In shocking, but not-so-shocking news, HBO announced today that the upcoming seventh season of True Blood will be its last. Once red-hot, the show dipped in rating during its sixth season. Interestingly enough, the fifth season was the least-exciting creatively. The sixth seemed to recapture a lot of the fun of the original season.

True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,”  said HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo in a statement. “Alan Ball took the books by Charlaine Harris, assembled a brilliant cast led by the magnificent Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie Stackhouse, and crafted a show that has taken its many devoted fans on an unforgettable journey. Alan passed the baton to Brian Buckner, who led our fantastic writers and crew in crafting a spectacular sixth season, and he will lead us through the seventh and final season of this amazing show. Together with its legions of fans, it will be hard to say goodbye to the residents of Bon Temps, but I look forward to what promises to be a fantastic final chapter of this incredible show.”

True Blood‘s 10-episode farewell season will premiere in summer 2014.
