True Blood: Finally, a Season 5 Trailer With All-New Footage! (VIDEO)

You guys, this hot new True Blood trailer is jam-packed with quickly cut new episodic footage. Watch it immediately! Then we'll talk about it.

This first extended look at Season 5 discreetly avoids any Tara reveals but seems to hint at a season geared toward inner-vampire political turmoil, as well as the human world growing even less tolerant of supernatural neighbors. It looks like things are about to get much heavier with regard to inner-vampire struggles: Christopher Meloni 's character seizing power within the Authority, Russell waging war against the Authority, our favorite undeads Eric and Bill having to balance evading the Authority AND Russell Cray-Cray "Spinal Tap" Edgington.

I did kind of laugh/gasp at the idea of the humans rising up against the vampires. With the current logic of the world in place you might as well warn that a lawn of grass will rise up against a lawn mower. Although there is the fact True Blood's vampires can't daywalk—which, I will always contend, keeps the logic of this world far more feasible and the human-vampire co-existence more realistic than any of the other vampire franchises currently going.

Also, it seems like Sookie hooks up in the Biblical Sense with Alcide (hope he's cool with her killing Debbie) and gets investigated for Debbie's murder. Jason Stackhouse, it would seem, is still getting freaky with Jessica, who is killing it in lingerie (is she taking Pam's place at Fangtasia while Pam redecorates her house with those luscious lace sheets?). And Jésus's demon possesses someone! I'm looking forward to a lot of him hanging out in ghost-form with Lafayette, mostly because I love actor Kevin Alejandro so much.

Do I also sense some kind of witchy vibe with the one vampiress/witch hybrid throwing her arms back? Can't deal with anymore maenads, so this had better be a witch. (Book readers: Is this Sookie's rich-witch roommate? Are we heading for New Orleans at long last?)

Be sure you go back and watch this multiple times so you can really appreciate Erik in that bowler hat. Too Victor-Victoria sexy for words. Then hit the comments and fill me in on your predictions for Season 5 based on this super-tantalizing trailer!


True Blood returns for Season 5 on Sunday, June 10 at 9pm on HBO.

Respect My Authoritah!! .



Okay, so Tara is going to be a vampire this season. I'm guessing Sookie's witch friend from the books is being left out and Lafayette is going to fill this role, else why have him get in to all the witch stuff, its a bit late for the New Orleans stuff now especially since it was set after the hurricane. I hope they depart from the books altogether cause they are gone so sh*t.



P.S. I have to say to you Lily that I found your reviews last year more entertaining that the episodes, they were so funny especially the photo captions. I'll watch the show this just to read your reviews!

It's funny you say this, because I hear about this all the time. On one side, you'll have fans bitch because the show has deviated from the books too much and that they're nothing alike. On the other, fans will bitch that the books suck (at least the recent ones), and that they're glad that they aren't following them anymore.

So not to be gross but if you watch the end scene from last season in slo-mo, when tara gets shot you can literaly see her brain matter and skull spattering everywhere. I think Taras had it for good. You have to still be alive a lil bit to be able to become a vamp in the books anyway and its hard to turn someone when their body's in really bad shape from injuries or illness or drugs... I guess I could be wrong but I think Tara died instantly. Unless maybe LaFayette's newly inherited demon could do some crazy magic or something but I doubt it. I'm excited because I know there will be more fairies, even though they didn't feature them in the promo I know there will be and thats one of my favorite parts of the books (though obviously they have spun wayyy away from the books at this point) but at the end of the last season they made it clear that more fairies were abound. Fingers crossed for Niall or Claude or Dermot showing up.... That'd be cool to see Ryan Kwantan play both Jason and Dermot... Psyched to see Meloni join the cast that'll be awesome and also SUPER EXCITED to see Ol' Russell Edgington back. I don't know how I feel about Alcide and Sookie...I have been and will forever be (in both the show and the books) Team Eric. June 10th can't come soon enough!

Looking pretty good. Meloni is playing a badass with some style, Jessica is still the sexy thing she is, and of course, Russell returns. I hope he is his full, pulling spines out of people, crazy.

Thank God for this trailer! The promo photos and the very short first trailer hinted at the whole Arlene/Terry/Terry's friend-situation a LOT and this is far from it! Season 5 is going to be packed with different storylines, I love it.

I would love to have Amelia come in. I always loved her character, and wanted to see what they could do with a "clear broadcaster" like her, and of course New Orleans = awesome. Jessica always rocks it in whatever she wears/does/awesomes. And I am SOOOO looking forward to see Christopher Meloni rock it authoritative style. Looking forward to this muy mucho.

AWESOME! This season might just be the best ever in this show! I really want to see blood being spilled all over the place, while we see who wins this new war. Plus, get Sookie and Bill together again (they deserve each other!).

Oh my goodness!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have only watched this trailer once, and I will have to watch again and again to really comprehend it. There is so much going on! I am so completely excited for this season!!!!!

The witchy girl in the trailer is Salome, an ancient vampire. This is one crazy looking trailer, and I mean crazy in a good way. This has just about everything I love about True Blood, though I am aware it's just a trailer, and judging something by a trailer is a no-no. The things I'm looking forward to most is the Authority stuff and Pam's backstory. She was featured quite a bit in the trailer, so I hope this will be her year to shine, which has me hope she gets more than just a minute of screentime in an episode. Closing, I'm glad Lily put this up and not Tim, but in tribute to him, how fucking hot did Jessica look?

so I'm completely convince Pam turns Tara. The shot at the very beginning seems like someone is coming at Sookie and Tara, and the shot towards the middle in Fangtasia's basement and it seems Pam is trying to get someone to feed on a girl...who else would she be teaching really? I really can't wait for the flashback scene with Pam too, the little clips we got in the trailer seem amazing.
