Tonight get ready for blood, sex, drama, and some laughs, and one hell of a good soapy vampire show, when True Blood returns for its kick-off to its fifth season.
A bit of where we left off … at the conclusion of season four of True Blood, Sookie summoned all her resources for a climactic encounter with Marnie, and emerged triumphant. But her showdown with Debbie may have had fatal consequences for Tara. Meanwhile, the denizens of Bon Temps were approaching a new crisis with Russell Edgington, their familiar friend, while new threats from unexpected sources loomed. The Emmy-nominated True Blood is back for a12-episode fifth season starting tonight, Sunday, June 10 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on HBO.
In the first episode of the new season entitled, “Turn! Turn! Turn!” Sookie and Lafayette clean up the Tara and Debbie Pelt mess; Bill and Eric are visited by the Vampire Authority; Sam and Alcide deal with an angry werewolf pack. The series follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard). Alan Ball (creator of the Emmy(R)-winning HBO series “Six Feet Under”) created and executive produces the show, which is based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
