    Welcome to Bon Temps, Louisiana

    Entire Cast True Blood is a supernatural drama on HBO based on the Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Series of novels published by Charlaine Harris. Audiences are transported weekly to a place called Bon Temps, Louisiana where nothing is as it seems. Vampires, shape shifters, werewolves, witches, demons, and even fairies exist in this small relatively close-knit town.

    The show is centered on the daily events of Sookie (Anna Paquin) a telepathic waitress working at Merlotte’s Bar & Grill. She falls in love with a vampire named Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and her life changes forever. Best friend Tara (Rutina Wesley) and Sookie’s brother Jason (Ryan Kwanten) join her in the constant struggle to adjust to the bizarre events unfolding in their quiet hometown. The storyline mixes gothic romance with comedic one-liners that sets it apart from traditional horror on television. It tackles a diverse range of topics like fetishes, sexuality, prejudice, rape, religion, war, and politics while maintaining a mystical fantasy element. The violence and bloody sadistic sex scenes have made the show somewhat controversial increasing its overall allure. Adding to the vampire phenomenon it reaches women as well as men in the 18-34 age demographic. There’s something about True Blood that captivates viewers.
