Despondent that you'll have to wait until June 16 for the premiere of 'True Blood' season 6? Wait no longer, for the first official trailer for the season is here! Showing before the big 'Game of Thrones' season 3 preview tonight, HBO has issued a brand-new look at the sixth season of HBO's vampire soap, with plenty of blood-soaked Bill Compton and our first look at the mysterious Macklyn, played by cinema legend Rutger Hauer. From what we can tell, the war between vampires and humans is definitely on.

Along with the recent show-runner swap changing from Mark Hudis to Bryan Buckner, season 5 guest star and former ‘Last Resort’ star Robert Patrick has been upgraded to series regular, while ‘True Blood’ season 6 also features Luke Grimes as the “Jim Morrison of vampires,” ‘House‘s Karolina Wydra, Rutger Hauer as mysterious vampire Macklyn, ‘Rubicon’s’ Arliss Howard as  Louisiana Governor Truman Burrell, and ‘Eastenders’ star Robert Kazinsky as a series regular and new Fae love interest to Sookie.

Few other details are available on the sixth season of HBO’s fang-banging hit, though it’s known that ‘True Blood’ season 6 will take place over 10 episodes, down from the usual 12, largely to accommodate series star Anna Paquin’s pregnancy with co-star Stephen Moyer.
