HBO treats 'Newsroom,' 'True Blood' to new seasons

July 3rd, 2012 in News

NEW YORK (AP) - HBO says it's bringing back "The Newsroom" and "True Blood" for another season each.

HBO announced Monday that "True Blood," the network's hit vampire drama, will be coming back for a sixth season next year. Its stars include Anna Paquin (PA'-kwihn) and Stephen Moyer.

"The Newsroom," created and written by Oscar-winner Aaron Sorkin, won a green light for a second season after just two episodes have aired. Though getting mixed reviews from critics, the show attracted a healthy audience for its premiere, totaling 2.1 million viewers.

Set at a cable news network, "The Newsroom" features Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, Alison Pill and Sam Waterston.
