True Blood is getting a reboot, and that sound you hear is thousands of gays screaming in unison. The horror series aired on HBO for seven seasons, kicking off in 2008 and ending in 2014, and proved a huge hit with LGBT+ audiences for its camp, over-the-top style.
The series, based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris, followed telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse in the fictional town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, as she falls in love with vampire Bill Compton.
Now, the series is set to get the reboot treatment, with True Blood‘s queer creator Alan Ball set to return as executive producer, sources told TV Line. HBO is set to bring True Blood back to screens with Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa attached as executive producer. He is also set to write the pilot alongside Jami O’Brien.
