True Blood Prepares To Air Final Season This June, Debuts TrailerBy: Tobias Roth - April 4, 2014
Several shows have been coming to an end in the past year, and True Blood is another show that will be added to the list. In order to get fans excited for the show’s final season, HBO has released its first promo.
Mad Men is also set to end this year, with its seventh season premiering in a couple weeks. After nine years on the year, How I Met Your Mother also came to an end this week, and its finale was received with mixed reactions by its many fans.
True Blood premiered the same season as AMC’s Mad Men, and will be ending with its seventh, and final season, with the beginning of the end set to premiere on June 22, 2014. HBO’s final season of True Blood will contain 10 episodes.
The series is a vampire drama, but has a much more widespread audience than shows such as The Vampire Diaries. The plot involves a telepathic waitress named Sookie Stackhouse who encounters a strange new supernatural world when she meets the mysterious Bill, a southern Louisiana gentleman and vampire.
In addition to the final season of True Blood premiering on June 22, the network announced that will be airing the series premiere of The Leftovers on June 15th, a show that is based on a book by Tom Perrotta. The show is being developed by Damon Lindelof, who many will remember as one of the producers of Lost, and features an ensemble cast that includes Justin Theroux and Liv Tyler.
The first promotional video that has been released for the series opens with a trip through the Bon Temps graveyard, showing numerous headstones, and reminding fans of all of the different people that have died throughout the show.
The sequence ends on a headstone that reads “True Blood, 2008-2014,” in a moment that could trigger some emotion from fans. The series stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, and features an ensemble cast that has helped Alexander Skarsgård become a star in recent years.
Speaking on the final season of the show, Stephen Moyer said last year that “I’m really excited, really sad. It’s just a group of people that I absolutely love and it’s certainly the happiest and warmest set I’ve ever been on, so that’s going to be hard to walk away from.”
Tune into HBO on June 22 at 9 p.m. ET for the first of the final 10 episodes of HBO’s True Blood. Are fans excited for the show to return, or is everyone simply sad that it is almost over?
