'True Blood' Season 5 Premiere: Photos, Video And More

Waiting sucks so it's a good thing you don't have to hold out for that much longer for new episodes of "True Blood." The vampire summer series is back on Sun., June 10 at 9 p.m. ET with all your Bon Temps favorites, including Arlene (for more on the red-headed scene-stealer check out our Q&A with Carrie Preston). But of course, it wouldn't be "True Blood" without any new faces.

Joining the ever-growing cast for Season 5 is former "Law & Order: SVU" star Christopher Meloni, "Felicity's" Scott Foley, "Cougar Town's" Carolyn Hennesy and many more sexy vampires, werewolves and vampires.

What do you need to know before the Season 5 premiere? Oh, how about the fact that Season 3 baddie Russell Edgington is back. Yep, he's escaped from his concrete tomb. Who helped him? We won't tell.

Check out the new photos, posters and videos below.

"True Blood" returns on Sun., June 10 at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
