‘True Blood’ Proves Waiting Sucks: Sookie Learns Russell’s Back — VIDEO

true bloodTrue Blood has the uncanny ability to always leave its fans wanting more — whether it be a shirtless Eric scene or a life-or-(un)death situation, viewers just can’t resist its seductively dark allure. So it should come as no surprise that the newest teaser for the highly anticipated fifth season — properly named “Waiting Sucks” — proves that the vampiric series still hasn’t lost its touch.

In the behind-the-scenes clip, we watch as werewolf confidante Alcide breaks the news to Sookie that Russell Edgington has returned from his heavily cemented grave. And given that this guy’s a seriously pissed off 3,000-year-old vampire hellbent on getting revenge, she’s understandable a little upset, especially since she thought he’d already met the “true death.” It looks like Eric and Bill are going to have a little explaining to do.

Another snippet of what’s to come also includes fan favorite Lafayette who gives Alcide a little bit of that attitude we love oh so-much. And though it’s unclear what’s got him in a such a foul mood, we can only hope it has nothing to do with poor Tara. Waiting really does suck.

True Blood’s 12-episode arch will kick off Sunday, June 10th, at 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT). But for now, check out the clip below and get a taste of what’s to come.
