A Triumvirate of Evil: Coming to True Blood!

at .

Love her or hate her, Maryann provided quite the evil presence on True Blood last season.

How will she be replaced going forward? By multiple nefarious forces, says series creator Alan Ball.

In an interview with Michael Ausiello, Ball hypes the presence of three new character on season three as accounting for some serious trouble ahead:

“We have a triumvirate of evil this season,” he said. “I’m talking about Franklin Mott, Russell Edgington, and Debbie Pelt. They are all bad to the bone. They’re not just crazy, they’re evil.”

James Frain will portray Mott, a blood-sucking love interest for Tara; Denis O'Hare is on board as Edgington; and Pelt has not been cast yet. Nevertheless, the latter's role has already been increased.

“We actually beefed up Debbie,” Ball said of Alcide's ex-girlfriend. “She’s going to be in more episodes, so maybe that will have an impact on [what actress] we can get for her, which is a big question right now."
