The Vampire series with the most quirks, gore and sexy scenes will be ending in 2014. True Blood is based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries series of novels by Charlaine Harris. The co-existence of vampires and humans are put to the test as the story unfolds in Bon Temps, Louisian, with dangerous consequences. Fairies, werewolves, witches and all sorts of supernatural creatures are thrown in the mix, with a waitress and a century old vampire in the middle trying to grasp their new found love for one another.
Since the first episode premiered on September 7, 2008, “True Blood” has become one of HBO’s most successful programs to air on Television. The sixth season of “True Blood” ended last month with an average gross audience of 10.6 million viewers per episode. Anna Paquin (waitress Sookie Stackhouse) and Stephen Moyer (vampire Bill Compton) have been recognized for their outstanding performances, catapulting the blood thirsty show in to the record books.
The multi-award winning series has been recognized for their outstanding cast at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards and was selected as “One of the 10 Best TV Programs” in 2009 by the American Film Institute. The list of accolades continues with awards for “Favorite TV Obsession”, Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble and more.
HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo released a statement saying:
“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.”
The announcement was made on September 3.
