"True Blood" creator Alan Ball said he’s closed a deal to return to the HBO drama for a fifth season, reports the Los Angeles Times’ ShowTracker blog.
“There will be an end for me on the show at some point. I just closed a deal to do another season. I don’t have any desire to leave because I’m having more fun than I’ve ever had in my life," Ball said Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour.
HBO hasn’t yet officially announced the show’s fifth-season renewal, although Ball said his plans for the next season include an exploration of the show’s mythology and a look at how one of the vampires was created, the story says.
