HBO's <i>True Blood</i> and <i>The Newsroom</i> Renewed

It may come as a shock to no one that True Blood has been renewed for another season, according to TV Line.True Blood’s “the wait is almost over” ad campaign isn’t exactly indicative of poor ratings, but HBO might be taking a small gamble on The Newsroom. The network must have faith that Aaron Sorkin and company can overcome any early criticisms to become a regular in HBO’s summer lineup.

Although not as memorable as Game of Thrones immediate second season renewal after airing its pilot, The Newsroom secures a future after premiering its second episode last night. True Blood, which will be missing its creator and producer, Alan Ball, will trudge forward to its sixth season.
