Season 4 refers, collectively, to the 12 episodes that comprise the fourth season of the HBO original series True Blood. Debuting on Sunday, June 26, 2011 to a modest 5.42 million viewers, the season makes its appearance starring with the series' 37th episode overall, "She's Not There". The series continued to acquire followers, as episodes aired on subsequent Sundays, airing over a duration of a 77 day period. The series' fourth season came to an end on Sunday, September 11, 2011, airing to a viewership of 5.05 million viewers, with the episode "And When I Die". Ending in the anachronistic Hollywood stereotype of leaving the viewer in utter suspense, the chronicles of Sookie continue in the series' fifth season.

Loosely based on Dead to the World, the fourth book in the The Southern Vampire Mysteries collection, a series of books written by award winning American author Charlaine Harris, the series chronicle the story of Sookie Stackhouse, a young telepathic waitress living in the small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana. As in the True Blood Season 4 written counterpart, Dead to the World, Sookie is led through a world possessing an ever increasingly large amount of supernatural occurrences that have been happening since vampires have "come out of the coffin", mainstreaming with their human counterparts, due to the advent of Tru Blood, a synthesized version of human blood, that vampires can easily purchase, thus assuring the public that vampires are now safe to be around, and that they are no longer a threat to the human race.

The series' fourth season received an American DVD release on May 29, 2012.
