Watch the First True Blood Season 5 Promo!

By  |  12 Comments

HBO aired the first True Blood season 5 promo tonight, and it’s a doozy! We don’t get any scenes from the new season. We don’t even see a character from the show. But those geniuses in the publicity department still made me alternately shiver and cheer. Well done!

What do you think “won’t stay buried forever”? Obviously Russell Edgington, but maybe Debbie Pelt? Bill & Eric taking out Nan?

I tried to tune in for the live one, but I missed it by like 30 seconds. :(( But I knew that if I dropped by here, I would be able to find it. One of the reasons I just love this site. You gals are always so on the ball it is amazing. Thanks again!

    It was a very clever teaser – could be lots of things, Russell, Debbie, Nan, Terry’s past and a whole lot of other secrets that people have been keeping.

    It feels so good that the slow build up has finally kicked off!

    Well obviously Russell, but everything is usually literal as well as metaphorical on True Blood ya know. like someone said doesn’t necessarily have to be another body. Seems people’s pasts don’t always stay buried in the past on this show. We got that mysterious and slightly creepy old friend of Terry’s played by Scott Foley. Wonder what he’s all about huh? Pretty sure Debbie is dead. Rutina Wesley also said that she signed on for season five, and there was a spoiler that Tara will be back just not in her usual form. Which means Tara might not be exactly “buried”. Will she be a ghost? A vampire? A zombie? I am more curious exactly how tara shall return, and what form than anything after that season four finale. Hmmm…This is definitely the worst teaser trailer ever. And by that I mean fantastic! It has me curious and it’s definitely not close enough for the season premiere for me. Why do this to me HBO?

      “Why do this to me HBO?”

      And they’re just getting started, Jacqueline! HBO has so much fun with Truebies.
