First aired: 2014
My thoughts on the earlier seasons can be read at the following: season 1, season 2, season 3, season 4, season 5 & season 6.
Season 7 had been announced as the final season of True Blood. The suggestion was somewhat bittersweet, season 5 and 6 were both stronger as seasons than perhaps some of the predecessor seasons had been. The end of season 6 had seen a man-made variant of the hepatitis virus released, called hep V. Hep V is particularly virulent, not dangerous to humans exposure through blood or a bite will make a human a carrier, but should a vampire contract the illness it will cause veins to become prominent and blackened progressively and will ultimately bring the true death. The virus also weakens them so they need to feed more often, enticing some vampires to become rogue.
