Next season will be the last season of HBO’s True Blood as the network has decided to stake it and give it the true death after the end of its ten episode, seventh season story arch next summer.
“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.”
“True Blood” averaged 4.1 million viewers total this season during its season finale. Down over 2 million viewers from it’s Season 5 finale’s combined ratings of 6.3 million viewers.
I BLAME THE FREAKIN FAIRIES! Well that and the fact that Alan Ball and the writers refused season after season to kill off any of the many main characters.
See ya Sookie!
