True Blood executive producer Brian Buckner has promised fans of the HBO vampire drama it will be condensing the number of story lines. During a San Diego Comic-Con panel, Buckner said his goal "goal is to get all these people living under the umbrella of one story and one threat".

The threat may have been vampires initially yet the story lines have included a whole host of supernatural creatures including fairies, werewolves, shape-shifters and even occasionally a good old fashioned human murderer. Plot lines have run wild on a number of occasions, leaving viewers desperately trying to remember where we left a character; what creature they were and how on earth they survived a bullet wound to the head. 

Buckner went on to say that he wanted to "bring it in a little bit" in order to focus on what the show is "ultimately about", namely "the relationship between vampires and humans". The changes Buckner promises will definitely start next season although we will see some of them in place by the finale of season 6. 

Of the season 6 finale Buckner claimed "it's going to end awesomely". He went on to say "you're going to feel that the show is going to return to its roots and it's going to feel like it's about a gang of people in Bon Temps". 

Also on the panel were the Stackhouses - Sookie and Jason- Anna Pacquin and Ryan Kwanten; Nelson Ellis (Lafayette); Joe Mangeniello (Alcide); Sam Trammell (Sam) and Rob Kazinsky (Ben/Warlow). 

The Vampire contingent was represented by Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica) and Rutina Wesley (Tara Thornton). Stephen Moyer (Bill) and Alexander Skarsgard (Eric) did not attend the event. 

True Blood season 6 continues on Sundays at 9pm. True Blood, returning for its seventh series, has been renewed by HBO. It is due to air next summer.
