‘True Blood’ Final Season Adds ‘The Wolverine’ Star as Major New Villain
The most recent trailer for ‘True Blood”s seventh and final season kept shy of telling fans exactly what to expect this summer, though the town of Bon Temps seemed vacated, leaving the residents to turn on one another. Now, we may have a clue as to the major villain driving the final season story as ‘True Blood’ season 7 adds ‘The Wolverine‘ star Will Yun Lee to the cast.
Via Deadline, Lee will have a major recurring presence in season 7 as Texas-living Japanese businessman Mr. Gus,”whose bigger-than-life, urban cowboy demeanor nearly rivals the size of his large Stetsons.” Gus is also supposedly out for revenge and will stop at nothing to get it. Hmm, might another Texas native villain, who brutally murdered a Japanese businesswoman last season, have something to do with it?
Elsewhere, we know of ‘True Blood’ season 7 that Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) will indeed return, despite a seemingly fiery end teased in the season 6 finale. Anna Camp’s Sarah Newlin will return, joining ’90210′ alum Riley Smith and Nathan Parson, who’s replacing Luke Grimes. Storytelling will shrink to see more direct human-vampire relationships in light of the Hepatitis V threat, while more details and series regular ascensions have been outlined in our guide to ‘True Blood”s final season.
Well, what do we think? Could Mr. Gus head north to menace Bon Temps, as well? What do you think the biggest bad of ‘True Blood”s final season will be? Watch the trailer again below, and give us your predictions in the comments!
