True Blood poster True Blood poster

A new teaser for the upcoming fifth season of True Blood brings tears to our eyes.

In the poster HBO released Wednesday, we see a close-up of an eye crying blood, which is how our undead vampire friends express sorrow or pain. It's not a pretty sight.

First look: Meet Eric's True Blood sister!

In Season 5, we'll encounter the Vampire Authority, including Nora (Lucy Griffiths), the vampire sister of Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgaard). Also, telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) will have to deal with the bad news that uber vamp villain Russell Edgington (Denis O'Hare) isn't dead after all. Now that's something to cry about!

Season 5 will premiere on Sunday, June 10 at 9/8c on HBO.

Are you ready to return to Bon Temps?
