HBO has announced that True Blood season 7 will premiere on Sunday, June 22. To celebrate today’s news, the first teaser trailer has been released.
The new True Blood season 7 teaser doesn’t include footage from the upcoming episodes. Instead, we are reminded of the many deaths over the show’s history, including the most recent at the end of season 6: Terry Bellefleur’s. As the camera sweeps across a graveyard, we arrive at one final, major grave: True Blood’s own.
The teaser is a reminder that True Blood season 7 is the show’s last outing.
A synopsis noting the final season was shared today by HBO. “True Blood begins its ten-episode, seventh and final season Sunday, June 22 at 9:00 p.m,” it reads. “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, vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård). Alan Ball created the show, which is based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.”
HBO is also using the hashtag #TrueBloodForever to tout the final season. The teaser above will run during this Sunday’s Game of Thrones season 4 premiere.
With the show only two months away, we hope to see the first stills and clips soon!
