Ready for a fangtastic time? On Sunday, June 10, on HBO, your favorite grown-up vampires are back in the highly-anticipated premiere of the fifth season of the Southern Gothic series. Immerse yourself in a whole new season of intense drama, lust-worthy romance, depraved sexiness, and gruesome violence. The dishy trifecta of Sookie (Anna Paquin), Bill (Stephen Moyer), and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), and a rotating cast of blood-thirsty vampires, warewolves, and shapeshifters will make your skin crawl and heart beat faster.
To get you ready for the new season, here’s a recap of Season 4:
Sookie returns to Bon Temps from Fairie Land to find that Bill is the new King of Louisiana, and that her friends and brother have forgotten her (although she was gone an entire year, in Fairie time it was only a few minutes). Antonia, a powerful witch from the 16th century, takes over the body of the witch Marnie in order to exact revenge on the vampires. Antonia tries to stop after realizing how much suffering she’s causing, but Marnie is now addicted to Antonia’s powers and tries to steal them. Sookie starts a romance with Eric; Lafayette becomes a medium; Alcide and Debbie have relationship troubles; Jason, Hoyt, and Jessica find themselves in a love triangle. The final cliffhangers involve the return of Russell Edgington and the shooting of Tara.
