Character Posters of 'True Blood' Season 2

May 19, 2009 03:17:01 GMT

One month away from the season 2 premiere, "True Blood" is going full throttle with its promotion. A bunch of character posters are released, showing where the blood is spilled. All the posters are focused on the main characters of the first season, topped up with the new character, Maryann, whose secret with Sam and relationship with Tara will be exposed largely in the new season.

Noticeably missing from the line-up are Nelsan Ellis who plays Lafayette and Deborah Ann Woll who plays the newbie vampire Jessica. Nelsan's absence from the promotional efforts leads to the speculation that he was the one who died in the season 1's cliffhanger. Jessica, meanwhile, could be the recurring character whose presence is not as big as Maryann's. But she will be one of the reasons of Sookie and Bill's cracked relationship.
