True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” noted 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.”

This show has run its course. Was great the first couple of seasons but then just got too out there when they started adding Faries and warepanthers etc... Way too many supernatural things going on in that town. Should have just stuck with the vampires and shifters.

It was great for about a season and a half. Then it was terrible. Its been "undead" for way too long; a stake through the heart is appropriate.


It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

I thought the same thing. Just a bit too off the rails after the second season or so.

But the series is based on the books, which has Fairies and other creatures. So in that case, they were just following the source material.

ya but seems like they tried to just do too much with this show. Really hard to fit everything from a book into a tv show. Characters got lost many times on this show and I think it has a lot to do with the writers trying to include too many different creatures. Really enjoyed the first two seasons but after that parts of the story just fell off and loose ends were not tied up.

To be fair, I've actually never read the books, so don't really know how far off the rails the tv series has gotten. I'm fine with it ending, I still have Boardwalk Empire :)

What really blew it for me was they established this "undying love" theme back in the beginning between Sookie and Bill. Then they just walked all over it and tossed it in the trash can, and tried to reinvent that with her and Eric, then they chucked that. They lost their emotional compass and focus long, long ago. It's been adrift conceptually for years with no one to care about.
