This is the beginning of the end.
We knew it was coming but many True Blood fans were still awaiting that final date when the show would meet the true death. Today we have it for you and it’s happening around the same time it does every year: June.
TRUE BLOOD begins its ten-episode, seventh and final season SUNDAY, JUNE 22 at 9:00 p.m. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, the series takes place in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, after vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. The series follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård). Alan Ball created the show, which is based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
We expect the above teaser from True Blood season seven to air with Game of Thrones this weekend but we’ll have to wait to find out for sure. Will the ending match that of the books? Find out soon enough.
Mark your calendars for June 22nd!
Update: Here are the episode descriptions for the first two installments:

A trio of hostages taken in the Bellefleur’s attack looks to a familiar face as a possible liberator from the H-vamps.

Spurned by Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), a desperate Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) turns to Willa (Amelia Rose Blaire) to channel her family past. Vince whips his fellow vigilantes into a dangerous frenzy.
