Sookie fans, rejoice: HBO just announced that the fifth season of True Blood will begin June 10. The pay network will air 12 episodes of the Alan Ball drama featuring Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard.

And the much-anticipated new drama from Aaron Sorkin has earned a start date.

The cast also includes John Gallagher Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Dev Patel, Olivia Munn, and Sam Waterston.
