DESCRIPTION: (from HBO's press release, May 2014) At the conclusion of season six of TRUE BLOOD, Sookie was forced to take a hard look at her future. Bill discovered that salvation comes at a price. And Eric's ultimate fate remained a mystery. Meanwhile, the town of Bon Temps braced itself for a new crisis that would threaten humans and vampires alike. TRUE BLOOD returns for its ten-episode, seventh and final season SUNDAY, JUNE 22 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, followed by other new episodes on subsequent Sundays at the same time. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, the series 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, and vampires Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård). Created by Alan Ball, the show is based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
