When the True Blood The reboot was announced, it was a surprise, to say the least. Fans weren’t expecting a reboot, and the show’s stars were equally shocked. None of the cast members seemed to know of a reboot of True Blood it was happening before it was announced, including Paquin and his co-star Denis O’Hare (Russell Edgington). Even the writer of the books True Blood relied on, Charlaine Harris, was left in the dark when it came to the reboot. This led some to believe that the original cast would not be involved in the reboot, despite the fact that the True Blood The ending left the door open for characters like Sookie Stackhouse and Eric Northman to return. However, it seems that the stories of these characters may have definitely ended.
According to Deadline, the original True Blood The actors are not expected to return for the reboot.

The news that the True Blood The cast not returning may be concerning, but there is still hope for the series. Aguirre-Sacasa proved to be a valuable asset to The CW, with the writer and producer successfully creating two shows for Archieverse: Riverdale Y Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
