'True Blood' Season 3: Alan Ball on Joe Manganiello as werewolf Alcide Herveaux

If you're one of those "True Blood" fans who thinks he knows who snatched vampire Bill Compton, think again.

"For people who read the book, they'll be surprised who kidnapped Bill," series creator Alan Ball tells Zap2It about the HBO series, which returns for its third season on Sunday June 13. "We definitely have used the plot from the book as a starting point, but we have done a lot differently as well. There's a lot of new stuff happening, a lot more about vampire politics and the introduction of werewolves into our world. And there's stuff going on in Bon Temps as well.

Without giving too much away, everybody's got their hands full, and everybody is being extremely tested by the circumstances of their lives."

It's not the first time Ball and his team have deviated from the best-selling Sookie Stackhouse mysteries by Charlaine Harris, which inspired the hit HBO show. Lafayette Reynolds, the cook at Merlotte's Bar, died at the end of Harris' first book yet he remains a popular mainstay of the TV series, played by Nelsan Ellis.
