Everyone should welcome Mark Hudis with bottles of that fake True Blood drank HBO sells.
Because he's gonna need all the energy he can get when he succeeds Alan Ball as showrunner!!!!
With the series creator passing the torch to work on Cinemax's Banshee, Mark has been promoted from co-ep to, well, king… basically.
His two year deal (beginning with the sixth season) comes with A LOT of room for series development. Now, imagine our fingers clasping together like Russell Edgington, because not only does that mean a probable Season 7, it also means EXTREME new blood. YES!!!
We've got our eye on you, Hudis… but only because we have complete faith in you. We mean, you have been on the show for two years after all.
But please excuse us while we work on that time machine designed to take us to June 10!
