I’m only about halfway through the first season of HBO’s sleazy smash “True Blood”, so I’m not going to bother watching the trailers you see embedded below. However, just because I’m a little slow on the uptake doesn’t mean that I’m going to deny its legions of vampire-loving fans from having a look-see at what’s in store for season five. My guess: Lots of sex and blood-sucking, often at the same time. Just a theory.
Here’s some information you may need regarding what’s in store for next season. Instead of rewriting these facts, snippets, and bits of trivia, I’m going to copy and paste them directly from True-Blood.net. That way I don’t have to ruin the fun for myself. In other words, there are spoilers lurking just around the corner. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Season 5 will pick up right where season 4 left off, with Sookie holding Tara in the kitchen.
Alan Ball, Kristin Bauer and Alexander Skarsgard have all stated in various interviews that we’ll see a flashback to when Eric turned Pam into a vampire.
Although season 5 is based on Dead as a Doornail, Alan Ball said that season 5 will combine elements from multiple books much more than in previous seasons (in other words, we could see events from books 6-?).
A major character introduced in Dead as a Doornail is Quinn. No word yet on whether he’ll appear on the show, but we do have some casting suggestions.
We will not see zombies in season 5, but the writing staff are researching “lesser known” supernatural creatures to appear.
Characters who are confirmed for season 5 include: Sookie, Bill, Eric, Alcide, Lafayette, Arlene, Terry, Jessica, Hoyt, Sam, Jason, Pam, and Patrick.
Denis O’Hare confirmed that Russell Edgington will return in the True Blood season 5 premiere.
Scott Foley will return as Patrick Devins for at least half of the season 5 episodes.
Alan Ball has signed on to executive produce True Blood season 5.
Rutina Wesley has confirmed that Tara will be back in season 5.
Nelsan Ellis says that we’ll see Jesus again in season 5.
Now that the stage has been properly set, perhaps it’s time to take a look at the latest and greatest trailers for the fifth season of “True Blood”. After you’re done there, have a look at some of the twittering that’s happening in relation to the season premiere on June 10th.
Kinell, it all went down in the last episode of true blood! Season 5 better hurry up.
Cracking ending to season 4 of true blood, roll on autumn for season 5
