Sexier, scarier, and more wildly entertaining than ever, HBO’s smash-hit drama series TRUE BLOOD returns for a fifth season with a whole new wave of otherworldly characters, including Vampire Guardian Roman, president of the Vampire Authority, who wants co-existence between humans and vampires; vampire zealot Salome (yes, the Salome), intent on recreating the world in God’s vampyric image; and many more. Created by Oscar® and Emmy® winner Alan Ball and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris, this new season goes deep into the battle between the Vampire Authority and “vampire fundamentalists” – a political power play whose outcome could decide not only the fate of Sookie and her Bon Temps friends, but of all human existence.
