According to reports over at TV Line, it looks like HBO is wanting to get back into the vampire business. The premium cable network is looking to bring on Riverdale and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa to the network to reboot their hit series True Blood. Created by Alan Ball in 2008, the series ran for seven insane seasons before wrapping up in August 2014. Ball is reportedly in talks to return in an Executive Producer capacity.
Aguirre-Sacasa is said to be developing a pilot with NOS4A2 creator Jami O’Brien that would bring a new spin on the Charlaine Harris source material. The original series starred Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer as Sookie Stackhouse and Bill Compton alongside Alexander Skarsgård, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Lauren Bowles, Carrie Preston, Chris Bauer, Deborah Ann Woll, Joe Manganiello and the late Nelsan Ellis. There is no word yet on if any of the original cast members would return for this new iteration.
With the inherent darkness of his work on The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina that involves all manner of supernatural beings, Aguirre-Sacasa seems like the perfect choice to take a crack at this universe. Are you excited to revisit these characters again? Who would you want to see return? Let us know over on Twitter!
