Tense new True Blood trailer shows you-know-who's bloody return

Poor Sookie (Anna Paquin). People have been dropping like flies around our favorite kick-ass-fairy-telepathic-waitress, and Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) calling her an "angel of death" sure won't help raise the gal's self-esteem.

And with the return of one of True Blood's favorite Big Bads—Russell Edgington (Denis O'Hare)—things are about to go from bad to worse to wors-er for her in this dramatic new trailer.

The new one-minute trailer features some exciting new footage of Eric (Alexander Skarsgard), Bill (Stephen Moyer), Pam (Kristin Bauer), Sam (Sam Trammell), Alcide (Joe Manganiello), Jason (Ryan Kwanten), Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) and of course Sookie and our new resident witch-brujo Lafayette.

We also have a seriously GQ'ed Roman (Christopher Meloni), the leader of a vampire group called the Authority, who looks like he's NOT there to make BFFs with Bill and Eric.

Also featured is the much-touted and bloody return of the former King of Mississippi himself—our boy Russell—and the former bat$#!@ crazy king is HUNGRY for human blood. We have a feeling that a warm bottle of True Blood won't do it for him, guys.
