A bit of news broke today that I do not agree with at all. In fact, I feel that it is way too soon for a reboot of this show. But, ‘Riverdale’s’ Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa is looking at rebooting the popular HBO Series True Blood. And show creator Alan Ball also seems to be on board for this reboot.
The show is loosely based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlene Harris. The show debuted on HBO in 2008 and came to an end in 2014. Fans of the show claim the finale is one of the worst in television history.
I am not sure True Blood should be on the list of things to be rebooted right now. The show ended 6 years ago. And while the taste of that ending has not left our mouth, it seems this is just a cash grab because the show still has mass appeal. Instead of a reboot, it might be a good idea to do a movie to say we are sorry to the fans of the show.
No news on if any of the original cast will return to the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps. Maybe, this will work, but I have my doubts. But, that theme song is one of the best of the modern television era.
