We were just thinking about True Blood, actually, and how we can't really be any more excited for it…
..and then we hear Alfre Woodard is returning!
She's the one who played Lafayette's mother in the third season of the HBO series, and she'll be in at least two episodes of the upcoming season!
If for some reason you only want to see the ones she's in, set up your DVR for the fifth and sixth episode for now. We'll wait.
She was actually nominated for an Emmy for her role on True Blood — so you can understand our excitement!
Are U ready for season five??
