Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and Jami O’Brien (NOS4A2) are attached as writers, with original creator Alan Ball also on board.
HBO is apparently in the early stages of crafting a reboot of True Blood alongside Riverdale creator Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Jami O'Brien, according to Variety.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina showrunner is collaborating with the vampire series's original creator, Alan Ball - who is slated to executive produce the revival.
At this time, none of the original cast members are slated to return, but that could change as development moves forward.
There's also no information on how this project will fit into the existing canon of the original series.
Based on Charlaine Harris' series of Southern Vampire Mysteries novels, True Blood was a steamy vampire drama that starred X-Men's Anna Paquin.
Paquin played the role of Sookie Stackhouse, a small-town waitress who finds herself swept up into a world of blood-sucking ghouls when she meets charismatic vampire Bill Comptom .
The series ran for a total of 80 episodes across seven seasons between 2008 and 2014 and took home numerous accolades throughout its run; including two Emmys, a Golden Globe and a GLAAD Media Award.
It also starred Alexander Skarsgård, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Lauren Bowles, Carrie Preston, Chris Bauer, Deborah Ann Woll, Joe Manganiello and the late Nelsan Ellis.
In September, HBO Max confirmed that writer-producer Aguirre-Sacasa is in charge of reviving a new “horror-tinged, coming-of-rage" version of Pretty Little Liars.
