‘True Blood’s’ creator Alan Ball: The show has a long future
Hollywoodnews.com: “True Blood” creator Alan Ball foresees several more seasons of the hit HBO vampire show.
This comes as no surprise since Ball’s previous HBO drama, “Six Feet Under” ran for five seasons.
“I think True Blood could run longer than Six Feet Under because of the supernatural element,” Ball told Fancast.
“There’s just so many areas to create stories that we didn’t have on Six Feet Under. Literally by the fourth season we started to hit the wall. It was like, ‘What about… Oh no, we did that in season two’. But because of the supernatural element in True Blood, I feel like it could continue much longer.”
However, once Ball jumps the shark in “Blood,” he’ll know when to stop.
“It will be the same thing as Six Feet Under,” he said. “Once it feels like it’s the right time to end the show then we’ll end it. Or I don’t know. This one’s much more successful for HBO than Six Feet Under was. So maybe they’ll say, ‘Oh no. We’ll just get somebody else to run it’.”
HBO has yet to announce a fourth season of “True Blood.”
