There's never a dull moment in Sookie Stackhouse's hometown of Bon Temps, La. Vampires are trying to live among humans, and now the weres are following them — werewolves, werefoxes and werepanthers, including Sookie's brother, Jason. Sookie's vampire boyfriend/husband, Eric Northman, is being threatened by his maker, the Roman Appius Livius Ocella. Veterans of the recent Fae War are still around, and they're not happy with Sookie. Claude, Sookie's sizzlingly sexy fairy cousin, has decided she needs protection, so he announces that he's moving in. Fairy socks in the living room, an overcrowded vampire guest room in the cellar and a Tabasco-dash of supernatural Southern politics: It's another delicious installment of Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire Mysteries.

God knows it's not easy being Sookie Stackhouse. The telepathic barmaid at the center of so many supernatural occurrences in the sleepy burg of Bon Temps, La., seems to spend most of her time fending off murderous attackers or the romantic advances of vampires, werewolves, shape-shifters and the like. These days, things might even be more complicated for Sookie, who stars not only in bestselling author Charlaine Harris' successful series but also in HBO's hit show "True Blood," which returns for its fourth season Sunday.

With the “true death” about to strike down all the inmates at notorious Vamp Camp, rivals Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) come to the rescue in “Life Matters,” Episode 69 of HBO's “True Blood.” In the previous episode, Eric drained nearly all the blood from Warlow (Rob Kazinsky), an ancient faerie/vampire who can walk the earth day or night. Now vampire Bill wants what's left of that blood to save his imprisoned subjects. But that's a nonstarter for Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin)

Sookie Stackhouse's powers might be even more limited than she thought: HBO's "True Blood" saw a big ratings dip in its sixth-season premiere Sunday. An average of 4.5 million viewers tuned in at 9 p.m., according to Nielsen. That was a 13% decline compared with last season's rollout. However, otherworldly waitress Sookie (Anna Paquin) and her vampire pals squared off against tough competition Sunday, with the NBA Finals drawing a huge crowd on ABC (total-viewer numbers will come out Tuesday)

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer have plenty of heat as an on-and-off fictional couple on "True Blood," and now the married costars have something to show for it: They're expecting their first baby. Paquin and Moyer will welcome a little one come fall, the Ministry confirmed with a rep for the actress. Oscar winner Anna and Englishman Stephen met on the set of the HBO vampire hit. They wed on the beach in Malibu in 2010. This is the first child for Paquin; Moyer has a boy and a girl from a previous marriage.

Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) wrestles with an incredibly huge decision in “Dead Meat,” Episode 68 of HBO's “True Blood.” If Sookie persuades faerie/vampire Warlow (Rob Kazinsky) to donate his sunlight-resistant blood, her imprisoned vamp friends will escape a fiery “true death.” But in exchange for Warlow's cooperation, Sookie must marry him and lose her mortal self. "If I do this, I want you to be mine -- forever,” insists Warlow, who's loved Sookie for nearly 6,000 years and understandably can't wait much longer to tie the knot.

Playing an aloof, sexy Viking vampire sheriff on HBO's "True Blood" requires many things of Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard, not least among them a willingness to endure long stretches of night shoots and a commitment to spend at least a certain amount of time in the gym. Anyone who's watched the show, which returns for its fourth season Sunday, knows that virtually every major character is afforded plenty of screen time wearing not much at all. ...

Late in the third season of HBO's sexy hit series "True Blood," aggrieved vampire king Russell Edgington (played by Denis O'Hare) walks onto the set of a news broadcast and rips the spine out of the unsuspecting anchorman on air. Clutching dripping viscera, he stares into the camera and tells the viewing audience just how dangerous his kind can be. In case anyone hadn't gotten the message. Over on AMC, the populace is threatened by an equally terrifying menace: roving masses of zombies.

Remember how “True Blood” ended last August? The Vampire Authority compound is in flames. Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) drinks all the sacred blood supposedly preserved from Lilith (Jessica Clark), the mother of all vampires. Then Bill gruesomely dies the “true death” and reincarnates as a far-more-powerful version of who knows what. Has he become a god? A devil? That's the burning question as Season 6 of the popular HBO series launches with Episode 61: “Who are You, Really?

In her worst moments, Sookie Stackhouse can be incredibly frustrating, short-sighted, short-tempered and eager to rush to judgment before she has all the facts. But she's a fun drunk. So we learn on Sunday's episode of “True Blood,” when she drowns her sorrows after being pushed to the brink of despair. Confessing to your cop brother and the ex-boyfriend of the woman you murdered that you have, in fact, killed someone, then nearly dying after your cursed car speeds straight into a tree can have that effect.

When IT comes to on-screen romances, Anna Paquin has found that true love hurts. It can even be deadly. In the "X-Men" franchise, Paquin played Rogue, a mutant superhero who absorbed the life force of anyone she touched -- a condition that made just holding hands a lethal proposition. And now in HBO's new drama "True Blood," which premieres Sunday, the 26-year-old actress stars as the plucky, upbeat Sookie Stackhouse, a virginal waitress who has a potentially fatal attraction to a mysterious, brooding vampire (Stephen Moyer)
