Per Ryan Kwanten, True Blood season 4 will pick up a year after the events of season 3. However, previously Ausiello asserted that season 4 will pick up immediately where season 3 left off, leaving us to wonder about the timeline. Alan Ball has declared this the season of the witch in several interviews. The role of Hallow, a necromancer and an important part of the witch wars in the books, is being cast for season 4 and we know that Holly returns to play a role in the action.

Alan also stated in the little clip after the finale that we’ll meet other supernatural beings in season 4. Something besides vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, fairies, and witches? We’ll also see a major upheaval in the world of vampire politics, what with Russell being MIA for the time being.
