New TRUE BLOOD Season 5 Trailer Debuts
"A 3,000-year-old vampire wants to suck my blood...Must be Thursday!"
Yes, vampire snack treat Sookie Stackhouse is back with her fellow residents of Bon Temps, Louisiana in Season 5 of HBO's supernatural series True Blood. In a new trailer that aired last night before Game of Thrones, it looks like Sookie's traditionally insane life isn't going to get easier any time soon.
Picking up from the events of the Season 4 finale, we see Sookie and Lafayette Reynolds burying a body in what appears to be Sookie's backyard. "Oh yeah, baby, you survived," remarks Lafayette bitterly. "You always do. But goddamn do you leave a trail of bodies behind. You know what? You the angel of death."
We also see newly-turned vampire Steve Newlin threatening Sookie's brother Jason, Eric Northman being captured in a net made from silver, but the season's real threat comes from the long-awaited return of Russell Edgington.
"It will take him a few days to recuperate and he will be straight out after us," explains Bill Compton, who helped imprison Russell in cement at the end of Season 3. However, there's the lingering question of who actually freed Russell from his cement tomb. Eric's progeny Pamela "Pam" Swynford De Beaufort hurtfully denies her involvement, causing Eric to reply that he trusts no one.
Other trailer goodness includes Bill's progeny Jessica Hamby looming menacingly behind Steve, Terry Bellefleur being threatened, Hoyt Fortenberry all blood-spattered and ready to fight, and of course, Russell in full view looking as defiant and vengeful as ever. "I want to gorge on human blood because I like it!"
True Blood returns for Season 5 on June 10, 2012. If you'd like to see the full trailer, you can check it out below...
