[TV] Is “True Blood” Killing Off Eric Northman?

Season 6 of “True Blood” is set to premiere on Sunday, June 16 at 9/8c and apparently this is quite the violent year with a major paring down of the show’s central cast. The lastest rumor has it that Alexander Skarsgård may be departing the show around episode 6, his character of Eric Northam having been killed off.

This all comes from TVLine (who could have made up the rumor for all we know). Their Michael Ausiello addresses the rumors.” I can neither confirm or deny the rumors, but I can offer you two pieces of evidence that suggest such a twist is in the realm of possibility. The first one comes care of Joe Manganiello, who tells TVLine, “We’re getting to the point in the season now where people are starting to die. The table reads are starting to get smaller, and I’m sure they will continue to do that.” Exhibit B, meanwhile, arrives in the form of Episode 7′s title — “The Funeral.” Sorry I don’t have better news for you.

Hardly concrete stuff, though I would assume that it would have to be someone big for them to title an episode Funeral. I can also imagine just about anyone having been on the show for four or more years getting sick of it.

    I know its a rumor, but as someone who still enjoys the show, you really should have picked another headline and put a spoiler warning :(

    Agreed. This posting if true is a disgusting spoiler.

    Spoiler indeed. HOWEVER, this show is reaching it’s end soon anyway and if indeed true I hope Eric get’s a true death (no pun intended).

    NORTHMAN – at least get the character name right if you’re going to post a maybe spoiler in the headline.
