After its tremendous success, HBO announced that they have renewed “True Blood” for a sixth season.

The vampire series is currently airing its fifth season, which premiered with more than six million viewers across both of its broadcasts.

Although the show will lose its main runner Alan Ball after this season’s finale, it is still expected to be one of the highest-rated cable shows in its Sunday slot.

The staple HBO vampire series, which stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard, will still keep Ball on as executive producer, but Mark Hudis will take over showrunner duties for season six.
