A few weeks ago HBO gifted us with an early look at the seventh and final season of 'True Blood,' picking up right square in the middle of a Hep-V vampire attack on Bon Temps. Now, the first set of photos from the final season have emerged, and while only a few seem missing for the moment, more curious is what could have Sookie and the gang so concerned in daylight.
There isn't much to be seen in the first round of photos from 'True Blood' season 7, though we'll at least see a bit of the carnage that resulted from season 6 finale "Radioactive," which saw a group of rapidly-multiplying sick vampires descending on Mayor (yes, Mayor) Merlotte's town function. Jessica looks to be continuing her protective duty over the Bellefleurs, but what might have Sookie seeming scared in the light of day?
Elsewhere, we know of ‘True Blood’ season 7 that Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) will indeed return, despite a seemingly fiery end teased in the season 6 finale. Anna Camp’s Sarah Newlin will return, joining ’90210′ alum Riley Smith and Nathan Parson, who's replacing Luke Grimes. Storytelling will shrink to see more direct human-vampire relationships in light of the Hepatitis V threat, while more details and series regular ascensions have been outlined in our guide to ‘True Blood”s final season.
While we wait for the June 22 premiere, feast your eyes on photos of the final season of 'True Blood' below, and tell us what you want to see from our seventh year in Bon Temps!
