Just hours ago, HBO made a (not so) shocking announcement about True Blood. Click below to read more.

True BloodJust a few hours ago, HBO announced that its giving the axe to one of its top grossing shows, TRUE BLOOD. The final season for TRUE BLOOD will be its upcoming 2014 season debuting in Summer 2014.

 

Are we surprised? Not entirely. Since its inception, TRUE BLOOD has the highest ratings HBO has seen since THE SOPRANOS; however, avid fans of the books have expressed how unhappy they are with how the show has strayed too far from the books. Also, this past season, season 6, saw the first season without show creator Alan Ball. TRUE BLOOD stars Anna Paquin, Bill Moyer, Alexander Skarsgard, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Carrie Preston, and Nelsan Ellis.

 

For those who live under a rock, TRUE BLOOD follows the perils of half-faerie Sookie Stackhouse after vampires “come out of the coffin.” Throughout its six seasons (the 6th season just ended not too long ago), viewers have been introduced to werewolves, werepanthers, faeries, maenads, and shape shifters. Viewers have also witnessed more naked bodies than any other show we can think of (besides adult movies, obviously).

 

TRUE BLOOD is based off  Charlaine Harris’ SOOKIE STACKHOUSE SERIES. The books are wildly popular, with most of the books hitting the Best Seller List.
