We only recently just saw a full trailer for the upcoming sixth season of the HBO series True Blood, and now the network has unveiled a large batch of high-resolution images previewing the drama to come. In addition to giving us looks at fan favorites like Sookie (Anna Paquin), Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), Bill (Stephen Moyer), and of course Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), these images also introduce us to a host of new characters played by the likes of Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner), Arliss Howard (Full Metal Jacket), and Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Friday Night Lights).
Hit the jump to peruse the gallery of images. The series also stars Ryan Kwanten, Joe Manganiello, Rutina Wesley, Sam Trammell, Deborah Ann Woll, Carrie Preston, Todd Lowe, Nelsan Ellis, Michael McMillian, Lucy Griffiths, Lauren Bowles, Chris Bauer, Kelly Overton, Rob Kazinsky, and Amelia Rose Blaire. Season six of True Blood premieres on HBO Sunday June 16th at 9pm/8c.
HBO’s True Blood is back this Sunday, June 10th, at 9pm, and the show’s fifth season is sure to be full of bloody mayhem that will hopefully rectify some of last year’s lackluster performance. As the number of magical creatures and love triangles (love-dodecahedrons, at this point) continues to increase, it may be hard to keep track of who’s alive, who’s dead, who came back and what kind of magic they possess. Take a spoiler-filled refresher course after the jump to relive the last four seasons of True Blood, including some of the best, worst and weirdest surprises from Bon Temps over the last few years (or moments, if you’re on fairy time).

Katia Winter (Arena) and Ted Levine (Shutter Island) have been tapped to star in writer/director Blair Erickson’s horror film The Banshee Chapter. We first told you about the project earlier this month when it was announced that Zachary Quinto’s production banner, Before the Door Pictures, would make The Banshee Chapter its third feature project. Per the press release, the film will tell the story of a young journalist (Winter) who goes looking for a missing friend (to be played by True Blood‘s Michael McMillian) who “had been experimenting with mind-altering chemicals developed in secret government drug tests.”
The almost always great Levine will make a turn as a “rogue counter-culture novelist” who helps Winter during the course of her search. The Banshee Chapter is scheduled to begin shooting in New Mexico this week. For a little more on the project and Quinto’s Before the Door Pictures, hit the jump to check out the full press release.
