‘True Blood’: Christopher Meloni, Anna Paquin in new season 5 posters

Meet Meloni's Roman.

As we inch ever closer to the June 10 return of “True Blood,” HBO has released some new posters of season 5 worth getting at least a little bit excited about.

Unfortunately, the posters really do not show off much outside of giving us a greater understanding of the key players for the upcoming 12 episodes. For example, the presence of Christopher Meloni’s Roman to the left gives us an idea of just how important his Authority vampire is going to be to the season’s story — in addition to that, there is also a poster floating around of Denis O’Hare, who is returning as Russell Edgington after his crypt was unearthed at the end of season 4.

While it is easy to get excited about the poster featuring Rutina Wesley’s Tara, it is also a little early to get too excited about it. While we assume that the actress will be back after her fate looked grim during the season finale, it is still unclear in what form she will be back. It’s possible that Tara could live and go forward with her rather unlucky life, or she could appear as a supernatural creature or a ghost who speaks with Lafayette as many others have in the past already.

Check out some more posters for the show below. Which one is your favorite?
