HBO has long been a thorn in the side of streaming media enthusiasts, only licensing its content to be accessed through HBO GO, unlike the Netflix and Amazon Prime models that have become so commonplace in recent years. Now, the pay-cable network struck a surprising Amazon Prime deal to deliver streams of a variety of shows past and present, but don't expect to start that 'Game of Thrones' marathon just yet.
A few weeks ago 'True Blood' doled out the first bit of new footage from the seventh and final season among its other spring offerings, but now the time has come for a much juicier meal. See Sookie and our other Bon Temps favorites take on legions of sick vampires, one another, and even FEMA in the first full trailer for the final season of 'True Blood' this summer!
Sure, 'Game of Thrones' season 4 got all the attention Sunday night, at least enough for HBO to show off its summer premiere, 'The Leftovers,' with a first trailer, but what about the seventh and final season of HBO's fangbanging hit 'True Blood'? See the Stackhouse future in our first real look at 'True Blood' season 7, buried in HBO's latest spring 2014 trailer!
Mere minutes ago we were elated (however bittersweetly) to learn that HBO's 'True Blood' season 7 will debut the first of 10 final episodes on June 22, and quicker than a vampire, the first taste is already here. Prepare for the end with a walk through the 'True Blood' graveyard, revealing the names of the dead in the first season 7 teaser!
HBO has a tremendous April coming up with the 'Game of Thrones' season 4 premiere, along with 'Veep' and Mike Judge comedy 'Silicon Valley,' but its never too early to look ahead to summer. The seventh and final season of HBO's 'True Blood' has officially sunk teeth into its June premiere date, along with Damon Lindelof's TV return in the rapturous new series 'The Leftovers.'
It's hard to believe we'll be saying a last goodbye to HBO's 'True Blood' this summer, as the hit fang-banging drama ends altogether with a seventh season. Of course, saying goodbye doesn't slow the series' pace down one bet, as we've learned some surprising details of fan-favorite Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp)'s return, as well as a young new vampire love interest for an unlikely character!
A few weeks ago we were surprised to learn that relatively recent 'True Blood' addition Luke Grimes would depart the series in advance of reprising his series regular role as Jessica's vampire paramour, James. Despite the commotion, however, a replacement has been found. 'Bunheads' alum Nathan Parsons will step in for the role of James, but what might have caused Grimes to exit the role?
HBO stands to lose quite a few of its most popular series over the course of 2014, with 'True Blood' airing its seventh and final season in the summer, 'Boardwalk Empire' confirmed to end this fall, and still without an official season 3 renewal for 'The Newsroom,' but one 'True Blood' cast member says we may not have seen the last of the series by its summer finale. Could a movie be in the works down the line?
True Blood' season 6 naturally thinned the herd a bit, moving into a seventh and final run that reset the focus on smaller Bon Temps vampire stories, though it seems the cast has suffered an unexpected loss. Late season 6 arrival Luke Grimes had his suave vampire character James upgraded to series regular for the final year, but will now be recast.
The recent press rounds of NBC's forthcoming 'The Sound of Music' have seen Stephen Moyer peppered with all manner of 'True Blood' season 7 questions, though shooting of the premiere won't begin until January. That said, the first casting sheets for 'True Blood''s final season have emerged, giving us a clue where the H-vamp war will take us next summer!
