Season six of True Blood wrapped up on Sunday with a finale packed with surprises, from the death of Warlow to the sun-frying of a very naked Eric Northman. Then, halfway through the episode, there was a six-month time jump which saw a lot of changes in Bon Temps, including the threat of Hep V-infected mutant vampires and a new relationship between Sookie and Alcide.
True Bloodclosed season six with two major deaths and a time jump, but the events of the finale didn't exactly boost ratings.
HBO's racy vampire drama averaged 4.1 million total viewers Sunday night at 9 p.m., a slight improvement from the penultimate episode but a drop from the season-six premiere in June. (If the 11 p.m. encore is counted, True Blood drew more than 5 million viewers on the night.)

Additionally, Sookie and Warlow's wedding day arrives, but it doesn't go as planned, to say the least.

Well, that was fast.

The footage showed that there's a lot more death and destruction in store for our favorite Bon Temps residents, with many of the vampires locked in that terrifying experimental prison. It looks like Jason (Ryan Kwanten) will also end up in the prison and that Sookie (Anna Paquin) will be struggling with her feelings for Ben/Warlow (Rob Kazinsky).
HBO will continue to take a bite out of audiences.
The premium cable network announced Monday that it has renewed True Blood for a seventh season. The series, which stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard, will return in summer 2014 with Brian Buckner returning as showrunner.
