We don't know about you, but after the INSANE finale of True Blood a few weeks back, we think waiting for the sixth season to premiere next summer is going to SUCK!
Just like the show's promotional campaign always says! Ha!
But unfortunately, according to creator and former show runner, Alan Ball, there's going to be LESS of what we're waiting for when Sookie and friends return!
That's right, although every year so far has had 12 episodes, the sixth season is only going to have ten!
But while the economy factors into the decision, it's mostly so Anna Paquin can have her twin babies, due in November!
As he explains:
"We're moving production to January to accommodate her. And there will only be 10 shows next season partly because of Anna and partly because of the economics."
Ugh! Well we can't very well be disappointed because of that, can we?!
Gurl needs time to spend with her babies! No fault there!
Although if there IS going to be a reduced number of episodes, they had EACH better be EXCEPTIONAL!
And by that, we mean Viking Vampire Eric better be naked in EVERY single one!
