The war is on. With Tru Blood shortages escalating, Billith's (Stephen Moyer) rampage on all humans in full force, Jason's (Ryan Kwanten) anti-fanger hate reaching a boiling point, and the growing divide between humans and vampires as a result, Season 6 of True Blood is shaping up to be bloodier than the last five, if that's even possible. And we're starting to believe it just might be. Still, the circumstances don't seem to have shifted too much from our last trip to Bon Temps.
HBO released the teaser trailer for the new season, which will pick back up right in the middle the war Billith escalated in the final moments of Season 5. Sadly, our only indication of the ferocity of this oncoming conflict is a muddle of voices, including Bill, Jason, Sookie, and a few nameless newscasters. We do, however, get to become a little more acquainted with that increasingly precious Tru Blood bottle. Am I the only one who didn't realize the logo involved Chinese characters? (A Google excavation reveals, anticlimactically, that they translate to "True Blood." Riveting.)
True Blood returns Sunday, June 16 at 9 PM on HBO.
