‘True Blood’ To End After Seventh Season

At least we’ll have GIFs of naked Alexander Skarsgård to keep us warm (and titillated) at night!

HBO announced today that its fangtastic series “True Blood” will end after the upcoming seventh season.

“From the moment I read Charlaine’s books, I thought there was potential for something really special,” creator Alan Ball said in a statement. “Then our amazing writers, cast and crew brought her world to life in a way that exceeded my wildest expectations. I’m deeply grateful to HBO for being true partners and collaborators, and, of course, to the viewers who chose to spend Sunday nights in Bon Temps with us.”

The final season, which kicks off in the summer of 2014, will consist of 10 episodes. Meaning Jason Stackhouse has only 10 episodes in which to outdo Eric Northman in the nudity department. Your move, Kwanten.
