True Blood to lose Alan Ball after season five

The premiere of True Blood season five is still a few months away yet but it has been confirmed that showrunner Alan Ball is set to take a more reserved role in the hit HBO vampire series. Alan has some new projects lined up, so will be freeing up more time for himself, once True Blood season five has ended.

Ball explained, “When we extended our overall deal with Alan Ball in July 2011, we always intended that if we proceeded to True Blood's sixth season that Alan would take a supervisory role on the series and not be the day-to-day showrunner. If we proceed to season six, the show will remain in the very capable hands of the talented team of writers and producers who have been with the show for a number of years.”
 
It continued, “Alan will remain available as executive producer to consult and advise on True Blood and he will be free to develop new shows for both HBO and Cinemax.” Meanwhile, Alan Ball has admitted that True Blood will always hold a special place in his heart but that he was looking forward to moving on to new projects.
 
Alan added, “True Blood has been, and will continue to be, a highlight of not only my career but my life. Because of the fantastic cast, writers, producers and crew, with whom I have been lucky enough to work these past five years, I know I could step back and the show will continue to thrive as I look forward to new and exciting ventures.” True Blood season five is set to premiere on HBO on June 24.
