Watch: HBO Releases A Teaser Clip For ‘True Blood’ Season 5


Last month we learned that actor Christopher Meloni will be joining the cast of True Blood for the upcoming 5th season of the show. Today we get to see a new promo video for the upcoming 5th season of the show that *may* give a hint as to what role Meloni will play on True Blood. OK, in all honesty … there really isn’t a hint about Christopher’s character … but we do get a bit of a hint as to what the season 5 storyline may be about. Check out the trailer below and see what you think.

Yeah … not much to go by … but we do know that these teaser trailers have historically given us a clue as to what kind of new supernatural creatures might be added to the show. We’ve had werewolves, shape-shifters, witches, etc. … so what could be next? Zombies, perhaps? I dunno if this “buried” teaser is meant to clue us into the introduction of zombies or if it’s just meant to reiterate the focus on vampires but … I’m curious. We may have to wait a bit for a new trailer to get more information but … it won’t be long now. True Blood season 5 will be upon us in no time.

    I’m sure it’s a reference to the King being unburied from the cement at the end of last season.

    • @Valerie — … OR ZOMBIES!!!!!!!!

    • Dianna

      well there aren’t any zombies in the series and I’ve read most of them although who knows where they’re going! I don’t watch the show since we don’t have HBO

    • JCZ


  • Kristin

    Spoiler alert —

    If Tara really did die at the end the zombie thing might make sense. Actually there were a lot of dead characters at the end of this last season…maybe they will resurrect as zombies??

  • Nah, I reckon it’s definitely a reference to the King coming back. So exciting that promo is starting already!

  • Renzo

    Russell is back!

  • kellye

    Yeah it’s Russell. Unfortunately no zombies.

    There will be a character that should make all the men on the show insignificant. QUINN. And Christopher Meloni is definitely not him…

  • ohs

    Definitely not zombies. It’s related to Russell, that is all.

  • crystalblueskies

    no zombies.. unless charlaine would allow Allan Ball to shit on her work. maybe its debbie pelt since she died last season. she maybe buried in bon temps and her family is out for blood!

  • Shelby

    Having read the books, but being fully aware of how amazingly different the series is from the books.. I have no idea!

    in the books, Debbie Pelt’s family does send people after Sookie out of revenge, so that could be it :O

  • susanna

    i also think it might be zombies (in addition to russell). did anyone catch arlene’s line from last season, when she & terry are dressed up for halloween? “zombies are the new vampire.” hmmmMMMMmmmmm…. eyebrow-raisey.
