Every Sunday beginning May 2, HBO will give fans of the show a 'drop' of side stories about the main characters before the new season premieres.
A piece of good news comes for anxious fans of "True Blood". In order to tide fans over before the show officially kicks off the third season in June, HBO will release mini episodes which are written by creator Alan Ball.
Dubbed "A Drop of True Blood", the miniseries contains six episodes. On its official site, HBO said, "We know #waitingsucks. That's why we're giving you six new True Blood mini episodes, written by Alan Ball. A new one premieres each week starting Sunday May 2, directly following the Season 2 replays at 8. It all leads up to the Season 3 premiere June 13, only on HBO."
These episodes are not from the previous seasons and won't be seen in the new one, the trailer says. From the look of it, the miniseries will cover all major and secondary characters from Sookie and Bill to Eric's sidekick, Pam.
