Blimey that was fast! Second season of True Blood ordered!

It seems that new Vampire series True Blood has torn out the viewing jugular after only two episodes. It seems that the bosses at HBO are loving the show and have already decided to pick it up for a second season. According to Hollywood Reporter the second season will air next summer.

Michael Lombardo president of HBO’s programming group and West Coast operations.

“It says, ‘It’s OK to get hooked on the show, it’s coming back.’ “

Cheers mike, thanks for giving me the all clear to get hooked… what a nice guy. He goes on to also say.

“We’re in a business where we have to believe in the show — and the show is fantastic,”

Ah if only someone had told Fox that before they pulled plug on Firefly…yes that still hurts.

    I couldn’t agree with you more on Firefly. It was a huge loss. In a way, I hope to capture some of Firefly, Buffy and Battlestar Gallactica in True Blood. I’m hooked.

    True Blood will never have the same mystery though, the story is written down in a romance novel. Really… it follows Dead Until Dark.

    Speaking of romance novels – The reminiscent “cliffhanger ending” will grow old after a while. We can always turn the page right away, but we can’t skip ahead to next Sunday. Will a TV show survive two seasons ending every week like that? dun-dun-dah… stay tuned. Or buy the book.

    BTW- How do Charlene’s readers feel about the longevity of the show? Will they stay awake every Sunday and pay for HBO to see actors recreate what they’ve already read? dun-dun-dah…
