In this week’s news roundup for season 3 of True Blood we’ve got the release of a full cast photo, another teaser poster and two more teaser clips featuring Bill and Sookie. If that’s not enough to quench your thirst, there’s also the premiere of a 4-minute minisode dubbed by HBO as A Drop of True Blood.”

With so much vampire-centric news, let’s cut all the chit-chat and get right to…

The Cast Assembled

After weeks of teaser posters, collectible posters and teaser clips HBO has finally released the official cast photo for season 3 of True Blood. Unfortunately, there seems to someone missing. The usual Bon Temps residences are all accounted four, but considering this season is going to include Alcide the werewolf, I figured they would have at least included him in the cast photo.

If one could take a hint from the positioning, it looks like everyone’s favorite sheriff, Eric Northman, is not only front and center in this photo, but also this season.

I’m sure that the Alexander Skarsgard fan club will happy…

A Missing Vampire

Continuing their True Blood season 3 teaser poster campaign, HBO has released the newest addition, which is inspired by the old notion of displaying a missing child on the back of a milk carton. Considering vampires aren’t too fond of milk, they’ve went for a nice bottle of Tru Blood.

While the previous posters took a look at vampires at home and in the work place, this is the first teaser poster that actually references something and someone from the upcoming season of True Blood. Since there is over a month until the start of season 3, let’s hope that HBO continues to actually tease something from the series… not just filling coffee pots full of blood.

Bill & Sookie: Teaser Edition

With HBO being too eager to release ten second clips of what turns out to be ambiguous footage of select scenes from the upcoming season, we’ve waited until there’s more than one before we publish them.

The two new “Waiting Sucks” teasers feature love birds Sookie and Bill in their own separate clips.

Bill, reminding us that while a romantic at heart, he’s still all vampire, leaves a mysterious man screaming about his missing ear. With Bill covered in blood, one would assume that he bit it off – but why?

The violence continues as Sookie, with gun in hand, takes aim and fires at someone or something. Unfortunately or perhaps fortunately (who knows what’s going on), Eric jumps in front of the bullet and takes a hit.

Considering we have no idea when in the season these clips take place, one can only speculate as to what’s actually going on. Although, I’m sure those that have read the books might have an idea.

A Drop of True Blood

Stepping up from short clips and weekly posters, HBO has started a new six-part feature titled “A Drop of True Blood”, which gives viewers a better look at the world of True Blood with 4-minutes clips written by series creator Alan Ball, which lie outside of the series’ storylines.

Says Ball:

“The minisodes provide a wonderful and rare opportunity to take a deeper look into Bon Temps and the characters that live in this colorful town. The scenes are so much fun, and the performances as stellar as always.  I can’t wait to share them with everyone, old fans and new.”

In the premiere episode, Eric and Pam are at the vampire bar Fangtasia auditioning new dancers. Hilarity ensues as a new employee is hired.

In my opinion, this is HBO’s best attempt at teasing season 3 of True Blood. While the clips and posters are nice, the minisodes actually allow viewers to see a complete scene with their favorite characters.

I don’t know about you, but after all this vampire talk, I’m craving of bottle of AB-negative. Good thing HBO sells a bloodless version of True Blood. Now, if only I can figure out how to glamour people, I’ll be all-set.

What do you think of all the True Blood news? Whose ear was Bill biting off? What was Sookie shooting at? Did you enjoy the minisode?

Season 3 of True Blood premiere’s June 13th, on HBO.

  1. blood of truth


  2. ah:( the eric and pam video is not watchable in my area:(
    is there a possibility to get a new link? :) which works worldwide, or atleast europe.

  3. I've read all the books and I will say that the series has done a really good job of taking the story lines in the books and tweaking them just enough that those of us who have read them are kept on our toes. I will say I do NOT like how they have made Tara such an important/central character in the series. In the books she is barely even secondary and as I find her character ridiculously annoying. . . I really would love to see less of her.

    • YOU NO WHAT STAY OFF THE WEB SIGHT IF YOU DONT LIKE ALL THATS IN TRUE BLOOD;[;[;[;[;[;[;[;[;[;[;[;;[;;[[;[;[;[;[;[;[;;[;;;/;[;[;[;[;

  4. I loved the minisode. The second I heard the theme music I literally got giddy. I don't like the Missing Poster as much as I liked the Cup of Joe. I'm glad you waited unitl there were two ten second clips, but I found both of them immensely disappointing. Ten seconds from thirteen hours of footage? Pointless.

  5. About the above 2 questions – Was using “four” instead of “for” intentional? and no Alcide the werewolf? Um, isn't that the point of the wolf next to Eric?

  6. I love this show,but there's two things that I really hope happen.1)They kill off Jason.2)They kill off Tera.

    They are the only two things that I dislike about the show.

    • for one your the most stupidest person i ever met tera and jason make the show funny so no one wants to her your big mouth about what you dont like maybe monday i will tell the cast about your big fat mouth;[STAY OFF THE WEB SIGHHT'[ ;[ ;[

  7. tara wasnt in the books. or not the first one atleast, so that may happen. but jason? nope. i personally love them, they bring a lot of humor to it. :)

  8. Um…doesn’t that wolf in the background suggest Alcide?

    The most intriguing thing to me is how Jessica and Pam seem to be gazing at one another while wearing very similar outfits, including an identical color. Pam *does* go to regular status, according to what I’ve read–and the first minisode suggests she’s maybe looking for a girlfriend. Maybe.

    • are you gay because it sure sounds like it;];]lol and no pam is not wanting a girl friend ”SHE IS A VAMPIRE”so vampires like blood and to them it doesnt matter if its a boy or girl to them its a nice meal just waiting for them they could care less if you watched enough true blood you would no that;{;[;[


  9. i love the show but when it comes to bill and sooke’s relationship i would like them to have split up and sookie go out with Eric. as for the two ten second clips they were not lacking in the imagination department. spice up season 3 is what is needed.

    • i no you just said the truth right thier i would love to see eric and sookie get togather now that bill went missing eric can get a chance

  10. i love true blood eric is my fav but were in the crap did bill go did eric get him or was it another vampire;] :[ were ever he went i hope he pops back up soon in the series;[ ;{

    • true blood is the best show

  11. true blood is the best story i ever seen and i just want to see the next episode,,,thx for this show
