Well, Truebies, it's up. As we reported on Thursday, HBO's official production blog for "True Blood" Season 4 went live Friday (Feb. 11) morning.

In its inaugural blog post, creator Alan Ball's assistant, Gianna Sobol, introduces herself and tells us that they're in the middle of shooting Episode 403 and the production office is bustling. 

Spoiler alert!

"Harry Potter's" Fiona Shaw is wowing the crew with her acting. She plays Marnie, a medium who gets possessed by a powerful witch. Rebecca Wisocky ("90210," "The Mentalist") gets a wardrobe fitting. She's playing the beautiful and quick-tempered Queen Mab, who rules over a fantasy land.

"Now I don't want to give away too many details," Sobol writes. "But today's call sheet includes the words 'hostage,' 'bites,' 'dinner' and 'Eric.' There is also a General Safety Memo When Working with Exotic Animals attached to the front. This is one dangerous place to be, and things are as big and crazy as ever."

Then, Sobol gives us a special treat. Ball answers three questions:

Gianna: What are you most excited about this season?
Alan: I really love the Eric storyline.

Gianna: What's going to shock the fans?
Alan: What happens to Jason...throughout the whole season.

Gianna: Got any advice for fans that are chomping at the bit?
Alan: We're working as fast as we can! In the meantime, I recommend watching the Swedish film Let the Right One In and the Russian films Day Watch and Night Watch.

Looks like we have some homework to do before Season 4, right? What did you think of the inaugural post of the "Inside True Blood" production blog?
