With all the casting rounds these past couple of months, it’s safe to assume that True Blood season 3 is going to be daring, bolder, and more kick-ass than ever before. Just think about it, season 3 will feature three big baddies just to dethrone last season’s main villain, maenad Maryann.

“We have a triumvirate of evil this season,” exec producer Alan Ball reveals to Entertainment Weekly‘s Michael Ausiello. “I’m talking about Franklin Mott, Russell Edgington, and Debbie Pelt. They are all bad to the bone. They’re not just crazy, they’re evil.” For more information about these villains, check out our True Blood spoiler section.

Among the three antagonists, Alcide’s psycho ex-girlfriend, Debbie Pelt, who is yet to be cast, will have a bigger role than what was originally planned by Ball.  “We actually beefed up Debbie,” he says. “She’s going to be in more episodes, so maybe that will have an impact on [what actress] we can get for her, which is a big question right now.”

Meanwhile, True Blood fans can look forward to another side plot going into the third season of the HBO vampire series. It turns out Eric has an ongoing vengeance plot that will gradually unfold.

“I’d say it’s about revenge,” said Alex Skarsgard, who plays Eric on True Blood. “He will continue to explore the whole Sookie thing and what that’s all about. He’s trying to figure out what’s different about her. He’s intrigued by that. And in addition to that, there’s something that happened a thousand years ago that he’s still carrying in his heart. All I’ll say is he’s trying to avenge someone.”
