True Blood Premiere Dates – Season 2 & Season 3

By  |  29 Comments

There’s been some confusion about True Blood premiere dates, so we wanted to clear that up:

  • HBO will begin reairing True Blood season 2 on March 21, 2010.
  • True Blood season 3 premieres on HBO June 13, 2010.
  • Space is airing True Blood season 1 in Canada on Sunday evenings right now.
  • FX UK is airing True Blood season 2 in the UK on Friday evenings right now.

We do not have information on when season 3 will begin airing outside the U.S. As soon as we do, we’ll post it here at

    Have you heard whether Channel 4 is showing season 2? I know for season 1, FX showed it way before channel 4 did but otherwise I won’t be able to watch season 2 on TV

    To my knowledge Space is airing Trueblood on Tuesday Nights (9pm mt) not Sundays.
    Comes on the same night as LOST. Sayid and Eric in one night… Im being spoiled. <3

      As noted above, we don’t have information about True Blood’s release in other markets. When we do, we’ll post it.

      Re lax information about Australia release date: I find that very frustrating. Why are release dates for countries other than US tnreated as if they don’t matter? Are our fan numbers down here not big enough for profit making interest? We are always sitting around waiting for our turn well after these things are released elsewhere. I wonder how that affects illegal download statistics.

      Very disapointing.

        Bel, I have an early August schedule for season 3 via Foxtel. Since I refuse to have anything to do with Murdoch television outlets am either going to get the shows taped in the U.S or wait on next year’s DVD release. Very disappointed this wasn’t picked up free to air by either ABC 2 or SBS. Once again we get the raw end of the stick.

        And yes there is a sizeable Down Under following with sites, including my own, giving extensive coverage to the show. 🙂

      Well that rules ME out of watching True Blood if it’s only going to air on Pay TV.. and it will rule out a LOT of other Aussie Fans as well because so many people have discontinued using Foxtel because it is so crap

      Bye Bye True Blood…. I’ll have to find another show to follow…….

    Well I’ve got foxtel. But it sux that we still have to wait till bloody august. I’m going to see if I can watch it on you tube or something. This BS! I love love love the show and books! But I’m really disheartened by the fact that we get everything last!!! If any of you are Aussies and live in WA let me know and you can come watch it at my place for free!!!
