It looks like the vampires in HBO hit show True Blood have met their maker. It has been announced that the forthcoming seventh season will be the last for the show starring Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin and Alexander Skarsgard.
HBO Head Michael Lombardo released a statement saying ”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.”
"From the moment I read Charlaine’s books, I thought there was the potential for something really special," Ball said in a statement. "Then our amazing writers, cast and crew brought her world to life in a way that exceeded my wildest expectations."
Alan Ball was replaced as executive producer by Brian Buckner for the sixth season, and it is Buckner that will be at helm for this final season.
The seventh and final season of True Blood will air on HBO next year.
