The seventh season will be the last...
The True Blood will run out after next season. HBO has announced via press release that the series, which wrapped its sixth season last month, will be making its seventh season its last.
HBO president Michael Lombardo said in the announcement, "True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO. 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."
He added, "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."
Brian Buckner will continue as showrunner for the final season. Season six ended with a signficant portion of the vampire population infected with a mutated blood-transmitted virus called "Hep V" and Bon Temps finding protection by making sure every vampire and human were paired up for safe feeding and protection.
