True Blood is going all out with the promotion for the upcoming fifth season, which is coming to HBO on June 10th, and they aren’t stopping yet. The second big bad official trailer for Season 5 has been released by HBO and it shows off the psychotic King Russell Edgington. Check out the latest trailer below!
That was an action-packed trailer, and it revealed a few new goodies. Let us break down some of what we have learned from this 1 minute 22 second trailer:
- Lafayette lecturing Sookie about the trail of bodies she leaves, while helping her bury a body.
- Sam strung up and apparently tortured.
- A peek at Russell all gross, mangy and deformed after being released from his concrete grave.
- Hoyt absolutely drenched in blood.
- Russell sharing his love for human blood.
That about covers the major new footage. There were a whole lot of split second images of other characters as well, new and old, but they didn’t exactly show much. There was also a lot of old footage that was already shown in the first trailer, which is pretty disappointing. I wanted all new footage. Speaking of the first trailer, in case you missed it, check it out below.
There will be a whole lot of drama taking over the upcoming season of True Blood (shock shock), just like every other season. I am looking forward to some of the plot lines in Season 5, while others already have me rolling my eyes. Here’s hoping everything comes together this season.
The 12-episode fifth season of True Blood will kick off Sunday, June 10th, at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT). For more goodies to tide you over until then visit True Blood on HBO.com and “like” True Blood on Facebook.
What are your thoughts on this new trailer? Does it get you all excited for Season 5?
