How Will it End for Sookie Stackhouse?
It is with a heavy heart that I break the news today: HBO’s True Blood Season 7 will be the last. After the summer of 2014, we will no longer be able to tune in and find out what’s going down in the wacky little down of Bon Temps. We will no longer be able to swoon over Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) as he sits upon his throne in Fangtasia. Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) will no longer have to flip his famous burgers and Ginger (Tara Buck) will be silenced for good.
HBO’s president of programming, Michael Lombardo had the following to say via a press release yesterday:
“’True Blood‘ has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” noted Lombardo. “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.”
So, how do you think HBO and Brian Buckner will end this show? Will it follow the books closely in regards to who Sookie ends up with? Will Bill (Stephen Moyer) finally, truly redeem himself with Sookie and the audience? Only the summer of 2014 will be reveal all your True Blood answers!
