Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgård and Joe Manganiello
In case you haven't noticed, the men of True Blood don't mind taking off their clothes. During wardrobe changes for this cover shoot at the Good Luck Bar in Los Angeles, they casually stripped down to their skivvies in a supersize RV, parked curbside, that doubled as a dressing room. One visitor wasn't exactly sure how to keep from staring. As executive producer Alan Ball puts it, "They're all insanely beautiful."
But it's not just those hot bodies that...
What better time than summer to get your TV freak on — and what more out-there vehicle to indulge your wilder appetites than the fourth season of HBO's supernatural smorgasbord True Blood, which gets off to one of its freakiest starts yet.
"TV sure hasn't gotten better in the last year," gripes True Blood's spunky heroine Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) after returning to Bon Temps from an unsettling detour to sparkly, sinister Fairy Land. Maybe not, but True Blood has...

True Blood has brought witches, werewolves and vampires to life over the last three seasons, but everything you think you know about the supernatural beings will be upended this season.
"Everything you thought you can count on, you can't," executive producer Alan Ball says. "Vampires are not stronger than certain humans, shapeshifters can do things other than shift and there are ghosts."
Here are 10 things we do know about what's coming up, straight from the cast of True Blood:

As if Sookie (Anna Paquin) didn't have enough problems, True Blood's fourth season will see her in charge of a very vulnerable Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) after he loses his memory, the result of a run-in with some dangerous witches.

Are you suffering from True Blood withdrawal?
It's been far too long since True Blood was on the air, and the cast of HBO's vampire series feels your pain. Sam Trammell, Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and the rest of the gang from Bon Temps are here to give you a quick fix with TBWithdrawal.com, where True Blood addicts finally have a place to argue Team Bill vs. Team Eric or to profess your love for the werewolves over the vampires.
Check out the very serious PSAs below, filmed by the cast just for you:

True Blood's back — and creepier than ever!
After last week's debut of the first three minutes, which saw Sookie (Anna Paquin) arrive in the mysterious world of fairies, the former Merlotte's waitress is becoming aware that this magical land isn't all perfection and glowing fruit. There's evil afoot — but that's just another day for Sookie Stackhouse, right?

Check out the first six minutes of the new season, premiering June 26 at 9/8c on HBO:
It's a very different world for vampires when True Blood returns for Season 4 this summer.
In the wake of Russell Edgington's on-air newscaster feast, the vampires must win over humans one fanged-smile at a time. (This also means that no dead humans are allowed.) Plus, now the blood thirsty vampires of Bon Temps must contend with a new coven of witches. But they're not your...
Waiting sucks, but the wait for the fourth season of True Blood is almost over.
In the new trailer for Season 4, we see Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) spending a lot more time together wearing a lot less clothing. Fans of the warm-blooded guys don't need to worry though since there seems to be plenty of shirtless Jason (Ryan Kwanten) and Alcide (Joe Manganiello) coming up, too.
Trying to get True Blood executive producer Alan Ball and the cast of the HBO series to give away anything about the upcoming fourth season is not easy. Oh, but how they love to tease! During Saturday's PaleyFest panel, we heard all about fairies, demon babies, amnesia (poor Eric!) and why — brace yourselves — Sookie and Bill are doomed for the time being.
Bill's not getting back into Sookie's, er, good graces any time soon. It's going to take a long while for her to get past Eric's...
True Blood's sexy trio made a splash on the cover of Rolling Stone last month when they showed up naked and covered in blood. While it may look like Alexander Skarsgård is the third wheel next to married co-stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, he jokes that's not the case.

"They weren't married at the time, so it wasn't serious back then," Skarsgård says with a devilish grin. And with that, Sookie and Eric fans go wild.
