True Blood, Season 5

Waiting sucks, but we don't have to wait much longer for the new season of True Blood! And based on the recent trailers and interviews we've done with the cast, season five is going to be bloody awesome.

Need some light shed on the mystery of who dug up Russell Edgington? What about the fate of Tara after the deadly season-four finale? We've got scoop on all that, plus 30 Rock, Game of Thrones, Suits and more in today's Spoiler Chat…

Kate A.: True Blood scoop! Who brought Russell back?
Excellent question! Let's ask him, shall we? "It's somebody who nobody knows yet," Dennis O'Hare tells us. "It's a surprising character. And I think you get a hint in episode two, and then a big hint in episode five." One thing we do know for sure: Russell did not grow softer while buried in the cement...except for one thing. "He's still vicious, he's still dangerous, he's still highly charming, but they added all this stuff to him. We get to see him fall in love!" Awww! Ain't nothing sweeter than a former vampire king falling in love, right?

Jeanette in Lansing, Mich.: So is Tara dead or what? #TrueBlood
"[I'm] definitely coming back, just can't tell you quite how," Rutina Wesley reveals to us. "The interesting thing, for me, is the fans watching Tara recover. She kind of becomes a new woman. The journey she's about to embark on is out of control." Out of control in a sense that she's now a ghost yelling at Sookie from beyond the grave? June 10…get here already!

Sarah: Any scoop on 30 Rock's final season?!
Believe us, we'd love to share some 30 Rock endgame tidbits with you, but it's kind of hard when even the actors have no idea what's going to happen! "One thing I really hope that happens is that they really give every character, like, a good wrap up," Katrina Bowden tells us. "I have no idea what they're going to do or how it's going to end." As for fans holding out for a Jack and Liz hookup? Don't hold your breath! "That might be weird. They're like brother and sister!" Bowden says.

Klarissa in Chicago: Anything on The Good Wife? I hate waiting the entire summer to find out what happens with Alicia and her family!
The wait will fly by, we promise. How do we know? Julianna Margulies told us that they go back to work as early as next month! As in a couple of weeks from now! So we'll just stalk the set for you. For now, we'll let Margulies drop a bit of Good Wife scoop on you. "We ended on this note that I thought was so ambiguous in a wonderful way where you see my character want to join her husband and her children and her family and be a part of that cocoon again, but you're not sure if she's goes in the door or not," she tells us. "What they do every season is we start off where we left off in terms of that moment. I'm pretty sure we'll start off from that day." September can't come soon enough.

wmarshall00: Is Tyrion really dead? Best character on the show by far.
We'd be willing to bet our prized direwolf on the fact that Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) will live to see another season on Game of Thrones. He's one of our favorites and we can't imagine a Westeros where he doesn't exist. Speaking of Game of Thrones are you exited about the season finale? And would you be super excited to learn that there is an extra 10 minutes to wrap up season two? Imagine all the heads that could roll in that time!

Calvin: Love the Summer TV premiere calendar. Anything you would recommend?
Based just on the season-two trailer, Boss (August 17, Starz) should be must-watch this season. And Glee's Jonathan Groff is in it, looking all kinds of fine, so it's win-win. You are welcome.

Mariela: Anything on Suits season two! I am dying to see my favorite lawyers back on my TV screen! P.S.: Anything on Rachel and Mike would be greatly appreciated!
Did you say you wanted scoop on Harvey? No? Well, just take when you can get because we've got intel on someone coming into Harvey's (Gabriel Macht) life this season. And not just any someone, a former flame! And she's tightly wrapped up in a case their taking on, so this situation is about to get super messy.
