True Blood

Here we come summer 2010!  HBO, not surprisingly, renewed it’s entire Summer line-up.  The two hour Sunday night block, anchored by vamp-phenom True Blood, has been turning in rather stellar ratings for the pay network.  We won’t say HBO was in desperate need for some hits, but I’m sure things haven’t been quite the same at network headquarters since the golden day of The Sopranos and Sex And The City.

True Blood will be returning for it’s third season, Entourage for it’s seventh and new comer Hung will be back for it’s sophomore year.

What is a bit of a surprise, is that while HBO has set plans for it’s entire summer 2010 schedule, it’s spring schedule is still a bit hazy.  The network will be on a big Tom Hanks kick when it airs Playtone-produced Big Love in January and then Hanks-Spielberg produced WWII miniseries The Pacific in March.  David Simon’s The Wire follow-up, New Orleans-based Treme, will be coming around in March.  It’s even possible that Martin Scorsese’s Boardwalk Empire, starring Steve Buscemi and Michael Kenneth Williams, will most likely be making an appearance as well.

HBO executives told AP the network hasn’t ruled out new seasons of In Treatment or The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, but nothing is set as of now.  Same goes for Flight of the Conchords, though we’re guessing Conchords will  be back eventually.

  2. […] It’s sad but true, folks: Season 2 of True Blood comes to an end this evening.  Judging by the intense cliff-hangers they end just regular episodes with, we’re expecting a doozy for the season finale.  It’ll be sad when the season ends – it’s been an exciting one for both the fans and HBO network, chock full of crazy gory, sexy badness and killer ratings.  The show is set to return for it’s third season in June of 2010.
