HBO to Kill Off True Blood After Final Season 7!

Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming has confirmed that Season 7 of True Blood will be the last and final season of HBO’s favorite vampire TV series. Season 7 will run for 10 episodes and end in 2014. The popular vampire TV series is one of HBO’s top rated TV series with an average gross audience of 10.6 million viewers per episode. Farewell True Blood, here’s hoping that they kill the series off with a major bang! The series has had it’s ups and downs but True Blood Season 6 was a great comeback from the prior pitfalls. Eric Northman is out there thinking whether or not he should terrorize the HBO executives.

"True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO," noted HBO programming head Michael 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."

"From the moment I read Charlaine’s books, I thought there was potential for something really special," says Alan Ball. "Then our amazing writers, cast and crew brought her world to life in a way that exceeded my wildest expectations. I’m deeply grateful to HBO for being true partners and collaborators, and, of course, to the viewers who chose to spend Sunday nights in Bon Temps with us."

Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, True Blood takes place in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, after vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. The series follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, vampireBill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard). Alan Ball (creator of the Emmy-winning HBO series "Six Feet Under") created the show, which is based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
