We already knew it was a foregone conclusion that HBO would be renewing “True Blood” for a fifth season after Alan Ball revealed that he’d closed his deal with the network, but official confirmation is always good. To celebrate more fangbanging in the months to come, how about a trio of clips from the upcoming Episode 44, entitled “Spellbound”?

True BloodPer Deadline HBO has renewed the hit show TRUE BLOOD for a 12-episode fifth season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. Created by Alan Ball, the series will begin production of new episodes later this year in Los Angeles, with a Season Five debut set for summer 2012.

“I am thrilled that TRUE BLOOD continues to enjoy a phenomenal reception from both subscribers and critics,” noted Lombardo. “Alan Ball and his gifted team have devised the greatest thrill ride on TV.”

“I remain amazed and delighted by the enthusiasm of our viewers,” says Ball. “I can’t imagine having more fun than this.”

We have to admit that while this season got off to a rocky start, we’re starting to have a lot more fun ourselves since the battle between vampires and witches has started to heat up. Let us know if you agree!
