(Warning: Contains spoilers) Last summer, season four of True Blood killed off a number of characters, and left the fate of others hanging in the air. Jesus, Nan, Tommy, Marcus and Marnie (among plenty others) all bit the dust. When the season returns this June we'll discover the outcome of Tara's (Rutina Wesley) fatal looking encounter with Debbie (Brit Morgan).
Take a look at some of the spoilers that have been released for season five of True Blood.
New Faerie In Town
The British Royal family seems to be infiltrating the upcoming season of HBO's blood draining hit show. Camilla Luddington, known for her portrayal of Kate Middleton in Lifetime's made-for-TV movie, William and Kate, has been cast as a faerie in season five.
Luddington will have a reoccurring role in the latest season. According to Deadline.com, Luddington will play Claudette, one of Claude's (Giles Matthey) many sisters, who gives Sookie (Anna Paquin) insight into what it means to be a faerie.

Guess Who's Back
True Blood's teaser said that nothing stays buried in Bon Temps. That must mean one thing, Russell Edgington (Denis O'Hare) is back. Raelle Tucker, co-executive producer for the show confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that Russell is not dead. It's safe to assume the kind of Mississippi is not gone for good, said Tucker.
Another spoiler is that former Fellowship of the Sun Leader Steve Newlin (Michael McMillian) will also reappear...but not as the jesus loving, vampire hating preacher. Newlin will be returning as a vampire to pay a visit to Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten). I will say that Steve's reason for returning to Jason is not all what you expect, Tucker teases.
