Aaaand it’s official!
HBO has renewed True Blood for yet another season. Alan Ball is stepping down though, due to other projects he’ll be busy with for both HBO and Cinemax. He is staying as executive producer only.
Seasons’ 5 premiere had aprox. 6.7 mil viewers with roughly 4.5 for the rest of the episodes so far aired. If that wasn’t reason enough for a renewal, I don’t know what would’ve been.
