HBO’s vampire hit True Blood will be sticking around for at least one more season after being renewed by the cable network on Monday.
True Blood is currently in the middle of its sixth season airing on HBO, and this latest news will keep the vampires roaming the streets of Bon Temps for a little while longer.
New season six showrunner Brian Buckner will remain in charge for the new season as well, which will land on TV screens in the summer of 2014.
The popular series has dropped in ratings a bit over the last two seasons, while also losing some direction since original showrunner and executive producer Alan Ball exited the vampire drama after launching it to critical and commercial success a few years ago.
No official announcements were made regarding the length of season 7, but it’s likely to run around a 10 episode order similar to this year.
Whether or not season 7 will mark the end of True Blood remains to be seen, but given the recent storytelling it’s hard to imagine the fangs of this show will get much sharper unless something drastic happens soon.
