Will There be a True Blood Season 8?

August 27, 2013 by  

Brian Buckner is in Negotiations Over True Blood Season 7 – Is This the End?

Anna Paquin stars as Sookie Stackhouse in HBO's True Blood Season 7 - will there be a True Blood Season 8 though?Some trubie fans were initially surprised to hear that HBO’s True Blood would be renewed for a seventh season. Many citing the confusing story lines as the reason why they were turning off. New showrunner, Brian Buckner, however, took a jumble of story lines left over from True Blood Season 5 and streamlined it into a Season 6 which made many fans tune back in. With the shock ending of the Season 6 finale, many fans are now claiming they won’t be back to see how Brian Buckner fixes everything again.

But will True Blood Season 7 be the final season?

Brian Buckner is not planning to give everything away but he did have this to say to TVLine about the possibility of a True Blood Season 8:

That conversation is happening, but we don’t have an answer yet. I’m being told that I will know – which doesn’t mean that I will tell everybody. But I will know when the writers resume in the room [next month] whether or not we’re wrapping it up or not.

HBO president, Michael Lombardo, has also stated in the past that True Blood will run for as long as there is a story to tell.

With the writers heading back on September 3rd to put their heads together for the Season 7 story lines, it is anyone’s guess as to whether they will be told to wrap things up.

I guess we’ll just have to wait until the announcement in made sometime during Season 7 – #WaitingSucks!

Do you think fans will get to see True Blood Season 8? Let us know in the comments below.

    i hope true blood will last for a very long time ! but vampires don’t age. there immortal. so the HBO tv show true blood will for sure be immortal on the big tv screen !. so in a way true blood will never end !.

    I don’t think so after they ruined Warlow and Sookie’s relationship! A lot of people feel me included that they just forced pieces together for the season finale, when they could’ve done more with Warlow’s character!!!!

    I don’t think I can watch another season of Sookie and Bill together, broken up, or a Sookie/Bill/? triangle six seasons and the way the writers, producers, and show runners are flirting with putting them back together for a season 7. Same old storyline with stuff mixed in.

    • Altagracia Hedrington

      I always wanted Sookie back with Bill even though I liked her with Eric, but when I saw her with Warlow I saw something in their relationship that I didn’t see with Eric or even with Bill but they killed him off in the finale which made no sense! :(

    End with Season 7. This show has dragged the revelations for long enough.

    • Lutheranchic

      I agree. I wish this program would be removed from the airwaves. It is a program for sex-crazed people!

  • Lisa Powell

    Even if the storyline wasn’t as great this time I am sure I am not the only Truebie out there that still watches!!! There is a certain sense of escapism I get from this show that I get from no other, and that’s what keeps bringing me back episode after episode…………
