True Blood teases us with series 5 poster and behind the scenes clip!
Emma Roberts takes a look at the new video and poster for the 5th series of HBO's True Blood.
WARNING! Spoiler alert – if you’re not up-to-date with True Blood, you will come across some spoilers in this blog entry!
Don’t get me wrong, ever since the first episode of HBO’s True Blood hit our unsuspecting screens, it’s been my own personal V – I’ve been hooked. But, the fourth series of the drama, which stars real-life lovers Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, left me feeling slightly underwhelmed.
I don’t know if it was the fact that once tough-as-nails vampire Eric Northman turned into a complete puppy dog or that Sookie Stackhouse’s ex-lover Bill Compton had a go at being a politician – but, something from the fourth series of the show was definitely missing.
Will HBO be able to find the mystery ingredient in time for the fifth series? Well, despite my disappointment at HBO’s fourth serving of the show, I can’t deny that I’m still hungry for more, and being the little teases that they are, HBO have whet my appetite by releasing a new teaser poster and clip. They spoil us!
The poster shows a vampire crying (a tell-tale sign of a vamp is that they cry blood, don’t you know?), with the words ‘Don’t cry, it’s back’ written beneath the weeping vampire.
Lucky True Blood fans in The States only have to wait to June to get their next True Blood fix, whereas in the UK the show is set to return to FX in the Autumn.
But, if you can’t wait that long to see what’s going down in Bon Temps, check out the latest behind the scenes video clip from series 5 below!
Yikes, it seems that Pam has got herself in a dangerous situation, as her maker Eric (who is now madly in love with Sookie) is torturing her for information!
At the end of series four, we saw that the infamous vampire big-bad, Russell Edgington, had escaped from the concrete grave that he was buried in at the end of series 3 – which is seriously bad news for Eric and Bill, not to mention Sookie.
Series 5 of the show will also see new faces join the cast, including Law & Order Special Victims Unit actor, Christopher Meloni – I can’t wait to see what his character Roman brings to the show.

think i'll move to the USA for a couple of months can't wait for the new series to return in the autumn or i'll start reading the books till it return
i'm now thinking that maybe its about i took a trip ti the library and start reading the books. my son told me today that they missed the very first showing and that they couldnt watch the rest of the serie, told them, bloody fools, i was hooked from prog 1, love it love it love it.
I didn't like all the spirits taking over bodies by entering their mouths; that was a bit over-baked.
The rest was fine, but certainly did lack the spark of thr first three seasons (all the bonking made up for that ;))
Hopefully season 4 moves away from all the Wiccan rubbish.
I read the books first but prefer the series. The TV series develops the side characters so much better while in the books they are a bit 2 dimensional. Even Bill and Eric. And keeping Lafayette in the TV show was brilliant.
I didn't like the Faerie bits in the book too. Felt it was a bit silly but the TV series has (as yet) not made a huge thing of it other than her glowing hands.
