Specifically, this trailer shines in introducing us to some of the new faces that are going to be crawling around Bon Temps when season 5 starts up — including Eric’s “vampire sister” Nora. It also still dances around the issue of whether or not Tara is going to survive the shooting by Debbie Pelt, though we do ominously see Sookie and Lafayette seemingly burying someone outside.
As for fans of Russell Edgington, we get our first real look at him of the season in this trailer — along with a rather hilarious line from Sookie that really shows just how far she has come since the beginning of this series. (Namely, how she now realizes that just about everyone wants her blood.)
What do you think about this new trailer for the show, and do you think it is shaping up to be a great season? Stay tuned all week, as we’re set to have more coverage of what is going to be coming up this summer.
