The sixth season of True Blood hasn't yet wrapped, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, the series has just lost another showrunner. Not long after creator/showrunner Alan Ball stepped down from the show to work on his new series, Banshee, his replacement Mark Hudis has stepped down as well. In an official statement, HBO said that Hudis left to "focus on development under his overall deal with the network" - meaning, his two-year development deal which he signed last year.

Hudis is being replaced by writer-producer Brian Buckner, who has been on the show's staff since season one.
