True Blood Will Take Another Bite With Season Five

We’ve found this season of True Blood to be a little..anemic, shall we say? But with a bevy of manflesh on display, and breakout star Deborah Ann Woll (Babyvamp Jessica) getting a meatier role, we’re still tuning in every week. We hope the bloodsucking drama takes a turn for the better, though, because HBO just announced they’re renewing Alan Ball’s vampire series for a fifth season, set to debut in summer 2012.

We’re not up on the Sookie Stackhouse books—and we’re pretty sure Ball has been diverging from the source material anyway—but if you can give us a tip on what’ll happen next, tell us in the comments. (Spoiler Alerts appreciated.)
