Eric and BillGood news and bad news, Truebies: On the glass half full side of the equation, True Blood Season 6 started filming in January! Hooray! On the glass half empty side, we won't actually see those new episodes until sometime this summer (the premiere date hasn't been set just yet). Yeah, I'll go ahead and say it: Waiting SUCKS.

Back to the glass half full thing, though -- since Season 6 is finally in the works, the spoiler machine is once again in full gear! We've got the goods on everything from who's fanging who to who's brand new the upcoming season on True Blood (which sounds like it should definitely be worth that suck-ish wait!). Ready?

True Blood Season 6 Spoilers

Sookie Will Fall for a New Supe

Forget vampires and werewolves. Rumor has it Sookie's love interest this time around will be a fellow faerie named Ben (played by Rob Kazinsky of EastEnders).

Bill Will Be ... Different

Cast and crew are tight-lipped about whether Bill Compton will return in Billith form or not, but Alexander Skarsgard did hint that Bill would be "kind of dangerous now, even for an old, strong vampire like Eric." (As long as he's not covered in blood, yuck!)

Bon Temps Will Get Some Fresh Meat (Down, Jason!)

Uh-oh. New character Nicole Jannsen (played by Jurnee Smollett) is described as a "do-gooder" in her early 20's, "a true bleeding heart" who's “not at all concerned with money; she’s concerned with the common good and doing what’s right." Jason will destroy her, oh no!

Pam's Relationships Will Get "Complex"

So says Kristin Bauer van Straten:

“Things are a little complex, so we continue with the complexities in her relationships. Her relationship with Eric became strained during the season and they’re in a quite a jam … And she has this new progeny [Tara] and they’re both gay. I don’t know where that’s going to go, but Rutina [Wesley] and I are extremely curious! I don’t know what they’re going to do with it.”

We're pretty curious, too!

What are your predictions for True Blood Season 6?
