Return To Bon Temps With New ‘True Blood’ Reboot at HBO


It’s time to return to Bon Temps, Louisiana! TVLine has reported that HBO is developing a new iteration of its popular vampire series, True Blood, with Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa serving as executive producer, who will also co-write the pilot with NOS4A2 creator Jami O’Brien. O’Brien will also be an executive producer. Original series creator and showrunner Alan Ball will return as an executive producer.

The original True Blood, based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries novels by Charlaine Harris, ran from 2008-2014 on HBO and centered on the town of Bon Temps in Louisiana two years after the invention of a synthetic blood product “Tru Blood” allowed vampires to come out of their coffin and let their presence be known to mankind. It became HBO’s most-watched series at the time since The Sopranos. True Blood starred Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgård, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Retina Wesley, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Lauren Bowles, Carrie Preston, Chris Bauer, Deborah Ann Woll, Joe Manganiello and the late Nelsan Ellis.

In addition to the True Blood reboot, Aguirre-Sacasa is also developing a new Pretty Little Liars series as well as working on the newest season of Riverdale and preparing for the end of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which will premiere its final season later this month.

No cast or plot has been revealed for the reboot but the original True Blood can be streamed in full on HBO Max.
