"True Blood" has been officially cancelled by HBO. The cable network made the big announcement on Tuesday, September 3 claiming that the vampire thriller story will wrap up and come to an end following next summer's season 7 according to Hollywood Life reports.
HBO president Michael Lombardo released the following statement:
"True Blood" has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO. 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."
First the "Twilight Saga," and now the sad news that Sunday night on HBO will no longer include "True Blood," leaving the "Vampire Diaries" as the only running vampire series currently available for the blood thirsty fans.
Are you surprised to hear that "True Blood" has been cancelled, or are you looking forward to seeing a dramatic conclusion and moving on to the next big fad in HBO made for cable series?
What subject matter do you believe HBO will move on too now that they have closed out the mob and vampire subjects on the network?
