For fans of cable televisions craziest bloodsucking show, the wait is almost over as HBO announced Friday that their hit vampire show "True Blood" would be kicking off its long-awaited sixth season on June 16. Over the weekend the cable giant dropped the first teaser for season six and it looks to be a bloody affair. Check it out below!
Sookie, Eric, Jason, Tara, Lafayette, Pam, Jessica, Alcide, Russell, and Bill return along with the previously announced newbies Rutger Hauer (as a mysterious figure with deep ties to Sookie and Jason), "Rubicon"’s Arliss Howard (as Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell), "Friday Night Lights" star Jurnee Smollett-Bell (as do-gooder Nicole), Karolina Wydra (as Violet, a strong, sexy, possibly dangerous vamp), Luke Grimes (as a circa ’70s-made vamp who is smart, spiritual, and emotionally deeper than any other bloodsucker we’ve seen before), and "90210"’s Amelia Rose Blaire (as Howard’s onscreen daughter).
Based on the popular Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris, the Emmy-nominated hit drama series was created by Alan Ball, creator of HBO's Emmy-winning series "Six Feet Under."
I'm most looking forward to the performance from genre icon Rutger Hauer and his magnificent hair!
