Whilst new show-runner Mark Hudis has already given a clue to Sookie Stackhouse’s main story-line for True Blood Season 6 (trying to solve the mystery of her contract with Warlow) we have been waiting to find out what our main man, Eric Northman, is going to be getting up to. And over at the Sundance Film Festival, Alexander Skarsgard has finally given a little hint to Wetpaint Entertainment.
Wetpaint Entertainment: What can you tell us about Season 6 so far?
Alexander Skarsgard: I’ve only gotten the first two scripts, but from what I’ve read, it’s good stuff so far.
What should we expect?
There’s a big war coming up — a big war.
Will Bill be back?
Bill will be back, yes.
In the same form in which we’ve come to know him?
Ah, that I can’t say. I can’t say. But it will be good.
So war is coming to Bon Temps and it sounds like Eric Northman will be right in the middle of it. But who will be at war? The most likely scenario (following on from season 5) would be Humans v Vampires. A version of the books Fae War is also a possibility now we know that Niall is to make an appearance in Sookie’s life. Or perhaps it will be Good Vamps v Bad Vamps, with Eric and Bloody Bilith lining up on opposing sides? All we know is if Mr Northman needs any help carrying around his big viking sword, we’ll be happy to volunteer!
Don’t forget to let us know what you think about Alex’s first hint about Season 6, and who you think might be going to war. And don’t forget to cross your fingers that they will still find time for some Eric and Sookie Loving in the middle of the upcoming chaos!
