True Blood has been an important show for HBO, which has averaged over 4 million viewers in each season’s finale, and show creators are predicting at least that many followers will be tuned in to see how the story wraps up for Sookie and the residents of Bon Temps in its conclusive season.

The HBO series revolves around Sookie Stackhouse, played by Anna Paquin, a telepathic Halfling who works as a waitress at Merlotte's Bar and Grill and her interactions with the newly found population of vampires who are able to survive with the creation of synthetic blood ("Tru Blood") by Japanese scientists.

The vampires of the world suffer some in-fighting with those who wish to integrate into human society by campaigning for citizenship and equal rights – this contrasts with those who think that human-vampire co-existence is impossible because it is in conflict with the inherently violent nature of vampires.

Following this season there may be more True Blood for fans to enjoy, as there is already chatter of a musical.

HBO confirmed to Variety that it’s in “very early discussions” about the project, which could bring big musical numbers to the cult, hit. Since Glee came onto the scene in 2009, television shows have moved in the direction of writing their stories with song. Combine the popularity of vampire romance with that of a singing cast, it is almost a guaranteed success.

The musical, which will be presented to the network next year, will revolve around protagonist Sookie Stackhouse, and the rest of the cast.

With fan-favorite vampire Eric Northman in jeopardy of dying the true death, it’s going to be hard to keep your eyes off of the action. can enjoy every bite, sip and sultry scene of the final season of True Blood with these Hornitos® Blood Red and Kiss of Death cocktails.
