"True Blood" creator Alan Ball said he’s in negotiations for a fifth season of the supernatural HBO show, and said he could see the show "going a few more seasons," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
But he said that after a fifth season, “I don’t know if I have any left in me after that. We’ll see.”
The series is based on a 13-book series featuring telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse. “I think if we did 13 seasons we’d have to address why vampires are aging,” Ball said. “Maybe there would be a bad batch of Tru Blood."
Ball has said previously that he doesn’t believe "True Blood" is dependent on his participation.
The fourth season of the HBO series debuts on Sunday.
