Denis O'Hare's gay vampire character on the HBO vampire drama True Blood
will return in season 4, and he's pissed.
Last season, O'Hare's flamboyant Russell Edgington, vampire king of Mississippi, was entombed in concrete after he lost his partner of 700 years, Talbot, played by Theo Alexander.
True Blood creator Alan Ball told 500 or so fans in Los Angeles on Saturday that the king is not dead, Entertainment Weekly reported.
“We specifically made the choice not to kill him,” Ball said. “I don't know when but there are definitely plans to bring him back.”
“He is gonna be pissed,” Ball added.
Last month, O'Hare told The Hollywood Reporter that producers have already approached him with the idea.
“Someone discussed a possible idea with me, which, of course, I can't tell you,” he said. “But it's a very cool idea. It's not far fetched, but it's not something that you would see coming.”
Also spilled on Saturday: Lafayette (played by Nelsan Ellis) and his lover Jesus, played by Kevin Alejandro whose character on the TNT crime drama Southland was killed off this season, will remain together in the coming season.
True Blood returns on June 13.
