HBO's "True Blood" to End After Seven Seasons in 2014
(NEW YORK) -- HBO's hit True Blood is ending with its forthcoming seventh season in 2014, HBO announced Tuesday.
"True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” HBO President of Programming Michael Lombardo said in a statement. "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 vampire drama, starring Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, will get 10 more episodes next summer before calling it quits.
Created by Alan Ball and based on Charlaine Harris’ book series, True Blood has performed well for the cable network. It averaged 10.6 million viewers per episode during its most recent season, which concluded last month.
