New Showrunner for True Blood is Announced

It's that time of year in the TV season for creative changes and even though True Blood's fifth season has yet to hit screens there is already news for season 6. This is all contingent on whether HBO's vampire hit gets commissioned for another season but if it does Mark Hudis has been named as the new showrunner.

Alan Ball announced back in February that season 5 would be his last as showrunner on True Blood and released a statement at the time saying

"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. »
