Jurnee Smollett Cast as Series Regular on True Blood
Two new faces are set to come on board True Blood Season 6.
Jurnee Smollett (pictured, Friday Night Lights) has been cast as a series regular, Deadline reports, and will portray the new character of Nicole Wright, described as someone unconcerned with money and focused on the common good.
Amelia Rose Blaire, meanwhile, will come on board as Willa Burrell, the daughter of Arliss Howard's Governor Truman Burrell and someone who has long clashed with her dad over vampire rights. Her role is recurring.
No premiere date has been set yet, but look for True Blood to return in June.
