Though there's still quite a bit of time between 'True Blood's seventh season premiere and now, HBO is doing its best to dish out as many teasers as it can before the big day. So if recent video promos just aren't enough to quench your appetite for 'TB' goodness, there are now official photos available to help give fans a closer look at the show's final season.
Capturing some of our most beloved characters, Truebies are treated to images of Alcide (Joe Manganiello), Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll), Tara (Rutina Wesley), Sookie (Anna Paquin), Sam (Sam Trammell), Bill (Stephen Moyer), Jason (Ryan Kwanten), Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), and Andy (Chris Bauer).

Anyone else a little nervous about a particularly attractive male vamp missing from this awesome lineup? We're, of course, referring to Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård), who was dealt a rather fiery hand during last year's season finale. And while we're fairly confident that the hunky Swede didn't actually meet the "True Death," it still would've been reassuring to see his face among this crowd.
Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten) is also MIA, so perhaps they're too busy hanging out to be bothered. Also, Alcide WHY are you wearing a shirt?
As a reminder, Season 6 ended with a six-month time jump into Bon Temps' future, which set the scene for a few interesting changes. For one, Sookie and Alcide are dating, Bill wrote a book, Sam is the mayor, and Arlene is running Merlotte's, which is now called Bellefleur’s.

But most importantly, humans are being recruited to pair up with vampires, who will offer their designated human protection from Hep V-infected vamps in exchange for allowing themselves to be fed on. Sounds fair, right? The only problem is, last we saw, a gang of infected, 'Walking Dead'-looking vamps were just about to advance on an unsuspecting crowd at Merlotte's Bellefleur's. And we doubt they're just stopping by for a burger and fries.
In other words, chaos is about to ensue, folks. Prepare for a bloodbath. Check out the Season 7 photos, shown both above and below, and get pumped for the series' final showdown.
'True Blood' Season 7 premieres Sunday, June 22 at 9/8c on HBO.
