'True Blood' Renewed! 7 Reasons Why Season 7 Could Be the Best Yet

Hot List 6

eric and pamOkay, Trubies/Truebies/True-bies/Trubees, are you sitting down? Probably that's a stupid question I guess, because who really stands up and reads stuff like this? Although I suppose you could be standing in line at Starbucks right now ... or maybe riding the train at rush hour when all the seats are taken ... or maybe you're trying out that weird "stand at your desk" thing some people seem to think is a good idea ... anyway, what were we talking about? Oh yeah. Guess what about True Blood? The show actually got renewed -- RENEWED! -- for another season! Season 7 of True Blood is a go, you guys!! Are you shocked?? Of course you are; that's why I asked if you were sitting down!! You're shocked because, to be perfectly frank, True Blood season 6 has been pretty rough ... up until super recently, that is. 

In fact, the past couple of episodes have reminded us of that major mojo True Blood had going on way back when we were just getting to know Bon Temps and its crazy soup of supes. Here are 7 reasons why we think season 7 of True Blood might just be its best yet (or at least worth watching). 

1. Storylines seem to be a bit less all over the place. Here's an example: Last season, we had to suffer through that whole Terry battling the fire monster thing ... this season, Terry seems to be on his way out. (Which I don't want to happen, because I LOVE TERRY! Jussayin'.)

2. Warlow is turning out to be a pretty cool character after all. Way hotter/more interesting than the fanged Captain Jack Sparrow we were 'specting.

3. Eric. Effing. Northman.

4. Sookie is getting progressively less annoying, woo-hoo!

5. Speaking of pleasantly surprising characters, Bill/Billith isn't quite as insufferable as we were 'specting either.

6. The "stakes" are higher than ever. Not the through-the-heart kind of stakes -- we're talking about fever pitch emotional plots (Eric and Pam facing off?!). Be still our undead hearts!

7. Alcide still (presumably) has a gym membership. Or whatever. I don't know what he does to keep that six-pack a-packin', but he's still at it, so woo-hoo!

Whaddya think?

Are you looking forward to season 7 of True Blood?

well i was somewhat bored with seasons. i've se less of sookie , and to kill of terry was a mistake , jason's plot line was a little interesting as well as jessica believing she should die for being a vamp who had too much farie blood.. they could have saved all of the new baby faries anyway, shit and what is the only one left story going to be about anyway, i'm sorry, i cant wait till tis one is over and i pray next season is far better.

I hope they kill Tara off next season. I was hoping Northman would go, but I knew that wasn't going to happen. And what the hell did they include this "Willa" character for anyway?? I'll try 'n hang in there...I'm gettin' bored.

Northman to go...! No way. I'm hoping to se more of him. Maybe some Eric/sookie romance if it doesn't work out with warlow (i would love to se sookie wamperized.
Tara is a blast and i like her straight forward personality.

Season 6 has allover bean a little to slow, but it has it moments.. Lets hope for a "killer" season 6 finale.
