HBO has put a stake through True Blood.

The network announced today that it will end the sexy series following next summer's seventh season.

Said HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo in a statement:

"True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO. Alan Ball took the books by Charlaine Harris, assembled a brilliant cast led by the magnificent Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie Stackhouse, and crafted a show that has taken its many devoted fans on an unforgettable journey. Alan passed the baton to Brian Buckner, who led our fantastic writers and crew in crafting a spectacular sixth season, and he will lead us through the seventh and final season of this amazing show. Together with its legions of fans, it will be hard to say goodbye to the residents of Bon Temps, but I look forward to what promises to be a fantastic final chapter of this incredible show.”

While ratings have remained strong for the program, they have dropped in recent years; the Season 6 finale was down nearly one million viewers from the Season 5 finale.

React now: Are you glad HBO is ending the show following True Blood Season 7?

Everyone should know that Tara, aka Rutina Wesley, is in a play in New York City! Looks like she already has other plans... http://www.cherrylanetheatre.o...


Stopped watching at season 4, I used to like it a lot, can't stand it now


so sad the true blood end on season 7. I hope Eric didn't die and sookie ends up with him. I don't want her to ends up with bill, alcide or sam. I want sookie and eric.


Really, its just as well. They've strayed so far off the book line that its just crap.


NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! What is with all the cancellation of my favorite shows?


Deuces - *snap*!


What will this mean for who Sookie ends up with? Cause it was originally planned that Season 7 would be a love triangle between Bill Sookie and Alcide but I think plenty will agree that Eric needs to be in the mix here!!!


Bout time. That last season finale was freaking painful to watch.


No, there's plenty left in the series
