THE VAMPIRES SAY GOODBYE TO HBO’S TRUE BLOOD

HBO Latin America will premiere the seventh and final season of the Emmy® nominated original drama series True Blood on Sunday, June 22nd in the Caribbean, simultaneously with the United States. Since its debut in 2008, True Blood has entertained audiences around the world, bringing fans a mix of romance, suspense, mystery and humor in a world where vampires and humans coexist. During the past six seasons, the fictional town of Bon Temps came to life through the story of waitress and part-faerie, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), and her love triangle with the seductive vampires Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård).

In season six, having (barely) survived an all-out purge by racist humans, the vampires of Bon Temps forged a shaky alliance with their human counterparts, where humans and vampires would pair off in monogamous partnerships to protect humans from rogue vamps infected with the deadly "Hep-V" virus, while providing personal nourishment to uninfected vampires.

The seventh and final season opens where the last season left off, commencing a battle between raging Hep-Vamps and their prey. This sets the stage for a season-long series of hair-raising events for Sookie, Bill, Eric, Jason, Sam, Alcide, Tara and their human/vampire allies and adversaries. Some of the series’ most beloved figures will meet cruel fates, while others will cheat death to forge happily-ever-after relationships, leaving fans surprised but satisfied.
