True Blood Season 7: Is Eric a Goner?

by at . Comments

True Blood Season 7 may not air until the summer of 2013, but showrunner Brian Buckner has already given fans an answer to the most pressing question on their minds.

"I can tell you that Alexander Skarsgard is going to be a part of the next season of True Blood. He will be a series regular," the executive producer tells TV Line in a new interview.

Eric Northman of course, was last seen going full frontal on a mountaintop in Sweden - and also going up in flames once his special faerie powers were extinguished on the True Blood Season 6 finale.

But while Buckner would not go into the details of just how Eric survives this extreme hot flash, he did hint that Pam will play a key role in rescuing her Maker.

As for why Alcide and Sookie are together? The reasoning behind the six-month time jump? The goal for Bill on Season 7? Read Buckner's full Q&A with Michael Ausiello and then vote:

can wait for season 7...


summer 2014....not 2013.........also, this was a lackluster season. Yawn.


to be honest the finaly could have been better and if eric is gone I think this show might loose quite a few viewers, to me eric is the best in the series I love eric northman please came back !!!


My best friend's wife is making $86 just working for 4-5 hours daily on their computer at home. She has been laid off for five months but last month her income was $21869 just working on the internet . Know what to do.

Second to last episode was way better then the actual finale in my opinion. Just had that pesky Warlow end to tie up really.


To me, with Eric gone and off on his own story going forward, I think it’s a pretty obvious triangle we’re setting up between Bill and Sookie and Alcide. (Quote taken from the interview) ANOTHER triangle? And AGAIN with Bill/Sookie? They can't be serious, can they?


Can we PLEASE get another 8 shows during the winter - next year is too long to wait!!!


If I'm just waiting for summer of 2013, I can't wai... Wait. How many episodes are you planning on releasing? Summer ends in like two weeks?! Boo.


Summer 2013? Do you mean season 7 summer 2014?


great film, cant wait :)

True Blood Quotes

I don't know what it is about me that makes people think I want to hear their problems. Maybe I smile too much. Maybe I wear too much pink. But please remember I can rip your throat out if I need to. And also know that I am not a hooker. That was a long, long time ago


I'm not a monster, I'm a buddhist!
