Hi, I'm Lauren Zima for About.com. Grab your stakes because today we're talking about the HBO series, True Blood.Based on a series of novels called The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris, True Blood is a dramatic TV series in which humans, vampires, and other supernatural creatures co-exist. The show premiered September 7th, 2008, and takes place in Bon Temps, Louisiana, shortly after the creation of a synthetic blood replacement by Japanese scientists.That creation leads to vampires coming out of the coffin and seeking equal rights amongst the human population. And that, of course, leads to complications — like discrimination against vampires and the occasional human becoming lunch.The series features a large cast but centers around a core group of characters, including Sookie Stackhouse, a human-fairy hybrid played by Anna Paquin, her brother Jason Stackhouse, her best friend Tara Thornton, and Bill Compton, a handsome vampire who fought in the Civil War. Beyond vampires and fairies, the show also features other supernatural creatures like werewolves, shapeshifters, and witches.Thematically the show tends to mirror a lot of contemporary issues like discrimination, the fight for equal rights, drug addiction, religion, etc. But it always does so with fang planted firmly in cheek — and plenty of silliness and gore to go around. Produced by Alan Ball, the show has won both a Golden Globe and an Emmy. Season 5 wrapped up in August of 2012. Season 6 is slated to start in the summer of 2013.And that's our look at the blood-thirsty world of True Blood. For more information, visit About.com.
