HBO has been doing a very good job of building anticipation for the season season of the Southern Gothic vampire soap "True Blood."

First there was the release of 10 new "True Blood" pictures, featuring both familiar fanged friends and a host of new characters.

There there was last week's PaleyFest '09 "True Blood" panel, which offered tantalizing tidbits for those lucky enough to secure tickets. We weren't, alas.

Now comes the release of the first video footage from the second season.

Truly, for "True Blood" fans, Jun 14 can't get here soon enough.

Now about that clip, it features Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Sookie (Golden Globe winner Anna Paquin) and Bill's new vampire ward Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll), but it also features something creepy and new at the end.
