Comic-Con 2009: Charlaine Harris and Alan Ball Join Forces for 'True Blood' Panel
Fans of the Sookie Stackhouse series as well as fans of the True Blood series were pleased to see both powerhouses on stage Saturday night. Charlaine Harris, writer of the Sookie Stackhouse novels joined Alan Ball, creator of the HBO hit True Blood joined forces to explain the upcoming adventures of Sookie, Bill, Eric, Tara, Sam, and Lafayette. One thing was made clear (SPOILER ALERT), the Bill, Sookie, and Eric love triangle will play out just as it is written in the novels.

For those of you that haven't read the novels, that shouldn't spoil much. For those of you that have, you know what I mean. Fans were chomping at the bit to find out what would happen and that's a pretty clear indicator.
With the second season already wrapped, Alan Ball did mention what he's most excited for in season three: Werewolves. Once again, not a shock to fans of the novels but an exciting piece of news, nonetheless.

Speaking of the novels, Charlaine Harris just signed a contract for three more books. When asked if the True Blood series would affect the direction she goes, she said not at all. According to her, she views True Blood as book's past and they have no affect on where she is with Sookie and gang now.

Things fans can look forward to for the rest of the season: The Eric, Bill, Sookie love triangle will play out, Sam will go head to head with someone, Jessica will continue to push Bill's limits, and Eric might have his eye on Lafayette.

Overall, True Blood season two promises to be scandalous and exciting. Check out HBO's Comic Con preview here. Or just check out part one of the panel below.
