New on DVD & Blu-ray: True Blood: Season Three

By Paulette Cohn

Sexy, scary and bloodsuckingly entertaining, all 12 episodes of the third season of True Blood, HBO`s series featuring vampires, shapeshifters and werewolves, are available today on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download.


In the third season, Bill (Stephen Moyer) has been kidnapped and Sookie (Anna Paquin) is hot on the trail, heading to Mississippi to find him. There she becomes entangled in a world ruled by a powerful Vampire King and the werewolves who do his bidding. Meanwhile, back home in Bon Temps, new threats emerge that make previous problems seem tame by comparison.


Created and Executive Produced by Alan Ball (Six Feet Under®), the Emmy® and Golden Globe®-winning series is based on the popular Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
