Watch 3 seasons of True Blood in 5 bloody, sexy minutes

With True Blood coming back to our TV screens for a fourth season in just four days, we can finally say summer's here. If you've never watched the show before and have at last decided to take the plunge—but are afraid you'll be completely lost—don't worry!

A new video will bring you right up to speed with the hit series in less than five info-packed minutes.

Precise, concise and packed chock-full of important info about seasons one through three, the HBO video will tell you all you need to know about our Bon Temps residents, the vampires and other supernatural beings that populate it (two-natured, werewolves, werepanthers, witches, pagan gods and faeries—yes, faeries—just to name a few), and our favorite mind-reading-and-just-discovered-she's-a-faerie waitress, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin).

And for those who've already seen the first three seasons, it can definitely serve as a bit of a refresher course.

From V addiction to Jason's (Ryan Kwanten) stint in the Fellowship of the Sun, Franklin Mott's (James Frain) stalking craziness and Tara's many woes, Alcide's (Joe Manganiello) rippling biceps and the love story between Sookie and Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), and much, so much more, everything's pretty darn covered!

What do you think? Are you ready to take the plunge and watch True Blood on June 26 on HBO?
