The new season looks particularly violent. And that's saying something with this show.
Straight in the middle of TV’s upfront season True Blood has just released its season 7 trailer. Currently, the popular opinion seems to be that the guilty pleasure series is well past its prime by now and consequently, Sookie Stackhouse’s adventures are getting more outrageous by the episode. Now, the final season is gearing up to tie all the loose ends left.
Watch the first trailer for season 7 below.
The trailer starts with a flashback to the beginning of it all. “I’ve lived in Bon Temps my whole life,” Anna Paquin says via voice-over. “But we can’t go back to the way things were.”
Then the trailer unleashes chaos. And by “chaos” we mean a rapid montage of scenes from the coming season, which give away little of the story. The soundtrack of The Wright Brothers’ “Blood on my Name” amplifies the drama and action.
One way or another, the end is nigh for the residents of Bon Temps.
It looks like Sookie and co. will have to face off with the gang of infected vampires we saw gathering around Bellefleur’s in the last season finale and then deal with the rest of the crazed vamps, running around the country. Tara and her mom have some issues to work out, as does Sookie with practically everyone else on the show.
The seventh and final season of True Blood premieres on HBO on June 22.
Season seven's lineup looks nothing like the one the show started with.
