PHOTOS: 12 Hot New Character Posters for True Blood Season 5

By  |  16 Comments

HBO unveiled another part of the publicity campaign for True Blood season 5 with a stunning set of posters featuring 12 characters from the show, including Roman, Russell, and Tara! Take a look and feel free to pass these around to your fellow Truebies!


Which poster do you like most? I’m thrilled to see Rutina Wesley as Tara included, but I think Chris Meloni as Roman might be my favorite. Also? That’s a lot of fangs!

    Oooooh I love Roman, Tara, and Eric’s posters….well they are all great but these seem to speak a bit more than the others.

    On another note…..Just read an interview with Denis O’Hare and he said he gets a new boyfriend, is funnier, sings and dances, and that who dug him up changes his perspective on things. I definitely have held on to my belief that Steve Newlin dug him up and will be his boyfriend. All I am saying is if that happens it is going to be awesome.

    All of the vamps in the posters are shown with their teeth and non-vamps show no fangs….Tara doesn’t show fangs. Might we speculate that even though she survives, she might not be a vamp but …something else, somehow?

      …Of course it doesn’t completely deduce anything, since they might be saving the surprise in general. But I do wonder.
