True Blood‘s upcoming sixth season is going to be extra Camp-y.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Anna Camp has signed on to reprise her role as anti-vamp puritan Sarah Newlin for a guest stint.
Camp, who’s currently juggling roles on Fox’s Mindy Project and CBS’ Vegas, floated the possibility of a Sarah comeback earlier this year, telling TVLine that her character has “a lot of unfinished business.”
No doubt at the top of her to-do list is confronting ex-husband and former Fellowship of the Sun co-head Steve (Michael McMillian), who is now an out-and-proud gay man and a vampire.
Don’t be surprised if she also finds time to reconnect with ex-flame Jason, which would put her at odds with his current love, Jessica. (Anna Camp going head-to-head with Deborah Ann Woll? Count. Us. In.)
True Blood‘s sixth season kicks off Sunday, June 16 at 9/8c.
Grab your summer calendar and take note: True Blood and The Killing are returning this June.
HBO announced Friday that True Blood‘s 10-episode sixth season — its first without exec producer Alan Ball at the helm — will bow Sunday, June 16 at 9/8c.
AMC, meanwhile, confirmed that death-defying serial thriller The Killing will launch its third season with a two-hour episode on Sunday, June 2 at 8/7c. The network’s press release once again reiterated that the new season (which AMC ordered only months after cancelling the series) will focus on a new case that, unlike the controversial Rosie Larsen mystery, “will be resolved over the course of ten episodes, ending with a gripping two hour finale.”
Per the release, Season 3 begins one year after the close of the Larsen case with Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos) no longer working as a detective. But when her ex-partner Stephen Holder’s (Joel Kinnaman) search for a runaway girl leads him to discover a gruesome string of murders that connects to a previous murder investigation by Linden, she is drawn back into the life she thought she’d left behind.
“We learned so much from the first two seasons of The Killing,“ AMC prez Charlie Collier said in a statement, “and are thrilled to be bringing it back with the elements that the fans loved.”
Bon Temps is about to bear witness to quite an anomaly: a vampire with more substance than style.
True Blood has tapped Brothers & Sisters alum Luke Grimes play the recurring role of James, a circa ’70s-made vamp who is smart, spiritual and emotionally deeper than any other bloodsucker we’ve seen before, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Picture a cross between Jim Morrison and Gary Clark Jr. with even more of a poet’s edge. The dude’s every women’s dream come true, and he doesn’t even know it.
Grimes, who spent two seasons on Brothers & Sisters as William Walker’s love child Ryan, is set to debut at the midway point of the HBO hit’s sixth season (which is slated to premiere in June).
Also joining the HBO smash in Season 6 is acting vet Rutger Hauer (as a mysterious figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason), Rubicon’s Arliss Howard (as Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell), Friday Night Lights grad Jurnee Smollett-Bell (as do-gooder Nicole), 90210‘s Amelia Rose Blaire (as Howard’s onscreen daughter) and House‘s Karolina Wydra (as a badass vamp).
Spending a year married to Gregory House can turn a woman into a real bloodsucker.
Case in point: Karolina Wydra — who played Dominika, the convenient bride of Hugh Laurie’s titular doc on Fox’s House — is joining True Blood‘s sixth season as a badass vampire, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Wydra’s recurring character, Violet, is described as a strong, sexy, possibly dangerous vamp on par with the Eric Northmans and Bill Comptons of the world.
Also joining the HBO smash in Season 6 is acting vet Rutger Hauer (as a mysterious figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason), Rubicon’s Arliss Howard (as Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell), Friday Night Lights grad Jurnee Smollett-Bell (as do-gooder Nicole) and 90210‘s Amelia Rose Blaire (as Howard’s onscreen daughter).
Wydra will next be seen in the sci-fi thriller Europa Report, to be released later this year.

Friday Night Lights grad Jurnee Smollett is Bon Temps-bound.
The actress is joining True Blood‘s upcoming sixth season as a series regular. Additionally, 90210‘s Amelia Rose Blaire has landed a recurring stint on the HBO hit.
Smollett, who will next been seen in NBC’s midseason thriller Do No Harm, will play Nicole, a do-gooder who possesses the rosy outlook of someone that life hasn’t beaten down yet. She’s not concerned with money and more concerned with the doing what’s right.
Blaire, meanwhile, will portray Willa, the daughter of Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell (played by Arliss Howard). She has long clashed with her father over vampire rights.
True Blood‘s sixth season is slated to premiere in June.
Two months after True Blood couple Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin had twins, their sexes have finally been revealed.
According to Life & Style, Paquin, 30, and Moyer, 43, welcomed a boy and a girl in September. “Anna is a natural mother, and Stephen is a doting dad,” the magazine adds. “He turns to mush around those kids
The pair met on the set of the HBO series and tied the knot in August 2010. The twins are their first children together. Moyer has two children, Lilac, 10, and Billy, 12, from prior relationships.
Move over, Bill. And Eric. And Alcide. There’s a new man in Sookie’s life — and he’s putting down stakes in Bon Temps.
True Blood has tapped English actor Rob Kazinsky (EastEnders) to join the Season 6 cast as a series regular, TVLine has learned.
Kazinsky — whose biggest TV credit stateside was an arc on Brothers & Sisters — will play Ben, a highly charismatic faerie who takes a liking to Sookie (and vice-versa) and helps Sookie and Jason delve deeper into the mystery of their parents’ murders.
This marks True Blood‘s second major Season 6 hire. As TVLine reported last month, acting vet Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner) has also come on board in the series regular role of Macklyn, a mysterious and sinister figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason. True Blood‘s sixth season is slated to premiere in June.
