'True Blood' Will End After Next Season

Sorry Truebies. HBO announced today that the seventh season of its successful supernatural series, “True Blood” will be the last.

In a statement released and reported over at EW, HBO President of Programming, Michael Lombardo praised the series and those associated with “True Blood.”

"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 ten episodes will air starting next summer and we'll continue to bring you recaps until the end. We’ll also keep you up-to-date on any more “True Blood” news.
