HBO orders second season of True Blood.

HBO has ordered a second season of True Blood, the series based on the novels of Charlaine Harris.
Anna Paquin stars as telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse and Stephen Moyer is Bill Compton, her vampire boyfriend.

The series debut netted over four million viewers and the ratings increased for the second episode.

The series is set in Lousiana in a world where vampires are out in the open, thanks to a synthetic blood drink (Tru Blood) that allows them to exist without munching humans.
