True Blood Exclusive: Look Who's Returning!

You already know that True Blood‘s upcoming fourth season will feature witches, werewolves and more Nan Flannigan. But here’s what I’m fairly certain you don’t know: It’ll also mark the return of vampire legend Godric!

TVLine has exclusively learned that Allan Hyde will reprise his role as Eric’s late, forever young-looking maker when the HBO drama resumes this summer.

The duration and exact timing of his stint are unknown. It’s also unclear what form the onetime vampire sheriff of Area 9 will take given that he succumbed to the worst sunburn in history during season 2. (He returned briefly from the great beyond in the season 3 finale to deliver a message to Eric.)

Blood EP Alan Ball isn’t offering too many clues, except to say that fans will see “a different side of Godric.”

  • So they got werewolves, witches, shapeshifters, vampires….cool. Why not just bust out a Necromancer and bring him back from the dead instead of having him as a ghost or flash backs? Come on now Godric(Allan Hyde) Boosted True Blood ratings by a WHOLE lot and HBO would be INSANE not to bring him back as a main character. Hmmm maybe they should just ask Charlaine Harris of they can bring him back since she did write the books and she(I Think anyways) does work with Allan Ball. Problem solved

  • He returns as Erics conscience. Its not like he’ll be a main character but he’ll be in a few episodes at least once

  • Do you think it’s possible,as this season IS about witches that Godric could be brought back into existence with magic and maybe won’t be happy about it,hence the comment about us seeing a different side of him?That would make things interesting…

  • Just because the books show Sookie and Eric together don’t mean that has to happen in the show.. if everything was the same as the book it would make the show to predictable and you would know what happens.. what good would that do.. it would be boring because you would already know what is going to happen.. likewise Eric does not have to be with Sookie.. in the books that maybe but on the show it can turn a different direction.. i prefer Sookie and Bill to be honest im not much of an Eric fan glad to see the return of Godric though. :)

  • First of all he can’t return once he has met the son and he was NEVER Eric’s maker… You meet Eric’s maker in the 10th book. Why change something that was awesome in the book, I don’t understand…. Stick to the books please…

  • I love Eric he is a strong Vamp but also deep down very noble. I hope Sookie wides up with him, Bill drives me nuts I want to stake him!!!I really didn’t like the scene where Eric was going to be with the kings boyfriend. He is far to manly to do that, even though I now that Godrig abused him in that way, it was never his choice.

  • i think youll see a evil side of Godric maybe he had a twin that got turned at the same time he did, but heres a twist Godric’s twin is evil & nothing like good Godric but thats just my throey. What do y’all thing evil twin or just a twin as Godric or takin over someones body? I think whitches can do that to the vampires just switch em out into different bodies. What y’all evil twin or whitches with bad karma???

  • I am sure they are going to go into Eric and Godric’s past, showing Godric as how he was when he was younger. A lot more violent and demonish– the inspiration behind Erics attitude.
