In a statement earlier today, HBO‘s President of Programming, Michael Lombardo, confirmed True Blood will end next year at the conclusion of it’s 7th season.
“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.”
The final season will premiere in Summer 2014! Check out our interview with Charlaine Harris, the writer and creator of the Sookie Stackhouse novels which inspired True Blood!
