True Blood To End In 2014, Fans Everywhere Rejoice!

HBO President Michael Lombardo announced yesterday that the previously renewed True Blood will end with it’s seventh season. The final season will consist of 10 episodes and air next summer. The series fell victim to a drop in ratings this past season and if you read our reviews or watched it yourself you know why. Speculation that decreased ratings are the culprit in the series coming to an end which doesn’t give me much hope for it ending well. Minor spoilers after the quote, you’ve been warned.

Lombardo on the end of 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.

This pretty much screams rushed writing which means we will probably get loose ends and silly wrap ups for the town of Bon Temp. I am very happy to see the series go, however. What used to be one of my favorite shows has been disappointing me for 3 seasons now and it is always tough for a fan to watch something they love go down in flames (Buffy fans know how I feel).

The main question that I’m sure is on everyone’s mind for the last season is, WHAT ABOUT ERIC?? Will they actually kill him now they know the series is ending? I mean, they couldn’t have before because ratings would have plummeted but now that they don’t HAVE to keep him will they really kill him? Could this be the big middle finger to all of us who doubted the show? What do you guys think about the end? How do you want the characters to go? Kill everyone or do you want a happy ending for all?
