We know waiting for the 'True Blood' season premiere sucks (particularly because even into Season 5 HBO still kept pushing that tagline on us), but recent weeks have seen a marked increase in the campaign to get our fangs banging and blood pumping.  First we saw those twenty brand-spanking new photos (including our first look at new villains Christopher Meloni and Peter Mensah), but how feast your eyes on the full set (12!) of Season 5 posters!

Adding the clever new tagline "Everything is at Stake," the twelve posters from 'True Blood' season five highlight all of the show's major characters individually, including former 'Law & Order: SVU' star Christopher Meloni as Roman, a key member of the Vampire Authority, and includes our first season 5 look at King Russell Edgington, newly exhumed from his concrete crypt!  Guess a lack of fresh air suits him, what with all those nasty sunburns having fully healed.

And what's this with Tara, looking plenty healthy and spry considering the Season 4 finale 'And When I Die" - SPOILER ALERT - blasted shotgun pellets clear through her skull, courtesy of Debbie Pelt?  Considering those first episode descriptions that leaked, the mystery is definitely afoot now that Rutina Wesley remains a series regular.

So check out the new posters below, featuring Alcide, Bill, Eric, Jason, Jessica, Lafayette, Pam, Roman, Russell, Sam, Sookie and Tara below, and don't forget to check out 'True Blood's fifth season premiere Sunday, June 10 at 9:00 p.m. on HBO!
