True Blood creator Alan Ball has revealed that he has cast a new female werewolf named Debbie Pelt.
According to TV Guide, the character will debut in the third episode of season three, which airs later this year in the US.
He said: "[She is] a badass bitch you do not want to get on the wrong side of. She is not going to like Sookie."
The HBO series, which has won several awards, has been filming its third season since early December.

True Blood actress Rutina Wesley has suggested that the vampire series may run for 'six seasons or more'.
The actress, who stars as Sookie Stackhouse's best friend Tara in the supernatural drama, told SciFiNow that fans will be "dying to watch for a long time".
"I think it will run for as long as… I mean there are nine books out there, and [Charlaine Harris] is going to do three more, but I don't know if we will [run] that long.
"People seem to think that True Blood is going to be one of those shows that will run for five or six seasons if not more."
She added: "It's going to depend on audience ratings and stuff like that, but I can't imagine it not running for a long time because the books are just so juicy and Alan Ball has also made everything so vibrant, colourful and imaginative, and so I think it's going to be a show that people are going to be dying to watch for a long time."
Wesley attributed True Blood's success to its high viewing figures and originality. The show was recently renewed for a third season.
