Story by Jack Foley
THE biggest TV phenomenon of 2009 returned to the UK on Friday night (February 26, 2010), as True Blood: Season 2 premiered on the FX channel.
It also staked its claim on the digital horizon, as the first episode was immediately made available to download from the iTunes Store after its broadcast.
Indeed, each episode can be purchased from iTunes or alternatively, as a Series Pass, which will download current episodes immediately and future episodes as soon as they become available.
This weekend also marks the date when fans can pre-order the DVD and Blu-ray ahead of the DVD and Blu-Ray retail release on May 17, 2010.
Season two of the show – dubbed ‘a modern classic’ (The Guardian), and ‘stylishly shot and whip smartly written’ (Daily Telegraph) – takes no prisoners as we come back to Bon Temps, home of mystery, Southern sensuality and dark secrets.
For Sookie Stackhouse, life is more dangerous than ever after she and Bill become more deeply involved. Meanwhile, Tara finds herself under a lover’s spell; Sam puts his trust in an unlikely ally; Jason becomes involved with an anti-vampire sect; Eric becomes interested in Sookie after he recruits her to investigate the disappearance of his 2,000-year-old maker and Maryann is revealed to possess a power that can control almost everyone in town.
After making a shocking discovery, Sookie, Bill and Sam must form the last line of defence against a diabolical plan that raises this award-winning series to bloody new heights.
