'True Blood' Season 5 Trailer: Russell Returns & Tara's Fate Is Revealed

New footage from the show’s upcoming fifth season gives major clues to our most burning questions — and, as always, leaves new questions to be answered.

True Blood‘s fifth season premieres June 10 on HBO, which means we’re just 12 days away from finding out whether or not Tara (Rutina Wesley) survived that seemingly fatal gunshot to her head. We can only speculate until then, but this brand-new trailer gives us our biggest clue yet: A teary Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) tells Sookie (Anna Paquin), “You survived, you always do,” seeming to imply that someone else did not fare so well.

But when Sookie’s not mourning the loss of her best friend, she’s cowering in fear over the return of Russell Edgington (Denis O’Hare) — and by “cowering in fear,” I mean brushing it off with sassy one-liners.

Watch the new trailer below, then vote: Do YOU think Tara is alive?
