The highly anticipated fourth season of "True Blood" won't hit televisions until June 26, but HBO has released a trailer for the new season and it seems the resident of Bon Temps are in for an action-packed season.
When we last left the residents of Bon Temps in "True Blood," Russell Edgington, the vampire king of Mississippi, was buried under a slab of concrete after running on very violent and public rampage, Jason Stackhouse became in charge of the backwoods residents of Hot Shot and Sookie Stackhouse discovered the truth about vampire Bill Compton's interest in her fairy heritage and was later transported to fairy world.
The trailer, which can be seen below, features brief glimpses of new cast members including Alexandra Breckenridge who plays Daisy, a Wiccan, and Janina Gavankar, who plays Luna, shape-shifter who is a potential love interest for fellow shape-shifter Sam Merlotte (played by Sam Trammell).
The fourth season of "True Blood" is said to loosely follow the event of the fourth novel in "The Southern Vampire Mysteries" series, which the show is based off of, called "Dead to the World." Creator Alan Ball told the audience at PaleyFest in March that it will be a while before Bill and Sookie reconnect.
Other stars set to return to the world of Bon Temps include Anna Paquin's Sookie Stackhouse, Stephen Moyer's Bill Compton and Ryan Kwanten as Jason Stackhouse. Also appearing to make a shirtless return is Joe Manganiello as the werewolf Alcide Herveaux.
"We go to a different place than we've ever been to before. The show starts place," Moyer told OnTheRedCarpet.com host Chris Balish in March at PaleyFest before hesitating, "The show doesn't start in Bon Temps."
"I think that's enough," Paquin told Moyer.Check out the trailer for the fourth season of "True Blood" below.
