True Blood Guaranteed Second Season

Amid mixed reviews for his southern vampire series, Alan Ball can at least rest easy for a spell knowing that True Blood, only two episodes deep in its first run, has already been picked up for a second season. Even after a 24% percent viewership jump for the second episode, the move probably says more about HBO’s currently anemic lineup than it does about the series – but still, the early renewal is a vote of confidence in the showrunner’s abilities and track record (Ball has both an Oscar and Emmy win under his belt). More on what seems to be a developing shift in HBO’s programming strategy in the coming weeks. (Variety)
