In the backwoods Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the mystery surrounding the serial killer has finally been solved. But just as things are settling down, deadly new twists threaten Sookie Stackhouse and everyone around her.

Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humour, the show takes place in the not-too-distant future, when vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. The show follows the romance between waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people's thoughts, and her soul mate, 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). Alan Ball (creator of the Emmy®-winning HBO series 'Six Feet Under') created and executive produces the show, which is based on the best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novles by Charlaine Harris.

Other cast regulars on True Blood include: Australia's own Ryan Kwanten as Sookie's brother Jason; Rutina Wesley as her best friend Tara Thornton, Sam Trammell as Sookie's goodhearted boss Sam Merlotte; Carrie Preston as Sookie's fellow waitress Arlene Fowler, William Sanderson as Sheriff Bud Dearborne; Chris Bauer as Detective Andy Bellefleur; Todd Lowe as Terry Bellefleur; Michelle Forbes as Maryann Forrester; Alexander Skarsgard as Eric, a Nordic vampire; Deborah Ann Woll as Jessica, a new vampire under Bill's supervision; Mehcad Brooks as Eggs 'Benedict' Talley'; Michael McMillian as Rev. Steven Newlin; Mariana Kloveno as Lorean; Anna Camp as Sarah Newlin; and Jim Parrack as Hoyt Fortenberry.
