After seven seasons and 80 episodes, the vampires of HBO’s True Blood say goodbye to the small screen

One of the most sensual, frightening and successful HBO series comes to an end August 24th

tb-s06e01-8MIAMI – HBO announces the true death of True Blood, the successful Emmy® nominated drama series, with its final episode titled “Thank You” airing next Sunday, August 24th at 21:00hrs* in the Caribbean, simultaneously with the United States.

Since its premiere in 2008, True Blood has been a hit with viewers and critics around the world, combining romance, suspense and mystery while sharing with fans the story of Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and her love triangle with the seductive vampires Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård), along with the complex and mysterious lives of their friends – and enemies – in the town of Bon Temps.

Throughout its seven seasons, True Blood has taken us on an intense journey, from the invention of synthetic blood and the challenges that arose from the integration of humans and vampires, to the mysterious world of fairies and the events that unfolded at Merlotte’s and Fangtasia. We experienced Sookie’s suffering throughout her adventures in love, whether it was with a vampire, a werewolf or a fairy. We witnessed as the Vampire Authority sought vengeance for the anti-vampire initiatives set in place by the governor, and the formation of symbiotic relationships between humans and vampires to prevent the spread of the fatal Hep V virus.

This final season has exposed viewers to new challenges and shocking realities that has Bon Temps hanging by a thread in its final episode; Sookie weighs a future with and without Bill, while Eric and Pam struggle with their uncomfortable partnership with Mr. Gus. Sam makes a choice, and Andy comes upon an unexpected inheritance.

Throughout the seven seasons, viewers enjoyed performances by Anna Paquin (Sookie Stackhouse), Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton), Sam Trammell (Sam Merlotte), Ryan Kwanten (Jason Stackhouse), Rutina Wesley (Tara Thornton), Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam De Beaufort), Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette Reynolds), Alexander Skarsgard (Eric Northman), Deborah Ann Woll (Jessica Hamby), Chris Bauer (Andy Bellefleur), Carrie Preston (Arlene Fowler), Lauren Bowles (Holly Cleary), Joe Manganiello (Alcide Herveaux), Anna Camp (Sarah Newlin), Jim Parrack (Hoyt Fortenberry), Amelia Rose Blaire (Willa Burrell), Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Nicole Wright), Nathan Parsons (James), Karolina Wydra (Violet), Bailey Noble (Adilyn Bellefleur), Gregg Dainiel (Reverend Daniels) and Adina Porter (Lettie Mae Thornton).

True Blood was created by Alan Ball and is based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris; executive produced by Alan Ball, Brian Buckner, Gregg Fienberg and Angela Robinson; co-executive produced by Howard Deutch; with supervising producer Kate Barnow; producers David Auge and Bruce Dunn; and co-producers Christina Jokanovich, Ronald Cosmo Vecchiarelli and Sunday Stevens.
