Bon Temps, Baby! HBO Announces Premiere Dates For 'True Blood,' 'Entourage' & 'Curb Your Enthusiasm'

It’s time to get ready for some pulpy, racy, vampire action — “True Blood” will return for its fourth season on HBO on June 26.

The network announced the return date of the Alan Ball creation (based on the “Sookie Stackhouse” novels by Charlaine Harris) on Friday.

Sookie (Anna Paquin) and the gang – including vampire sheriff Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) will hit the small screen at 9 PM ET/PT.

As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, “True Blood” Season 4 filming is in full swing and major changes are afoot. In addition to witches, ghosts will be a new fixture on the scene. It will also be the season of Eric.

“I don’t think it’s a secret that he gets amnesia this season,” Alexander previously told Access, as the “True Blood” cast hit PaleyFest 2011 earlier this month. “A witch casts a spell and he doesn’t know who he is.

“I don’t want to reveal too much, but he’s kind of like a very big baby suddenly, he doesn’t know who he is and he needs protection suddenly and you haven’t seen that before,” the tall Swede added.

In related news, the eight and final season of “Entourage” premires on Sunday, July 24 at 10:30 PM ET/PT.

Additionally, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” returns for its eight season on Sunday, July 10 at 10 PM ET/PT.
