‘True Blood’: Bloody tears stand out in new season 5 poster

A different kind of tear.

As if the wait for new “True Blood” was not hard enough, the producers behind the show are now torturing us even more — and reminding us not to shed a few tears in the process.

The creepy near poster was unveiled by HBO on Wednesday, and it conveys a rather simple message to viewers in hopes of them not getting too emotional while we wait — though we admit that it’s pretty hard not to.

In some ways, the poster is reminiscent of the promotional campaign the show used back in early seasons of a face with blood dripping down the mouth — however, in that one the eyes were not visible. (Therefore, consider this one to be a little bit of a reversal.)

Season 5 of the vampire drama premieres on June 10 — and if you haven’t seen any preview videos yet from the show, you can check one out below this article.
