After teasing us for weeks with ... well ... teasers, HBO has finally released the first explosive full-length trailer for True Blood's upcoming fifth season. Let's just say that from the looks of things, the vampire $#!@ is about to hit the vampire fan.

First things first: There's really A LOT going on in this action-packed minute-and-a-half-long trailer, so keep your eyes peeled for some awesome blink-and-you'll-miss-it stuff.

There's definitely a lot of vampire action going on in the upcoming season as we're poised to learn about "The Authority" and its boss, Roman, played by Christopher Meloni.

Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) are, of course, in the thick of it (expect a bromance between those two); Reverend Newlin (Michale McMillian) is back and all fanged up—as we saw in the shocking season-four finale—and so is the former vampire king of Mississippi Russell Edgington (we missed you, Dennis O'Hare).

Also, our favorite waitress, Sookie (Anna Paquin), is rocking those awesome fairy powers of hers again. She's definitely getting more and more powerful as the seasons roll on.

And there's much MUCH more.

Have a look:

What do you guys think of this awesome new trailer? Are you ready for some serious vampire action again?

True Blood season five will premiere on HBO June 10, 2012.
