True Blood will air its seventh and final season this summer. The good news is that FOX has moved True Blood from its usual Autumn slot to premiere this July in the UK, just a couple of weeks after it launches in the US.
Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humour, True Blood takes place in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, after vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source.
The series follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård).
Alan Ball created the show, which is based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
