……And in with the old! Hold onto your hats, people because True Blood has now lost another show-runner. It seems that Mark Hudis has been relieved of his ‘show-runner’ duties in favor of Brian Buckner, who has been there since the shows’s inception. It seems Hudis has passed the Buck (pun intended) or has been tossed out like yesterday’s garbage?
Mark Hudis has stepped down as showrunner of True Blood to focus on development under his overall deal with the network,” a spokesperson for the premium cable network said in a statement, referring to a two-year deal the writer/producer signed with the network last spring.
I don’t know about anyone else but that sounds to me as if he has been given the boot. One has to wonder if it is because he was either not towing the ‘Bill Compton’ line or it is really as they say. Of course this is all speculation on my part but given the complaints made by fans recently, maybe the powers that be are finally listening to those fans. Who I am kidding? If they had listened to us, the show would not be in the state it is in.
The one idea of Hudis that I did like was bringing things back to Bon Temps but he did not pay attention to my ‘less is more’ advice. I wonder whose fault that is…inquiring minds want to know? You can read the read the rest of this ‘breaking news’ here.
It all remains to be seen what this ten episode season will have in store but we shall see. Tune back here for the recaps & reviews this season because they are bound to be some ‘doozies’. You can continue to speculate in our forum about this topic as well, I am positive this will be the hot topic for a little while!
