As we now conclude the shortened Season Six of TRUE BLOOD with all its burning questions we can now focus already on Season Seven. Executive Producer Brian Buckner had this to say about it.
“I feel like this show is ultimately about the relationship between vampires and humans and it’s about this town. I want to bring it in a little bit. I feel like at times we’ve hurt ourselves. My goal is to get all these people living under the umbrella of one story and one threat … and make it about this small town we’ve all come to know and love.”
That really makes sense I think. After all what got us involved in the show, unless you were interested in the Harris’ novels first, was the story of all the crazy people of Bon Temps Louisiana in that first season. As the seasons went on more and more characters were added with that the story got further away from its beginnings. That sentiment has been quite evident from the TRUE BLOOD fan base and the show-runners are listening.
Now let’s hope this doesn’t mean the arrival of another Maenad! It will be interesting to see how the cliff-hanger of this season will play out and how the show will ‘settle town’ its storytelling without losing the action we have come to expect from TRUE BLOOD. Now that all these werewolves, shape-shifters and Fae have been introduced we can’t just ignore them next season. Have they already started trimming down characters and plotlines with the way Season Six has ended?
We have plenty of time to discuss the ramifications of all this and you can be sure that HBOWatch will be attentive to any TRUE BLOOD news trickles in. We have already been glamoured by the spell of Season Seven coming in 2014.
