Will There be a True Blood Season 8?

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