Back in July HBO confirmed that the seventh season of 'True Blood' would be expected in the Summer of 2014. And whilst many True Bloodians were elated at the news today's announcement will certainly deflate that excitement somewhat. The network have confirmed that season 7 will indeed be the last from Sookie Stackhouse and the gang. The final season airing next Summer will run for 10 episodes up until it finally concludes paving the way for new TV shows that'll do their best to fill the gap. 'True Blood' stars Anna Paquin ('Scream 4'), Alexander Skarsgård ('Battleship'), Ryan Kwanten and Stephen Moyer. Executive producer Brian Buckner returns for the final season as the showrunner.
"The series follows Sookie Stackhouse, a barmaid living in Louisiana who can read people's minds, and how her life is turned upside down when the Vampire Bill, walks into her place of employment two years after vampires 'came out of the coffin' on national television."
"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."
