'True Blood' Renewed For Season Seven

True Blood cast

If you're a fan of blood, sex, or bloody sex, you now have a reason to celebrate. Cable giant HBO has just renewed veteran vampire drama 'True Blood' for a seventh season. Currently five episodes into its sixth run, 'True Blood' has been biting necks and cashing checks since 2008, and shows no signs of stopping any time soon.

In fact, the success of the Alan Ball-created series has in most ways eclipsed that of the Charlaine Harris novels that inspired it. 'True Blood' managed to reintroduce the world to the beautiful Anna Paquin, and make stars out of Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard. The show also paved the way for the success of CW drama 'The Vampire Diaries.'

True Blood stars

Famous for its torrid love triangles, gruesome violence, and tawdry sex scenes, 'True Blood' isn't your parents' vampire show. Bon Temps is no Collinwood, and Bill Compton is far from Barnabas Collins.

'True Blood' will return for a seventh season of ten episodes in summer 2014. Current showrunner Brian Bruckner (who took over for creator Ball this year) will return to lead the creative side. While 'True Blood' has seen a drop-off in critical praise the last few years, fan support seems to be nearly as strong as it's ever been. Hopefully the human/vampire war that appears to be brewing manages to end season six on a high note.

Are you excited to sink your teeth into more 'True Blood?'

I had erroneously heard this was the last season and am so positively thrilled to find out it's not over. Was almost in mourning! Freakin' love this show!

Well it must be really popular as there were a whole 2 comments saying they loved the show. Don't count mine though I was just curious to see why it was being done for a 7th time as I stopped watching once it went weird in season 3 or 4. The first 2 or 3 seasons were quite good, but as usual the writers run out of steam and it just plonks along slowly dying and like an old faithful Dog that the owner wants to try and keep alive instead of doing the right thing and putting it to sleep. I do like Anna Paquin though and was the only reason I kept watching as long as I did.
