HBO’s fantasy phenomenon True Blood will be coming to an end as it approaches its seventh season next year, and Stephen Moyer thinks HBO’s decision to end the series is what’s best for show. “I think they made the right call to say, ‘Let's finish it on a massive run of 10 episodes’,” Moyer expressed in an interview with TV Line. “It was either going to be one season or two seasons… and I would’ve definitely [stayed] on. But it’s very difficult with a show like ours to keep finding a Big Bad and creating all the drama around it,” he added. Moyer then discussed how his character Bill has made some radical progressions throughout the show. “I think that it’s really hard. The characters can’t [always] be who the audience — or the actor — wants them to be at all times. That would be dull,” Moyer explained. He continued by saying “A bunch of people loved Bill and Sookie together, but a whole bunch of people didn’t. So you can’t just please this bunch or that bunch. As [series creator] Alan Ball once said, ‘I’m not interested in people being happy.’ And I’ve always said, as soon as you see one of our couples get together, you know [they're] f—ed. As soon as Hoyt and Jessica got together I was like ‘No! They’re going to f—ing kill this, I know they are!’ Because [that relationship] was so beautiful.” When asked how he felt about the show coming to a close, Moyer remarked the he felt sad.“You know what a crazy group of people it is. Around Episode 4 or 5 [of every season] we always start getting panicked about that season ending, because it’s a f—ing family. That word is bandied about a little bit too much, but it really does feel like [a family]. I’m going to be very excited about what’s to come [career-wise], but slightly bereft that it’s all going to be done.” The final season of True Blood will air in Summer 2014.
