The popular HBO series is about to go into its highly anticipated 6th season. HBO has officially released two behind the scenes promos for the upcoming season which premieres June 16th. The season will have an abbreviated run of ten episodes, as opposed to the usual twelve, partially to accommodate the pregnancy of lead actor Anna Paquin, who is married to costar Stephen Moyer, as well as due to economic factors.
Season 6 will see the aftermath of the events of season 5 including Eric killing Russell Edgington, Andy delivering his faerie babies, and more importantly Bill drinking Lilith’s blood in front of Sookie and Eric only to rise a more powerful vampire than before semi-affectionately known as “Billith.”
The show follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, vampire Bill Compton (Moyer) and vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard). Based on the popular Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris, the Emmy-nominated hit drama series was created by Alan Ball, creator of HBO’s Emmy-winning series “Six Feet Under.”
