HBO Renews True Blood for Season 7 Because You're Still Going to Watch It
Fangbangers, fairy-f*ckers, and werewolf love-makers, fantastic news! HBO has renewed
True Blood for a seventh season, quite simply because no matter how insanely ludicrous this show gets, you will still watch it. A giant robot built out of rusty old Volkswagens could land in Bon Temps without explanation and shoot Lafayette into space and people would just be like, "Oh, okay." Season 7 will debut next summer; an episode count was not announced.
True Blood is currently in its sixth season (read Lily's great review of Sunday's episode right here!) full of blood-pool reincarnations, ancient fairies, and frantic humping. It's the first season without creator Alan Ball captaining the ship, but while ratings have dipped since the show's heyday and Game of Thrones has usurped its status of network darling, the ratings haven't dropped nearly far enough for HBO to consider cancellation, and chatter about the show remains strong.
Congratulations to all the True Blood cast members, who are probably all doing lots of sit-ups to celebrate.
