Chris Meloni is joining the fifth series of True Blood this summer and the vampire Roman. Meloni plays the extremely powerful and ancient vampire Roman, the guardian of the governing body for all vampires, the Vampire Authority. He’s also the mastermind behind the mainstreaming movement, which aimed to integrate vampires into human society.
HBO has also release some promotional posters featuring the tagline “everything is at stake”.
True Blood returns to FX UK this autumn, meaning we don’t have to wait too long after the US airings.
