After a series of behind-the-scenes sneak peeks, HBO plays with “True Blood” fans’ emotions with the image of an eye with one bloody tear trickling down a cheek. Premiering at THR, the poster reads, “Don’t Cry, It’s Back” alluding to the series’ fifth season return on Sunday, June 10 at 9 p.m.
HBO has been teasing many returns for the series’ fifth season. Says the site, we know that Russell Edgington (Dennis O’Hare) has somehow escaped from his cement prison. Also, Scott Foley returns as Terry’s (Todd Lowe) military buddy who he thought was dead and will have to face their past. And something is after Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell). Also, expect the fairies to come back into play this season to give Sookie (Anna Paquin) some new lessons about her powers and her legacy.
And clearly, fans should be excited about The Vampire Authority’s appearance on the series – which was probably brought on by the fall of the vampire hierarchy in the area. New series regular, “Law & Order: SVU” star Chris Meloni, will lead them as Roman.
