The ten-episode Season 7 will be “True Blood’s” last, and series star Stephen Moyer recently chatted with TVLine about what’s ahead for fans, if Bill and Sookie are the endgame, how he feels about the show ending, and more.
We have the highlights of Moyer’s interview below; be sure to hit the link at the bottom of the page for the whole thing.
What does Moyer think about the timing of the ending?
“I think they made the right call to say, ‘Let’s finish it on a massive run of 10 episodes,’” adding that HBO considered extending the series through an eighth season. “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.”
Is the plan for the final season to focus on the Bill-Sookie-Alcide triangle?
“I know nothing. I’m directing the first episode… and I haven’t [even] seen [the script]. We shoot [‘The Sound of Music Live’] on the fifth of December, and I start prep on ‘True Blood’ on the ninth.”
Does he think Bill and Sookie are the endgame?
“I don’t know whether they can be, given everything that’s happened between them. What Bill did was open up something inside her that she had never had before. He was the key to a new world for her. And maybe that’s all he was supposed to be — a window into that world. I don’t think that there is a right or wrong answer. I think a bunch of people would be happy if that was the story and a bunch of people would be pissed off if that was the story. I don’t read that s–t, so I don’t care, ultimately. All I want to do is do the show and have fun doing it.”
How does he feel about this chapter of his life coming to an end?
“Sad… it’s a f—ing family. That word is bandied about a little bit too much, but it really does feel like [a family]. I’m going to be very excited about what’s to come [career-wise] but slightly bereft that it’s all going to be done.”
The seventh season of “True Blood” will launch in summer 2014. The end of Season 6 jumped ahead six months, and Season 7 will serve as a bit of a reset for the series with the theme of “for every vampire, a human; for every human, a vampire.” It once again examines the relationships between humans and vampires, and by putting all the characters essentially into one story, now it’s Bon Temps vs. the world!
