True Blood: Anna Paquin wishes upcoming HBO reboot well

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

In a recent interview with Collider, True Blood star Anna Paquin responded to the news of the upcoming HBO reboot of the hit vampire show, where she starred as the mind-reading small-town Louisiana waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Here's what she had to say:

We do live in an era of entertainment where the reboot and the sequel have become a currency. So, is it time? I don't know. That's really not my department. It was some of the best years of my life, but I don't think them continuing to tell those stories or continuing in that world really has anything to do with the thing that we created. That's its own special little entity that was ours and came with a whole family of cast and crew who are still in touch. We had a Cinco de Mayo lockdown Zoom with our cast and crew, and there were 75 people. We actually all are a family who has stayed in touch, and not just the actors. These are our people.

So, I wish them well. I don't know if they need us for anything. Aren't we all too old now? But it's a fun world. It's a supernatural world with endless possibilities. Of course, there's room to do more and to tell more stories within that universe. We don't own it.

Meanwhile, no official start or release date for the reboot – from Riverdale co-creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa – as of yet, but we'll keep you posted once more news comes in! Here's the official synopsis for the original show:

Small-town Louisiana waitress Sookie Stackhouse already is viewed as an oddball by her friends and neighbours, since she can read the minds of those around her. She doesn't exactly help her reputation, though, when she falls for Bill Compton, a 173-year-old vampire who has `come out of the coffin' along with many of his undead comrades now that a new synthetic blood has made it possible for vampires to survive without preying on humans. Still, the conservative locals aren't wild about mortal-vampire liaisons, especially Sookie's boss, Sam Merlotte, who carries a torch for her.

So what do you guys think? Fans of the original show? If so, will you give the new reboot a chance? Either way, sound off below!
