Bloys’ assertion on the cancelation of the reboot is remarkably transient given the way in which “True Blood” as soon as held the premium TV panorama by the throat. When “True Blood” premiered in 2008, the medium was in a little bit of a inventive rut. Juggernauts like “The Wire,” “The West Wing,” and “The Sopranos” had all come to an finish throughout the previous two to 3 years. “Mad Males” had already begun its meteoric rise on the AMC community, and “Breaking Unhealthy” was about to chart the identical trajectory, however no sequence had but stepped as much as fill the campy aspect of the TV void. 

Exhibits like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Charmed” earned legions of followers for combining intercourse with silliness and supernatural-tinged darkness with parodic, camp lightness, and neither sacrificed good writing to ship the enjoyable. Plus, the place a lot “status TV” not solely facilities on male protagonists however makes use of a grim, rational, and humorlessly masculine aesthetic, “True Blood” was like an oasis of horny pulp in a desert of Very Severe Males. And since it was a product of Alan Ball, the mastermind behind “Six Ft Beneath,” one of many new millennium’s best TV reveals, it by no means felt like simply a tasty trifle. There have been thrilling character arcs, intriguing political analogues, and a few really fabulous world-building.

Possibly it was too quickly for a reboot. Possibly the time of the vampire has really come and gone. I hope not less than that “True Blood” will get the laurels it deserves ultimately, ultimately — reboot or no reboot.
