As is always the case since its debut, “True Blood” had a panel at Comic-Con 2011, and as is also always the case, the cheers for Alexander Skarsgard made it hard to get anything done. He is a hottie. But we still managed to get a few goodies for you, fang fans.

At the panel, the show’s creators and stars debuted a trailer for the coming weeks’ episodes, plus dropped a few tidbits for the latter half of Season 4. First off, guess who is going to be taking a shower together? Eric and Sookie. Cue the squealing and sighs.

Secondly, the witches aren’t goin’ anywhere and having a common enemy will unite the Bon Temps fangers. “The entire community is pretty much under siege during this season. I
think the vampires will stick together to fight the common enemy,” says creator Alan Ball.

And finally, for fans of Charlaine Harris‘ series of novels on which the show is based, the show is going to continue to stray further and further from the source material – for two reasons. Firstly, because the books are Sookie’s story and the show explores more than just her story and secondly, because then there would be no surprises for the viewers. But creator Ball assures us the show will always stay true to “the spirit of the books.”

“True Blood” airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
