We complain a lot about how there are no lesbians on TV, but one show which has been constant with LGBT appeal is True Blood, who appear to have lesbians falling out of its freaking ears. We’ve had Pam De Beaufort (Kristin Bauer van Straten), Tara Thornton (Rutina Wesley), Nan Flanagan (Jessica Tuck), Naomiaka Tara’s first GF (Vedette Lim), and Marnie Stonebrook (Fiona Shaw) – not a lesbian in the show but she is in real life. We even had Papi (Janina Gavankar) from The L Word playing a shapshifter.
But sadly Trueblood (like all good shows) is coming to an end… Season 7 has been announced as the last season for HBO’s hit.
A trailer for the final season was recently released. The extended look at season seven focuses on Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) facing judgment for the doomed fate of Bon Temps.
Bill Compton actor Stephen Moyer recently said that he agrees with the decision to end True Blood with its seventh season.
“I think they made the right call to say, ‘Let’s finish it on a massive run of 10 episodes’. The star went on to say: “It was either going to be one season or two seasons… and I would’ve definitely [stayed] on. But it’s very difficult with a show like ours to keep finding a Big Bad and creating all the drama around it.”
True Blood returns on Sunday, June 22 on HBO in the US and on Monday, July 7 on Fox in the UK.
