Even though most of us are looking ahead to the forthcoming fifth season of “True Blood,” HBO has released a trio of video teasers that take us back. The three videos go on a video tour of the filming locations ending – Fangtasia, Bill’s House, and Sookie’s House – with the season’s slogan “You can’t escape your past….”

Mixing romance, suspense, mystery, and humor, the Emmy-nominated show takes place at a time when vampires have come out of the coffin and follows the on-and-off romance between waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, and 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer).

TV: Vampire King to Return to Land of 'True Blood'?

Pure evil could return to HBO’s “True Blood” as actor Denis O’Hare tells the Hollywood Reporter that he may eventually return to the popular vampire series:

I left them on a high. They have been very, very nice to me, and they tell me that they think I’m going to come back,” he said about the possibility of a return of his character Russell Edgington, the flamboyant vampire king, to the show. “And I’m waiting. We’ll see what happens.

What would the storyline be?

Someone discussed a possible idea with me, which, of course, I can’t tell you,” O’Hare said. “But it’s a very cool idea. It’s not far fetched, but it’s not something that you would see coming.

The writing staff for “True Blood” has become notorious for throwing curve balls ending each episode with an insane OMFG moment. Need an example? How about one and two (or maybe the third below?)

It feels like the third season of “True Blood” just came to and end and already HBO is pushing this summer’s fourth season premiere. Inside you’ll find a teaser video that unfortunately doesn’t carry any footage. Still, it’s that time already?! Time: SLOW DOWN.
