New season 5 trailer for 'True Blood'
The countdown is on for the return of HBO’s beloved vampire drama “True Blood."
On Sunday, the network gave fang-enthusiasts a quick bite of what’s to come in season 5 of the hit show via a trailer unveiled during “Game of Thrones.”
There’s more blood, sex and tomfoolery on the way!
By the look of things, reverend no-good, Jason Stackhouse’s evangelical nemesis Steve Newlin, has returned to wreak even more havoc on his life.
And, apparently, the vampire-human love triangle involving Jason’s sister Sookie (played by Anna Paquin), Bill (Paquin’s real-life hubby Stephen Moyer) and Eric (the smoldering Alexander Skarsgard) continues - but is Eric kissing somebody else in the clip?!
Absent from the 30-second teaser, sadly, is Rutina Wesley, who played Sookie’s BFF Tara on all previous seasons, though she was shot in the head in the final season 4 episode. (Reincarnation as a vamp, anyone?)
And speaking of Tara, her cousin Lafayette may be mourning the loss of his longtime partner, but does that mean he has to go psycho on everybody else? The shot of him holding a knife gives us a reason to think so.
The exact debut date for season 5 has not yet been revealed, but fans can look forward to 12 full episodes starting at some point in June.

Great show! It gets wilder each season. I am looking forward to the next one.
Love the show. Then read the books. The books are good. Last book a bit hokie. Hopefully the next book being released of may 1st has a bit more bite than the last. Other than the basic premise and named characters the show has veered far from the books. Wonder if more fairies will show up this season on the show?
LOL @Chris. Why click on a page for a True Blood season 5 trailer if you haven't finished with season 4? Dumb.

Look.. Where is aizanoi
Season 5 starts June 10th. I cannot wait!
YOU SHOULD NEVER PUT IN A SPOILER ( the news about Tara) WITHOUT A WARNING!!!!!! (Caps intentional).
@chris, ummm it's not a spoiler when season 4 has been out for almost a year. Just because YOU didn't keep up with the past season doesn't mean the journalist can't talk about it.
It is not exactly a spoiler since it happened last season!!
Where is peace?
Gross : ). : ). But funny. : ). : )
Great. Can't wait! I just got rid of HBO. Guess I'll be getting it back soon. She's great and so are her men!
