If you’re a True Blood fan, you probably already know that the final season will be airing this summer. HBO has released a few images but this poster where Sookie Stackhouse looks like she’s crying blood brings some true finality to it all. We all know vampires cry bloody tears. So will it end with Sookie as a vampire?
I’ve read the books and I have to say that the series started off strong but it got further and further from the storyline and it became hard to watch. It’s one thing to make minor revisions to make it more television-friendly but it felt like they started making this over-the-top just for the sake of nudity and shock value on a network known for both.
The adaptation of George RR Martin’s Game of Thrones books is spectacular and, maybe, if the Sookie Stackhouse novels had been treated with a little more respect, this wouldn’t be happening. Still, seven seasons is a nice run (even though the last few seasons were pretty terrible).
The final season will premiere on Sunday, June 22, 2014 at 9:00 p.m.
