First of Three ‘True Blood’ Season 5 Fan Posters Is a Bloody Mess

True Blood Gimme Five First of Three True Blood Season 5 Fan Posters Is a Bloody Mess

Waiting on the aftermath of a True Blood season finale can sometimes feel more torturous than waiting on the results of a final paper. That said, if you consider yourself a true die hard fan of the show, then waiting on the results can at times feel like waiting on the results of a pregnancy test – only the pacing, over contemplating, and nail biting can last anywhere from 8-9 months until you finally know the ultimate results, and by that time the baby will have already arrived.

As a result, any tidbit of True Blood content is welcome – to help the wait pass by.

To that end, True Blood Outreach has released the first of three fan posters HBO plans on using to promote the fifth season of its insanely popular vampire series which stars Anna Paquin (Scream 4, The Romantics) and Stephen Moyer (The Caller, Priest).

The fan poster contains a bloody hand print and has the text “GIMMIE FIVE” (which symbolizes the show’s fifth season) underneath.

Check out the first fan poster below:

With the tagline for the fifth season stating “Everything Is At Stake” and the latest round of trailers showing glimpses of a dramatic, action packed season, as well as the return of cast members Michael McMillian and Dennis O’Hare, one has to hope that True Blood can live up to the hype that has attracted so many fans to its previous blood-sucking seasons.

Whether or not the bombardment of fan posters, trailers and teaser trailers seem to be an overkill is up to the beholder but one thing that’s for certain is HBO doesn’t plan on driving a stake through the highly rated True Blood anytime soon. True Blood falls in line on a string of successful HBO television series that include The Sopranos, The Wire, Curb Your Enthusiasm and Boardwalk Empire.

To borrow a vampire phrase, it “sucks” that we have to wait so long for each season of True Blood but like fine wine, or an elder vampire’s blood, True Blood seems to get better with age and never seems to disappoint.

True Blood returns to HBO on June 10th

  1. I liked the look of the trailer but I’m apprehensive about this series. The cast needs to be reduced and to concentrate more on the main characters. I didn’t like the sookie/Eric relationship of last season. Sookie/bill makes more sense, with Eric there trying to mess everything up. I hope Jason and Jess get more screen time. Also make Tara a bad ass vampire, her character (as she was) really got boring always being the victim.

    • The Sookie/Eric attraction/relationship was a big part of the books, not exactly something to avoid in the tv series. I do think Sookie/Bill works better for the characters primarily due to the fact that Anna Paquin(Sookie) and Stephen Moyer(Bill) are married in real life so it tends to make the scenes of passion, love and protection a little more believable due to the real chemistry they have. Just my opinion.

  2. PS and of course more of Pam couldn’t hurt!

  3. I liked the first couple of seasons, but between it just getting silly and delving ever deeper into bein a soap opera (Almost all vampire series and vehicles are…..30 Days Of Night is one that sort of has a love story in the background, but the vampires are more like what you’d expect if they exssted….pure preditors who only see humans as a food source and nothing more)

    Actually if it wasn’t for the great comic relief that Sookie’s brother brings to the show I think it would have become just another cheap and boring soap a long time ago.

  4. I just LOVE true blood and hope that they always have a new season but i’m sure like all great things this to will have an end !!!!!!!!!! I just hope that its not any time soon….

  5. I cant wait until the new season stsarts!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I know that they are together in the books but it just doesn’t work in the series. They should have had Eric forget his time with Sookie like in the books because that created more tension and it drove Eric mad. Maybe if they introduced Quinn that could work. I don’t know where they’re headed with this. Although maybe it’s good they’re not just following the books
