'True Blood' Season 6: Joe Manganiello, Mark Hudis Talk Racier New Season


The vampires and werewolves are headed back to Bon Temps this summer, and they're cranking up the intensity.

"True Blood" has found a new showrunner in co-executive producer Mark Hudis, and not only is he shaking up Season 6 -- Spoiler TV reports that there will be a prostitute who earns cash by letting vampires feed on her and a few twentysomething "Occupy Wall Street" types -- but he's not too worried about spoilers, apparently.

“Certainly [Bill (Stephen Moyer)] is not going to be the Bill we know and love,” Hudis said, according to Wetpaint. “He’s going to have more bite, no pun intended.”

Joe Manganiello, who plays the werewolf Alcide on the series, has started spilling the Season 6 beans as well.

“[It’s] racier,” he told Access Hollywood. “My character’s taken over the wolf pack, so as an alpha, and a pack of dogs, you gotta regulate, you gotta set it straight with everybody so there’s some violence. It’ll be fun.

“This is Season 6 and the first couple scripts I read -– I think they’re doing a lot of stuff that they maybe held back on the past couple years,” he added. “They’re pretty wild. I think it’s going to be a pretty wild season.”

Season 6 of "True Blood" will air on HBO this summer.
