HBO has announced that True Blood season 7 will premiere on Sunday June 22nd! This will be the final season of the series, and it's going to be really interesting to see how they end it. I wasn't the biggest fan of the last couple of seasons of the show, but I'm hoping the show closes out strong. I've included the announcement along with a teaser trailer for you to watch.
"True Blood" begins its ten-episode, seventh and final season on Sunday, June 22 at 9:00 p.m. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, the series takes place in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, after vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. The series follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people's thoughts, vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard). Alan Ball created the show, which is based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
On top of True Blood, HBO has confirmed premiere dates for The Leftovers, which will launch Sunday, June 15th following the season finale of Game of Thrones. Here is some information on that series:
From Damon Lindelof ("LOST") and acclaimed novelist Tom Perrotta (Little Children), "The Leftovers" begins its ten-episode season on Sunday, June 15 at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT), immediately following the season finale of "Game of Thrones." Based on Perrotta's bestselling novel of the same name, the drama series is an original look at The Rapture... because it's not entirely clear The Rapture happened.
Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Charlie Carver, Max Carver, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Michael Gaston, Emily Meade, Annie Q, Margaret Qualley, Amanda Warren and Chris Zylka star. Lindelof serves as the series showrunner.
