True Blood Season 5 Preview: A Royal Return

by at . Comments

It was rather clear when Eric and Bill chose to bury him instead of kill him.

And it was even more clear when Denis O'Hare came out and said he'd be back for season five.

But HBO has now pretty much confirmed the return of Russell Edgington in its first official True Blood promo for the summer ahead, teasing how "nothing stays buried forever" in Bon Temps. The spot was released last night, prior to the series premiere of Luck.

Watch now and decide: Are you excited for thie royal return?
