Last season on "True Blood," Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) learned that she was part fairy and that her blood had an especially potent effect on vampires. Fed up with being what she described as "vampire crack," Sookie renounced her vampire suitors Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård) and accepted the offer of her fairy god-mother Claudine (Lara Pulver) and left Earth behind to journey to the Fae Realm.

That was probably a mistake.

In this extended eight minute preview from the fourth season premiere of "True Blood," Sookie arrives in the Fae Realm and discovers that it isn't what she expected. She also finds her grandfather, Earl Stackhouse (Gary Cole), whom she hasn't seen in twenty years…



"True Blood" is adding a number of characters to the show this season, including Fiona Shaw as Marnie, Courtney Ford as Portia Bellefleuer, Dane DeHaan as Timbo, Janina Gavankar as Luna, Alexandra Breckenridge as Daisy and Daniel Buran as Raoul.

Don't miss the fourth season premiere of "True Blood" Sunday, June 26 only on HBO!
