HBO’s True Blood Season 7 Premiere Gets Social!
June 14, 2014 by Rachel Tsoumbakos
HBO and Facebook Unite With Michael MacMillian:
Imagine having to trawl through more than 844,000 comments on HBO’s True Blood Facebook page? To make matters even worse, now imagine having to condense down the very essence of all those comments to make it into something relevant to the True Blood fans who are eagerly anticipating the True Blood Season 7 premiere on June 22nd 2014?
Well, social curation firm Arktan did just that!
And, thanks to all that hard work, Trubie fans will now be able to tune into HBO beginning June 16 2014 for a very special True Blood marathon with a difference. HBO will air a full episode every night leading up to the Season 7 premiere. Michael MacMillian (who played the Reverend Steve Newlin-cum-vampire up until Season 6) will also be on hand to host a themed segment highlighting the previous seasons of True Blood. Thanks to Michael and Arktan, you can now find out, among other things, which is the most popular True Blood villian as well as the fans favorite suitor for Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin).
If you want to join in on the commentary each night, then you need to head on over to Twitter during the marathon and use the hashtag #TrueToTheEnd. Alternatively, you can check out HBO’s True to the End website for all the latest news, interviews and inside scoops on True Blood’s final season.
If you can’t view the whole marathon, at least make sure you free up June 20th 2014, since there will be an exclusive trailer video premiered on that night!
While you wait, you can check out the promo video with Michael MacMillian below:
