Well ladies and gents the fifth season of HBO's "True Blood" is set to kick-off next month and to help get you stoked for this thing we've got over a dozen new stills from the upcoming season! Only problem is these stills are actually pretty boring... So much for helping us get stoked.
Regardless you can go ahead and scroll away above and below to check out all the new shots, a lot of which give us looks at some of the new cast members! So what are you waiting for? Get scrolling and try to enjoy that shite.
Then in other "True Blood" news we've got newcomer Scott Foley talking shop on how he's one of the only 'humans' on the show. Foley popped up in the Season 4 finale as Patrick, Terry’s (Todd Lowe) former commander officer in Iraq. Here's what the actor spilled to TV Line:
“It’s so disappointing because I went on a diet, I got into great shape, I lost weight… and nothing. Todd and I are the only ones who don’t ‘nude up’ on the show!”
“People ask me, ‘Oh my God, you’re on True Blood — what are you?!” And I have to keep saying, “Umm… nothing! I’m just a guy! I’m not a vampire, I’m not a werewolf, I’m not a werepanther, I’m not a fairy, I’m not a shapeshifter. I’m just a guy coming into town trying to finish something he started back in Iraq.”
“Something happened between the two of them [Patrick & Terry] in Iraq that needs to be dealt with. I can’t say what it is. It has nothing to do with vampires or werelwolves. But there is a mission that they need to complete.”
Works for me! Is it weird that I'm actually more intrigued by this "True Blood" plot than anything involving vampires, faeries, werewolves or shapeshifters? Eh whatever.
Thanks to a Japanese scientist's invention of synthetic blood, vampires have progressed from legendary monsters to fellow citizens overnight. And while humans have been safely removed from the menu, many remain apprehensive about these creatures "coming out of the coffin." Religious leaders and government officials around the world have chosen their sides, but in the small Louisiana town of Bon Temps, the jury is still out
Scott Foley isn't the only one making home in Bon Temps in "True Blood's" fifth season. Fellow cast members include Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Nelsan Ellis, Alexander Skarsgard, Deborah Ann Woll, Camilla Luddington (below), Janina Gavankar, Jacob Hopkins, Carolyn Hennesy, Christopher Meloni, Peter Mensah, Christopher Heyerdahl, Lucy Griffiths, Dale Dickey, Louis Herthum, Valentina Cervi and Kelly Overton. "True Blood" returns on June 10th, only on HBO!
