True Blood to end next year

2013-09-04_1113It’s going to be one almighty time in Bon Temps.

HBO has announced that next year’s season of True Blood will be its last.

The seventh season will comprise another 10 episodes.

True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” said HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo in a statement.

“Alan Ball took the books by Charlaine Harris, assembled a brilliant cast led by the magnificent Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie Stackhouse, and crafted a show that has taken its many devoted fans on an unforgettable journey. Alan passed the baton to Brian Buckner, who led our fantastic writers and crew in crafting a spectacular sixth season, and he will lead us through the seventh and final season of this amazing show. Together with its legions of fans, it will be hard to say goodbye to the residents of Bon Temps, but I look forward to what promises to be a fantastic final chapter of this incredible show.”

Alan Ball added, “From the moment I read Charlaine’s books, I thought there was potential for something really special. Then our amazing writers, cast and crew brought her world to life in a way that exceeded my wildest expectations. I’m deeply grateful to HBO for being true partners and collaborators, and, of course, to the viewers who chose to spend Sunday nights in Bon Temps with us.”

True Blood is HBO’s third-most-watched original scripted series ever, trailing only The Sopranos and Game of Thrones.

  1. Good!

    I’ve enjoyed most seasons of TB, but to take it back to a soap revolving around Sookie’s love life after 3 series of armageddon was just so damn frustrating (also, if you’re trying to set up for the old soap format, why the need for the slightly lame cliff hanger…?).

    Breaking Bad knew when to call it quits and I think its fans would agree that they haven’t produced a bad series yet!

  2. This show has had its ups and downs over the years but I still love it! Lets hope they wrap all the story lines ups neatly (there is so many of them! lol)
