Season 5 of True Blood won’t be here until the summer, but that doesn’t mean HBO won’t tease us mercilessly until then! They recently released a promo for Season 5 and while short and free of any actual scenes, it’s got the Truebies talking. Check it out for yourself:
The Buried graphic teaser looks amazing! I’m really loving the design of this one. I do wish it was a bit more revealing though, but it’s great to see either way. Who, or what, do you think they’re talking about in the promo?
Hmm… I am guessing they’re probably talking about Russell Edgington being dug up out of the concrete. I wonder if he’s going to be the big bad this season too. Or maybe, something else is also being dug up from the ground. What do you think?
In other True Blood news, a few cast members recently shared some teasers during the Golden Globes After Party. Janina Gavankar (Luna), Ryan Kwanten (Jason), Carrie Preston (Arlene) and Joe Manganiello (Alcide) all shared a little bit on their characters in Season 5.
“Jason is hanging onto every shred of humanity as it is, and he was lucky to survive last season. He was on the brink of death several times,” Ryan said of Jason Stackhouse’s failed werepanther transformation. “This season he’s finally becoming a man, I think. He’s got responsibility in his life. He’s in a position of authority too because Andy is not doing too well with being a sheriff.”
In Janina’s interview she emphasized the fact that no one in Bon Temps stays happy for long (SO true), promising that things get interesting for Luna and that she will always dream of a happy loving relationship with Sam.
“I will always have hope for Sam. They are meant to be,” Janina said. “Nobody understands you like another shifter.”
Carrie Preston told us that the plotline with the demon baby is over (finally) and that we haven’t seen the last of Scott Foley’s mysterious character Patrick Devins .
“He’s definitely there to muddy the waters a little bit. It wouldn’t be True Blood if you didn’t have conflict, so I think it makes for a very interesting dynamic with Terry and Arlene this season,” she said.
Finally, the sexy Joe Manganiello cleverly dropped the hint that kind, lovable Alcide might be taking a turn toward the dark side.
“We’ve seen that he’s a sweet guy; we’ve seen that he’s the kind of guy that would be great in a relationship,” Joe said. “I think that you’re going to be introduced to a side of him that’s going to slam you up against the wall and go for it.”
…and now I am picturing Alcide slamming me against a wall…mmm… ahem. Yeah, so the cast shared all kinds of goodies! What are your thoughts on their teasers and the promo above?
