The series’ sixth season bowed June 26, with Brian Buckner as the showrunner. The seventh year will return next summer.

“True Blood remains a signature show for HBO, and a true phenomenon with our viewers,” said HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo. “Thanks to Brian Buckner and his talented team, the show continues to be a thrill ride like nothing else on TV.”

HBO says the drama is “exceeding ten million viewers per episode.”
