cinemax's Banshee — he won't have enough time to give the amazing world of Bon Temps his all.

But he says it's because of the excellent cast and crew that he knows he can leave with good faith.

Alan explains:

True Blood has been, and will continue to be, a highlight of not only my career but my life. Because of the fantastic cast, writers, producers and crew, with whom I have been lucky enough to work these past five years, I know I could step back and the show will continue to thrive as I look forward to new and exciting ventures.

Ugh!! Our heart!! It hurts!!

We're crying blood over here… someone get us a kleenex!!!

    Wow!!! This is a major blow to the show! I hope they can get a writer who is equal.

    Won't be the same show without him. I guess he got bored and ran out of ideas. Last season was a bit boring and predictable for me. I'm not surprised and I hope they bring someone as good as him if not better like he was when the show first started.
