HBO released a 30-second teaser trailer for season three of True Blood the other day, but a full 2:00 trailer just hit the net, and it reveals quite a bit more detail for the upcoming episodes of the vampire soap. I won’t spoil any reveals here, except to say that an array of characters appear in various states of disrobe, and some of the lightly-clothed cast combinations are intriguing. Season three of True Blood premieres on June 13th; you can get a taste of the drama in store by checking out the trailer after the jump.
