'True Blood' stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer tease season four
When we last left the residents of Bon Temps in "True Blood," Russell Edgington, the vampire king of Mississippi, was buried under a slab of concrete after running on very violent and public rampage, Jason Stackhouse became in charge of the backwoods residents of Hot Shot and Sookie Stackhouse discovered the truth about vampire Bill Compton's interest in her fairy heritage and was later transported to fairy world.
OnTheRedCarpet.com caught up with "True Blood" stars, and real life husband and wife, Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin - who star as vampire Bill and Sookie - at a recent PaleyFest 2011 event honoring the cast of the wildly popular show. While the two were very coy about spilling any secrets on the show's upcoming season, Moyer did give one small hint.
"We go to a different place than we've ever been to before. The show starts place," Moyer says before hesitating, "The show doesn't start in Bon Temps."
"I think that's enough," Paquin told Moyer.
When asked if the couple enjoyed meeting fans of the show at events like PaleyFest, Paquin jumped in with an enthusiastic "Yes!"
"Because those are the people that watch our show, that ultimately, we do the show for," the actress added. "This is what it comes down to. We are in the entertainment business and it's the people that we are entertaining that we are ultimately working for. "
As for staying in touch with fans, Moyer says, "Neither of us Tweet, yet."
Paquin adds, "We do end up running into the same people at some of these sort of event s who will very loyally show up and cover what's going on with the show and the cast members."
The fourth season of "True Blood" is said to loosely follow the event of the fourth novel in The Southern Vampire Mysteries series, which the show is based off of, called "Dead to the World." Creator Alan Ball told the audience at PaleyFest that it will be a while before Bill and Sookie reconnect.
"[Bill's] betrayal [of Sookie] is so deep that I don't think she sees a way back from that. That's why we need 17 seasons," Ball said, according to , Entertainment Weekly.
What about Eric? Well according to Ball, he could be getting another visit from his maker Godrick. Though Godrick died in season two, Ball says, "One of the great things about having characters who have been around for thousands of years is that you can go back and see them at different points in history. Or they can appear in people's dreams. Vampires dream too."
Ball also addressed the fate of Russell Edgington saying, "We specifically made the choice not to kill him. I don't know when but there are definitely plans to bring him back. He is gonna be pissed."
Season four of "True Blood" will reportedly premiere on June 2011, meanwhile, catch our interview with Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer below.
