BREAKING NEWS: HBO Announces After True Blood Season 7 it Will Be Dead and Gone

September 3, 2013 by  

How Will it End for Sookie Stackhouse?

Ann Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse) and Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) star in HBO's True BloodIt 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!

    I hope this isn’t because of the outcry of no one wanting to see the same story line of Sookie and Bill and the way the loyal fans of Alexander Skarsgard thought he had been wronged? True Blood still have a lot of stories to tell. I just think the writing and producing hurt this season. Whatever Alan Ball’s vision for the show should have been forgotten when he jumped ship to allow for a smooth transition in show ruuners. Although the actors may not like what is said you have to put yourself in our shoes because I’m sure they wouldn’t stand not getting the product they pay for. Thanks for misleading us to believe True Blood was returning to it’s roots and also thanks for leaving us more confused as you have these past couple of years because 10 episodes is not enough to do as you promised close the loop on story lines and incorporate the rest of the cast members. Last but not least I know as a fan when I’m receiving a jilt line thank you for showing me how you really feel about my support

    It is sad news! There is no way they can follow the books at this point, with how far they have veered away from those original story lines. What I am hoping for, is that knowing this is the final season, the writers will end the series on a high note! Whether Sookie stays with Alcide (yum!), and at least a friendship starts again with Bill? Either way, we have to get past the Hep- V infected vampires first! And we have to find out if Pam is able to save Eric!! I also hope we get a full 12 episodes, or better yet 14, to make up for having only 10 episodes this year!
