True Blood: Season 4 scene

Anna Paquin and the boys return for True Blood: Season 4.

Sookie Stackhouse and her Southern-friend cohorts return in HBO’s acclaimed vampire-ridden, gothic horror-flavored, soap opera-styled television series True Blood: The Complete Fourth Season. (Oh, and there are werewolves, fairies, witches and shape-shifters prowling the landscape, as well.)

Based on the Sookie Stackhouse series of novels by Charlaine Harris, True Blood remains one of HBO’s strongest TV shows as it readies for its Season Five premiere in June.

The Complete Fourth Season finds Sookie (Anna Paquin, Almost Famous) embroiled in a love triangle and tangling with a charismatic witch, while Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), Tara (Rutina Wesley),  Jesus (Kevin Alejandro) must deal with their temptations with otherworldly powers as Bill (Stephen Moyer) takes it all in. Meanwhile, Jessica tries to adjust to domestic life, Jason (Ryan Kwanten) finds himself alone in were-panther territory, and Alcide (Joe Manganiello) gets caught in the clutches of an old flame.

The Blu-ray/DVD Combo is available as part of HBO’s branded “Blu-ray with HBO Select” package, which includes a Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy of True Blood. It’s the first TV series box set to feature all three formats.
