It’s a True Blue day for some vampire fans…
HBO has announced that True Blood will come to an end after its upcoming seventh season. The curtain of the vampire drama series will be brought down in summer 2014 after a ten-episode run.
True Blood has been a successful television show since its debut in 2008. Saying goodbye to favourite characters such as Eric Northman and Sookie Stackhouse will leave fans of the show low-spirited.
Confirming the show’s conclusion, HBO program chief Michael Lombardo has said,
“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. 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.”
Blood has been spilt, necks have been bitten. The blood-fest is coming to an end…
That sad you feel like you’ve been bitten on the neck? Or are you proudly holding that cross and waving goodbye to those vampires?
Farewell, True Blood.
