TORONTO, April 1 /CNW/ – A slew of misfits – both human and supernatural – bring even more mayhem to Bon Temps, Louisiana, when the third season of HBO’s hit series True Blood premieres on Sunday, June 13 at 9 p.m. ET/MT on HBO Canada, a multiplex channel of Astral Media’s The Movie Network (Eastern Canada) and Corus Entertainment’s Movie Central (Western Canada).

True Blood is executive produced and created by Oscar(R)- and Emmy(R)-winner Alan Ball, and is based on the best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris. The series follows the sexy, intense and wildly entertaining tale of a small Louisiana town where vampires live openly amongst their human counterparts, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood.

In the season two finale, 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 Skarsgard) 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 also stars Ryan Kwanten, Sam Trammell, Rutina Wesley, Nelsan Ellis, Carrie Preston, Deborah Ann Woll, Todd Lowe, Jim Parrack, William Sanderson and Chris Bauer.
