HBO Picks Up True Blood for a Seventh Season

Last night's True Blood might've been titled "Fuck the Pain Away," but it seems like there is plenty more fucking and pain in store for the show. Less than halfway through its sixth season, HBO has already announced that True Blood has been picked up for a seventh season. The new season will air the summer of 2014. (True Blood has been a summer show since its second season.) Though the ratings might be slightly down from last season, the show still does well, averaging about 10 million across all airings. Congrats, True Blooders — have a cup of blood on us.
