"True Blood" Season 5 (Sunday, June 10 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO) is upon us, and so is the return of Russell Edgington?! In these new teasers, Alcide (Joe Manganiello) warns Sookie (Anna Paquin) that Russell (Denis O'Hare) is alive and coming for her.
"It's Russell Edgington, Sook. He's on the loose," Alcide tells Sookie.
"On the loose? Russell Edgington is dead!" Sookie says.
Viewers will remember Russell met his supposed end in a cement grave at the end of "True Blood" Season 3. But all those buried promos hint at one thing: He's back.
And can you feel that tension? Alcide and Sookie seem to have a little chilliness between them. Could his love confession at the end of Season 4 create the frosty feelings?
Take a look at the promo below, and an extended one preview of the same scene that features Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis). Want more "True Blood"? Take a look at this Season 5 trailer featuring new footage.
