Sam Merlotte and Rutina Wesley from HBO's 'True Blood'

*Good news if you’re a fan of HBO’s “True Blood.” Every Sunday beginning May 2, HBO will give fans of the show a ‘drop’ of side stories about the main characters before the new season premieres in June.

Dubbed “A Drop of True Blood,” the miniseries contains six episodes.  On its official site, HBO said, “We know waitingsucks. That’s why we’re giving you six new True Blood mini episodes, written by Alan Ball. A new one premieres each week starting Sunday May 2, directly following the Season 2 replays at 8. It all leads up to the Season 3 premiere June 13, only on HBO.”

These episodes are not from the previous seasons and won’t be seen in the new one. Meanwhile, check out the trailer for the new season:
