On Sunday's season finale of True Blood, a fully nude Eric burst into flames, seemingly ending his vampire life. But True Blood without Eric would hardly feel like True Blood at all! After days of anxiety, now one can rest easy: Eric will be back next season. "I can tell you that Alexander Skarsgard is going to be a part of the next season of True Blood. He will be a series regular," showrunner Brian Buckner tells TVLine. "I'm not going to take Alex Skarsgard out of people's living rooms." That said, Eric is not doing so great, on account of having been engulfed by flames. "Pam has gone off in search of Eric, and maybe she’s going to be the one to find him, y’know?" Buckner says. Yeah, dude. We know.
