As True Blood starts filming Season 6 in January, show creator, Alan Ball’s new show will be making its debut on Cinemax!

The departing showrunner may not be directing Billith’s rise to power, but his new show, Banshee, will have just as much danger, forbidden elements, and bloodshed as our favorite vampire show.

Back in August, we saw a juicy teaser filled with sex, secrets, and violence, but now we have an official trailer!

Check out the trailer over at Entertainment Weekly.

In the video, we see ex-convict Lucas Hood driving into “the one place [he] absolutely should not go” — the small Amish town of Banshee, Penn. where he assumes the identity of the new sheriff, all the while escaping the gangsters from his past.

Seems like a real doozy for Lucas, but we’re excited to see what Alan has in store. The dangerous action-drama will premiere on Jan. 11, 2013 at 10 p.m. ET on Cinemax, so set your DVRs, Truebies!
