True Blood's upcoming seventh season will be its last, HBO announced Tuesday.
"True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO," HBO President Michael Lombardo said in a statement. "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 [showrunner] 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."
True Blood's final season will consist of 10 episodes, debuting next summer. Buckner recently told TVGuide.com that Season 7 will "tell a simpler story" that will "return to the show's promise in Season 1" of examining the relationships between humans and vampires.
Are you sad True Blood is ending or is it time to say goodbye to Bon Temps?

||This is a great decision on the HBO part. I don't watch True Blood anymore, but seven seasons of any show is just enough, IMO.|

||Definitely for the best. Each season has gotten progressively worse.|

|It's time. The show really started to go downhill after Season 2.|

That made me chuckle. And wonder if perhaps they'd have been better off with a series of movies instead. That certainly would have controlled the plot.
I don't know whether I'm ready to let it go because it's just a silly little soap-opera-esque show, fills the summer nicely and is a good cooldown after things like "Game of Thrones." I don't think it's full-on terrible, and now that the writers are done getting to a fresh scene it might actually work. So...yeah. I'm not sure what to think.

||Good riddance. I give them credit for trying to reset the show at the end of this last season, but the damage has already been done.|
