One thing that is consistent with True Blood is the excellent promo posters that HBO produces. It’s aspects like this that make me forget what a mess the show can be and once again this department has produced another excellent teaser for the new season. Season 5 ended with Bill becoming Lilith (or Billith) after he drank her blood. The new promo poster hints at what Bill has become with the ominous tagline “No One Lives Forever.”
The action will be picking up where the show left us at the end of season 5; with Sookie and Eric fleeing the Authority Headquarters and Bill. From the preview it is clear that a war between humans and supernatural beings will be the focus of the season and Bill is also a major threat. True Blood has a habit of spinning its wheels as they introduce multiple new characters and storylines. This leaves older characters languishing and so I remain sceptical about this new season. One aspect of the promo that does intrigue me is the role of Jessica and how she will be involved with Bill’s story; do they still have the maker-progeny bond? We don’t see her, but hearing Anna Camp as Sarah Newlin taking part in this crusade against vampires gets my attention. You can count on True Blood when it comes to the steamier scenes and there is a lot shirtless action alongside the ridiculous plot points.
