Yesterday, it was announced by HBO that True Blood will indeed come to a conclusion after the show’s upcoming seventh season, the just concluded season six,  saw a dip in the ratings!  The HBO favorite will conclude with an 10-episode, seventh season beginning in the summer 2014 and it will be its last.

True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” HBO program chief Michael Lombardo said in a statement accompanying the announcement.  Executive producer “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.”

“From the moment I read Charlaine’s books, I thought there was the potential for something really special,” Ball said in a statement. “Then our amazing writers, cast and crew brought her world to life in a way that exceeded my wildest expectations.”   Brian Buckner took over day-to-day oversight of the show from Ball in the sixth season and will retain that role for the final season.

What do you think of the news of the cancellation of True Blood after season 7?  Is it time for the vamps and werewolves to be put to rest?  Let us know your thoughts!

Once a great show, limps to the end. I thought the 1st two seasons were nothing short of perfection! The show went astray when they started introducing new groups every season(werewolves, fayes, witches, were-panthers).

The show should have focused around the social conflicts of human and vampires getting along in this small southern town. They went off the rails, now everyone has powers on that show, with the exception of Jason. I think I watched the first 3 episodes this season and gave up, I’ll probably watch the rest of the season later on.. it went from must-see at 9pm every sunday to ‘it can wait.’

The biggest sin was the wussifying of Eric, who was just the most evil and unpredictable person there was.. he did what he wanted, now that he has a conscious and thinks about EVERYTHING he does and how it will effect Sookie. Like Sampson, Eric cutting his hair drained his powers to wussy proportions.

I could go on and on what’s wrong with that show.. so sad how it was ruined, but it’s probably better off gone.

IF you even read any of the books, all of those characters were in the books. Were’s, witches, were pathers, faries all of them. What happened in my opinion was Alan Ball took the show so far off track from the books he totally ruined it.

I caught up with this show around seasons 4 and 5. Personally, I love it. I hear people say how great it was during the early seasons, so I need to find a way and view these episodes. I bet they’re a treat. I enjoyed this last season (6) immensely, much more than season 5 even. I’m sad that it’s going away after season 7, but it’s never good to overstay one’s welcome.

A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few..

Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service.
