TRUE BLOOD Season Five Gets Its Blu-ray Date

I’ve kind of lost track of TRUE BLOOD this season. I keep meaning to play catch up on VOD but just don’t seem to get around to it. Looks like I’ll be able to take care of it on Blu-ray as HBO has announced the Season Five release.

Not a lot of info on the release yet other than the May 21st release date and the fact that the DVD version is going to set back about $60 while the Blu-ray will go for around $80. Also the DVD version will be pretty bare bones featuring only audio commentaries while the Blu-ray will go a little more in depth with character bios and other assorted goodies. I’m sure detailed info is heading our way soon.

So, what all went down in Season Five?

“Returning for its fifth season, “True Blood” is HBO’s sexy, scary, wildly entertaining drama series from Oscar- and Emmy-winner Alan Ball (“Six Feet Under”) and based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. In addition to returning cast favorites – human/faerie waitress Sookie Stackhouse, her vampire suitors Bill Compton and Eric Northman, soul-searching pal Tara, shape-shifting boss Sam, rakish brother Jason, clairvoyant Lafayette and teen-vamp Jessica – Season 5 introduces a whole new wave of otherworldly characters. There’s Vampire Guardian Roman, president of the Vampire Authority, who wants co-existence between humans and vampires; vampire zealot Salome (yes, the Salome), intent on recreating the world in God’s vampyric image; Authority Chancellor Nora, who shares the same maker as Eric; werewolves J.D. and Martha, who want a reluctant Alcide to take his rightful place as packmaster; and many more. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, “True Blood” Season 5 goes deep into the battle between the Vampire Authority and “vampire fundamentalists” – a political power play whose outcome could decide not only the fate of Sookie and her Bon Temps friends, but of all human existence.“
