Well Truebies, it looks like our prayers have been answered! @TrueBloodHBO just tweeted that the perpetually hot Alexander Skarsgard (Eric) will be part of the True Blood panel at Conic-Con this year.  

The tweet reads, “JUST IN: Alexander Skarsgard is now confirmed to join the #TrueBlood panel at San Diego Comic-Con July 22 at 5:30 PM. #sdcc.”

Yeah, we’re speechless too. Last year, A.Skars was filming in his native Sweden so he was unable to go to Comic-Con, but that just makes his appearance this year that much sweeter. And hotter.

He’ll be joining cast mates Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Kevin Alejandro, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Nelsan Ellis, Joe Manganiello, Deborah Ann Woll and series creator Alan Ball — for the panel moderated by Entertainment Weekly’s Tim Stack. And Wetpaint Entertainment will be there to get all the delicious True Blood scoop!

Is it July 22 yet? Waiting really does suck!
