'True Blood' cast reveals details about coming season

True Blood

The fourth season of "True Blood," scheduled to debut in June on HBO, draws, unsurprisingly, from Charlaine Harris' fourth Sookie Stockhouse novel, "Dead to the World." Creator Alan Ball and the cast of "True Blood" dished on what to expect recently, the LA Times reports.

Of Sookie, Paquin said, "She's been on a bit of an adventure, she comes back. She's still very new to all this fairy stuff."

Paquin added that Sookie's still grappling with how to control her "microwave" fingers. As for her romantic prospects, she focused mostly on Joe Manganiello's werewolf Alcide ("Alcide doesn't turn into a ball of charred fire during the daytime, Alcide has that nice warm thing going, but Alcide comes with some baggage") and the resident Viking ("Eric's a little problematic," Paquin said).

Eric, though, is rather different than he's been in previous seasons. "He's completely lost and he doesn't know who he is. This powerful character is just gone," Skarsgard said, noting cryptically, "Eric needs help… there are a lot of friendly people in Bon Temps who are kind enough to help Eric."

In terms of the rest of Bon Temps residents, Rutina Wesley's Tara will find some stability after a harrowing couple of seasons, Nelsan Elils' Lafayette is "under the spell" of his boyfriend Jesus (Kevin Alejandro), Chris Bauer's Sheriff Andy Bellefleur will likely begin to experiment with V and Sam Trammell's shape-shifting bar owner Sam will get another chance at love, though the odds of things working out, he said, were "slim."
