True Blood Season 3 premiere date: June 13th!

Have you been chomping at the bit for new episodes of HBO’s vampire hit True Blood?

There’s light at the end of the very long tunnel- HBO has finally released a premiere date for Season Three of the popular vampire drama. Season Two left things on a bit of a cliffhanger, with the ostensibly forcible disappearance of one of Sookie’s many supernatural suitors and a hanging marriage proposal. HBO announced the plans on True Blood‘s Facebook fan page (no teasers, though, much to everyone’s disappointment) and MTV had this to say about the widespread anticipation:

This is so exciting for oh-so-many reasons (you know, besides the fact that Alexander Skarsgard will finally return — naked — to our living rooms), but because we don’t have enough time or space to list them all, just know that this chapter of the show will flaunt a badass new werewolf (who comes complete with real wolves), a new boy toy for Lafayette, a new girl for boy toy Jason Stackhouse, an “erotic connection” between Sam and Bill and, last but not least, cameos by Godric!!

Although introduction of a date is definitely a positive development, we’ve still got almost three months to wait until the first episode of True Blood hit airwaves on June 13th, which is kind of a bummer.
