The fifth season of True Blood still doesn’t begin for over a month, but HBO is attempting to make the wait less/more painful by releasing a series of teasers fittingly titled “Waiting Sucks.” You’ve probably seen this trailer format before (I think they did it for season four as well), but they show a behind-the-scenes/on-set view of a pivotal scene being filmed. These three trailers center on Terry & Patrick, Sookie & Alcide, and Sam & Luna. The Sookie & Alcide one is particularly enticing as it teases the return of a fan favorite character.
I felt that the creative juice for the series started to wane during the third season and I didn’t really see it back in full-force last year, but hopefully things are more fun this season. The addition of Christopher Meloni to the cast is certainly promising. Creator Alan Ball has stated that season five will be his last as showrunner, so it’ll be interesting to see how the show adjusts for the very likely season six. Anyway, hit the jump to watch three new teasers for the show. Season five of True Blood premieres on Sunday, June 10th.
