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!
You'll want to be careful of spoilers if you haven't yet watched every season, as the first teaser for 'True Blood' season 7 sees the camera panning through a graveyard of fallen characters, the most recent among them Terry Bellefleur (it still hurts!). The final grave among the stones is that of 'True Blood' itself, lasting from 2008 until its demise later on this year in 2014!
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, 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.
We wouldn't be surprised to see a few more 'True Blood' teasers on the road through 'Game of Thrones' season 4, so take a look at the first above, and tell us what you want to see from the final season premiere on June 22!
