At the Television Critics Association's press tour this week, HBO has officially confirmed they're bringing back True Blood for a season three. Gaining fan momentum on the network's Sunday night line-up, this second season has averaged 3.8 million viewers (11.2 when you add repeats, DVR and On Demand viewing).
A few weeks ago in an Entertainment Weekly feature story, Alan Ball indicated that he has a specific direction in mind for the third season but he won't go into the details yet with the current season still airing through September.
As part of the announcement, HBO also confirmed they'll be bringing back Hung for a second season and Entourage for a seventh. All three are expected to air next summer.
