Fantasy: True Blood Season Two Update….

true-happy-cast2

SciFi Wire has an interview up with Carrie Preston (Arlene Fowler):

The show’s second season will also boast a bunch of new cast members, including Valerie Cruz, Anna Camp and Ashley Jones, as well as Battlestar Galactica‘s Michelle Forbes, Mehcad Brooks and Deborah Ann Woll.

“We just finished the fifth episode,” Preston said. “Starting the sixth one today out of 12, so we’re almost halfway through already.”

Following is an edited Q&A based on our exclusive interview. (Some minor spoilers ahead!)

Talk a little bit more about some of these supernatural elements we’re going to see in the show.

Preston: I don’t know if I’m at liberty to talk about it in detail, but, we are departing a bit from the books [the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris]. … So the writers have really taken the groundwork that they set in the first season and kind of launched from that, and they’re fleshing out characters that are minor in the books, and they’re … changing some plot things, and they’ve really made it their own. …

You’re going to see some characters doing things that you’re surprised at, which will be fun. So I think the show is going to kind of keep you on your toes, and there’s several different storylines that are spinning in the air. …
