In the meantime, with its third season well underway and an ever-growing fan-base, “True Blood” is already keeping its viewers on tenterhooks.

Hit HBO television series “True Blood” cements its success with a Primetime Emmy nod – several, in fact – among them a nomination for Outstanding Drama Series. Whether or not the Southern Gothic vampire saga will win over the likes of “Mad Men” and “Lost” is something that viewers will find out in the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards, which is airing live on August 29.

In the meantime, with its third season well underway and an ever-growing fan-base, “True Blood” is already keeping its viewers on tenterhooks. New True Blood characters have been introduced, plots twisted further, and revelations are abounding – all in the first five episodes alone. Fan excitement is at a fever-pitch and even the critics are chiming in, with the Washington Post calling it “a complete and total turn-on” and the NY Daily News saying that it “continues to make all other TV vampire dramas look anemic.”

Speculation abounds as to the future fate of the series’ cast of idiosyncratic characters, with no less than director Scott Winant dropping hints. In an interview with E! Entertainment Television, Winant revealed that in True Blood Season 3 “the fewest actors die. I killed my share, but compared to season two, not as many."

However, actor Joe Manganiello, who plays new character Alcide, a werewolf, also told E! that while the deaths won’t be as numerous this season as in the previous two, they will be significant ones. “Maybe the least amount,” he said “but definitely important ones. There are some scripts that I read where I was shocked and went, ‘No way!’”
