True Blood’s third season starts Sunday

Day and date with HBO in the United States, True Blood begins its third season this Sunday in Canada on HBO Canada.

The show chronicles the goings on in the fictional Louisiana town of Bon Temps where vampires live openly amongst their human counterparts, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood.

Based on the The Southern Vampire Mysteries series of novels by Charlaine Harris, the series centers on Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a telepathic waitress at a bar, who falls in love with vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer).

Season three picks up picks up after the season two finale where Maryann’s (Michelle Forbes) wild wedding party came to a bloody and violent end resulting in the long overdue demise of the feared maenad; the townspeople of Bon Temps finally snapped out of Maryann’s dangerous trance; Queen Sophie-Anne (Evan Rachel Wood) issued a clear warning to Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) telling him to keep the lid on who’s really dealing vampire blood to humans; and vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Sookie Stackhouse’s (Anna Paquin) love story seemed to come full circle with a romantic marriage proposal – that is, until Bill suddenly disappeared in the season finale cliff hanger.

True Blood Season 3 begins Sunday June 13th ET/MT on HBO Canada.
