True Blood Season 6 will feature a number of new characters.
But none will play a more significant role than Arliss Howard's Governor Burrell.
As you can see in the following new promo, this head of state will be dead serious about doing away with members of the undead this summer, urging Louisiana residents in a speech to buy guns... stock up on wooden bullets... shut down all vampire-owned businesses and generally take their country back.
The concluding message on the trailer, which HBO has teased through its True Blood campaign? No one lives forever. Gulp.
True Blood Season 6 kicks off June 16 on HBO.
