“True Blood” has an end date and it looks as though season 7 will be their last one. It is official the upcoming season of “True Blood” will be the last for the ground-breaking show from HBO, according to Yahoo TV on Sept. 3.
HBO’s president of programing released a statement that not only announced the demise of “True Blood,” but he also sang this one of a kind show the praises it deserved. Michael Lombardo calls the final season of “True Blood,” a “fantastic” final season of an “incredible” show.
Now the writer’s thinking caps come into play as they promise to bring Sookie’s story to a “close with a heart, imagination and, of course, fun." Sunday’s season 6 finale drew in 4.1 million viewers, which is down a bit from the opener of the same season which had 4.5 million tune in.
Season 7 will offer 10 episodes, which will premiere in the summer of 2014. It looks like HBO is following the same strategy they've taken with other great shows like the "Sopranos" and "Sex and the City." They take them off the air before they have a chance to burn out.
