'True Blood' gets fourth season

Vampire lovers, it’s time to rejoice. HBO has renewed “True Blood” for a fourth season.

This isn't a total shocker, since critics are already salivating over the start of the third season. Entertainment Weekly called it “faster, sleeker, more vicious, more fun than it already was,” as well as “summer’s best TV,” and USA Today said what we all know - "True Blood" is “fabulously wild.”

“We’re looking forward to more chills from Alan Ball and his gifted team next year,” HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo said in a statement.

And with this show’s track record, chills are only half of what’s expected. Season two ended with the disappearance of Sookie’s super-hot, 173-year-old blood-sucking lover, Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), and season three, which started June 13, has Sookie frantically searching for him.

Thank goodness for a fourth season, because you know by the end of this season's 12 episodes, viewers will be blood-thirsty for more. Production on the new season will start early next year and air summer 2011.

    This show is great if don't mind bad writing and pathetic acting. Anna Paquin should be hit over the head with her Oscar.
