true blood season 5

HBO has been releasing teaser clips from Season 5 of True Blood for past few weeks, and just recently the Truebies have been treated to the very first poster of the upcoming season. Woo!

Continuing their "Waiting Sucks" promotion for the bloody hit show, HBO’s new poster teases "Don't cry. It's Back." The poster features an image of a woman's eye with a bloody tear sliding down her face.

Check out the poster for yourself:

 

Is that tear simply a nod to fans dying for the return of their favorite show? Or is it a hint that there will be lots of tears this upcoming season?

From the little behind-the-scenes teaser clips HBO has been releasing we already know that there will be a lot of tears this season. After all, the videos have revealed that…

  • Russell Edgington is back after escaping his cement tomb. That is sure to bring about many tears since the vampire is a sadistic bastard that loves laying a hurtin’ on others.
  • Eric will be torturing my beloved Pam over the release of Russell. As we saw in the clip, poor Pam was balling her eyes out.
  • According to his video, Terry will be kidnapped by a madman. His disappearance is sure to bring on tears from his lady Arlene.
  • Luna, Sam’s shapeshifter girlfriend, was shown crying in their sneak peek video after the death of someone she knows.

I am guessing the crying won’t be ending there. We’re definitely going to be in for yet another emotional roller coaster of a season.

What are your thoughts on the new poster? Hopefully the posters get more and more revealing as we get closer to the June 10 premiere date.

What are your hopes for Season 5 of True Blood? More tears, more blood, more romance? Or less of all of those things?
