‘True Blood’ season 5 trailer: Meet the Authority (video)

Blood returns June 10.

We have another new look at the fifth season of “True Blood” — and this time around, we are getting the opportunity to see the governing body for vampire-kind for the very first time.

In the video below (which aired prior to Sunday night’s new episode of “Game of Thrones”), you can see a ritual performed by the ever-mysterious group known as the Authority — and Christopher Meloni’s character of Roman is going to be front and center.

Details about the season 5 plot are scarce, but the suggestions from last September’s finale are that Bill and Eric will be joining forces to try and take on their longtime oppressors following the Ann Flanagan disaster and the way in which several key issues related to vampires (including the witch storyline along with Russell Edgington) were handled.

This season (as evidenced in the bloody poster above) will premiere in all of its glory on HBO June 10 — one week after “Thrones” ends its second season.

What do you think of Meloni’s look?
