‘True Blood’ Season 6: Anna Camp’s Sarah Newlin to Return!
As the wait for ‘True Blood‘s sixth season premiere on June 16 rolls on, we’ve seen more and more unfamiliar faces adding to the ranks, so isn’t it about time that changed? Good news! Much as Michael McMillian’s Steve Newlin returned in season 5, now his one-time bride Sarah Newlin will return as well. Find out what brings Anna Camp back to ‘True Blood’ season 6, and for how long inside!
From Russell Edgington to Steve Newlin, ‘True Blood’ season 5 brought back plenty of familiar faces. Now, as season 6 approaches its June 16 premiere, we have word of one more past character returning among the ranks. TVLine reports that Anna Camp will reprise her role as Sarah Newlin, pastor’s wife and one-time lover to Jason Stackhouse, for an undetermined number of episodes. Though mentioned, the character had not been seen since the third season, as her former husband went on to come out of both closet and coffin in season 5.
Along with the recent show-runner swap changing from Mark Hudis to Bryan Buckner, season 5 guest star and former ‘Last Resort’ star Robert Patrick has been upgraded to series regular, while ‘True Blood’ season 6 also features Luke Grimes as the “Jim Morrison of vampires,” ‘House‘s Karolina Wydra, Rutger Hauer as mysterious vampire Macklyn, ‘Rubicon’s’ Arliss Howard as Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell, and ‘Eastenders’ star Robert Kazinsky as a series regular and new Fae love interest to Sookie.
Few other details are available on the sixth season of HBO’s fang-banging hit, though it’s known that ‘True Blood’ season 6 will take place over 10 episodes, down from the usual 12, largely to accommodate series star Anna Paquin’s pregnancy with co-star Stephen Moyer.
