Is “True Blood” Ending After Season 7?

The last season of “True Blood” royally sucked, and the season before that wasn’t so good either. Hell, when was the last time you considered this show to be truly great?

I’m thinking of the witches, but I know it varies for many. Point is, a lot of us watch the show out of pure habit now. That and to look at Ryan Kwanten.

While that may still garner the show solid ratings, how much longer is the show going to go on? There’s been chatter that after the upcoming season, it might be a wrap. Are you ready for that possible reality?

From TV Line:

A decision about the future of the vampire drama — specifically whether Season 7 will be the show’s last — will likely be decided in the coming weeks, according to showrunner Brian Buckner.

“That conversation is happening, but we don’t have an answer yet,” the EP tells TVLine. “I’m being told that I will know – which doesn’t mean that I will tell everybody. But I will know when the writers resume in the room [next month] whether or not we’re wrapping it up or not.”

At the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour last month, HBO president Michael Lombardo said True Blood will continue as “long as there are stories to tell,” adding that, “no decisions have been made.”

Buckner has also been quoted about his desire to take back the show to its essence and losing a lot of the subpar storylines no one ever really cared about. Should he make that happen, I don’t see HBO allowing this show not to go on, at least for an eighth season.

If anything, now that the show has turned into a soap opera, it can probably keep going for many years to come. Let’s just hope it’s actually still worth watching, though.

    If they’d get back to following the basic story lines of the books it might be worth while again. They never matched the books completely but at least had a basic common plot. Get back to that and it could possibly be a good show again.

      I agree to this post if the show is serious about change basic plots from the book as a guideline is nice.

    If the show is serious about change please get away from the Sookie/Bill/? triangles Sookie should forgive Bill but not forget the things he has done.

    The writers need to to sharpen up. The potholes they never fill, general writing errors (Norah’s age and profession, among other things) and anticlimactic story lines should not be acceptable on an HBO show. And can someone please tell me how keeping Eric and Sookie apart has done anything except make the show almost unwatchable. Their interaction is always a highlight of the show. I have loved True Blood and been a faithful fan, but I can’t watch Sookie forgive Bill again!
