Two thousand and fourteen is an important number for True Blood. It’s the number of plot holes on the HBO series that have made no sense, pairs of boobs we’ve seen, AND times someone has put their life on the life so they could save Sookie for some reason. It’s also the year of the show’s final season, its seventh. WAIT. 2 + 0 + 1 + 4 = 7.
What sort of witchcraft is this?!? Actually, scratch that — let’s pretend we’ve never heard of witches.
“True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” said HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo. “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.”
Buckner, meanwhile, thanked “the most passionate fans in television” and promised to “do our very best to bring Sookie’s story to a close with heart, imagination and, of course, fun.” (Via)
True Blood being “Sookie’s story” is sure to disappoint those who watch the show for the werewolf bureaucracy.
