Are you prepared to say goodbye to Sookie and her supernatural friends? Ready or not, the final 10 episodes are coming in 2014!
The vampires of Bon Temps may have managed to escape the apocalypse during True Blood‘s sixth season, but now, they face a fate far worse than the true death: a series finale! HBO confirmed Sept. 3 that next summer will usher in the final season of the long-running series.
Michael Lombardo, the network’s president of programming, released the following statement:
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.
So there you have it. After seven epic seasons, Sookie and friends will say goodbye in 2014.
