Looks like Sookie (Anna Paquin) only has ten more episodes to sort herself out. Will she end with Bill, Eric, Alcide or someone else. According to showrunner Brian Buckner, Season 7 will be a love triangle between Bill, Alcide and Sookie, leaving Eric out in the cold… so to speak. If you saw the Season 6 finale, you know exactly what I mean.
“‘True Blood’ has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” HBO president Michael Lombardo says 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.”
“I feel enormously proud to have been a part of the ‘True Blood’ family since the very beginning,” Buckner says in a press release. “I guarantee that there’s not a more talented or harder-working cast and crew out there, and I’d like to extend a personal heartfelt thanks to them for their dedication and tenacity over the years, especially this past year, as I stepped into a larger role.”
He adds, “Thank you also to HBO for their unwavering support and of course to Alan Ball, whose genius enabled all of us to share in this incredible journey. Finally, a huge thank you to the most passionate fans in television. As we take a final walk through Bon Temps together, we will do our very best to bring Sookie’s story to a close with heart, imagination and, of course, fun.”
