HBO has set end date for True Blood, announcing today that the series’ upcoming seventh season next summer will be its last. “True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” said HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo. “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.”

And they promised Immortality......

Ridiculous is not the problem. It got boring. It's a show about hot vampires and other monsters ****ing and killing each other and somehow they made it boring.

One of the most disappointing shows in television history. The original concept was interesting. It was basically the world as we know it, but suddenly vampires really exist. All of the political/social/economic issues faced in a very practical and realistic way. They even had a pretty cool whodunit in the first season that was well done.

However, the more ridiculous monsters/'supes' they brought into the picture, the further away it got from the thing that made it cool in the first place.

Now, the show is just a complete farce. It never took itself too seriously, but it has become a parody of itself. For some reason, I continued to watch even through this past (horrendous) season. It's like I was punishing myself.

should have happened a couple seasons ago when it was still relevant. TV shows should end with a set time frame like breaking bad is rather than drag out when they've clearly run out of ideas

Unfortunately, True Blood clearly ran out of good ideas after two seasons.

yeah I think i stopped watching after the 4th season but I remember the last season I watched was a bit of a struggle to sit through. Same things happened with dexter which sucks but at some point I'll probably soldier through as I've heard it improved a bit in the last season.

This, exactly this. The original idea was actually solid. But as soon as they mentioned fairies I rolled my eyes. Werewolves and shape-shifters were also pretty ridiculous.

American Horror Story is far better. It might lack the social commentary, but at least the monsters in it are decent.

I stopped watching shortly after the Sherriff (E.B Pharnum from, Deadwood) left. I tried watching the occasional episode, but it was all about that werewolf with a disdain for shirts. Then there was some bs about fairies or w/e and I thought to myself "That's it, i'm out..."

I watch it and think it's ok. The only thing I didn't like is that Sookie was the only one that showed the goods. I wanted to see me some Tara and Jessica.
