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.
