"True Blood" will be canceled after season 7. The hugely successful vampire series airing on HBO will end its run in 2014. Huffinton Post reports Sept. 3 that Michael Lombardo, president of programming at HBO, released a statement regarding the cancellation of "True Blood."
Lombardo shared that the "True Blood" trilogy by Charlaine Harris was well cast by Alan Ball. Stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Camp, Joe Manganiello, and the rest of the "True Blood" cast will be missed in their roles on the vampire drama. Lombardo said it will be difficult saying "goodbye to the residents of Bon Temps, but I look forward to what promises to be a fantastic final chapter of this incredible show."
Brian Buckner took over where Alan Ball left off for the series. Lombardo thanked Buckner for his work on "True Blood" as well. He told The Hollywood Reporter to expect more back to the basics type of storylines in which the relationships between humans and vampires are explored.
When "True Blood" is canceled after season 7, viewers will watch how Sookie's story ends. Several spoilers have began speculating how the show concludes in relation to how the books reveal the outcome.
"True Blood" season 7 returns next summer for the final installment on HBO.
