'True Blood': Season 5 trailer

Posted on

Want to watch True Blood‘s June 10 premiere without having any idea about what will happen in season 5? If so, stay away from the spoilery trailer HBO released yesterday — which reveals that the clandestine Vampire Authority is none too pleased with what’s going on in Bon Temps. The Authority’s leader, new character Roman — played by Law & Order: SVU‘s Christopher Meloni — intends to take some drastic action to restore order. And if that wasn’t bad enough, season 3 antagonist Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) definitely isn’t encased in concrete anymore.

Check out the bloody, fantastical trailer — which also includes a sexy Eric and Pam flashback, as well as brief peeks at characters like Lafayette, Alcide, and, of course, Sookie — below the jump.

That hashtag is right: Waiting sucks.
