AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM :iconi-love-true-blood: CO-FOUNDER :iconpowlam:

President of HBO programming has announced that my, and millions' of other Truebies', favourite TV show, True Blood will be axed in 2014 after season 7. In my personal opinion True Blood needs at least a season 8 to finish things off properly, a major part of Sookie's story (relationship with Eric) hasn't even started to be explored, and with an average of 10.6 million viewers per episode (USA only) we deserve to have it. All we want is for HBO to listen.

Fangs for the memories: True Blood‘s upcoming seventh season will indeed be the show’s last, HBO confirmed Tuesday. :(

“True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,”  said HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo 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 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.”

Buckner, meanwhile, thanked “the most passionate fans in television” and promised to “do our very best to bring Sookie’s story to a close with heart, imagination and, of course, fun.”

True Blood‘s polarizing Season 6 finale on Sunday drew 4.1 million viewers, down from both its season opener (which drew 4.5 mil) and its Season 5 finale (5 mil).

True Blood‘s 10-episode farewell season will premiere in summer 2014.
