True Blood: Season 7
Critics Consensus: Despite the promise of an appropriately shocking series finale, True Blood is mostly content to limp along on familiar plot points.

2014, HBO, 10 episodes

True Blood: Season 6
Critics Consensus: A major letdown coming off the end of season five, True Blood seems to be running out of steam and isn't aging as elegantly as its eternal vampires.

2013, HBO, 12 episodes

True Blood: Season 5
Critics Consensus: Its sheen may have worn off a bit, but True Blood's fifth season piles on the kooky storylines while maintaining its cheeky brand of Southern Gothic drama.

2012, HBO, 14 episodes

True Blood: Season 4
Critics Consensus: Thanks to a reliable returning cast, some fresh new faces, and sharp direction, True Blood still manages a deft blend of sexy melodrama, satire, campy fun, and horror.

2011, HBO, 15 episodes

Critics Consensus: True Blood seems to fully understand its appeal, and its third season provides plenty of graphic thrills, steamy romance, and biting satire for its fans.

2010, HBO, 15 episodes

True Blood: Season 2
Critics Consensus: True Blood's second season is still mostly content with delivering pulpy escapism. but it's well acted, addictive, and packs a stronger and more focused punch than the first.

2009, HBO, 15 episodes

True Blood: Season 1
Critics Consensus: It's unabashedly soapy and it occasionally wavers in its social commentary, but True Blood is a gory, sexy genre romp with a strong supporting cast.

2008, HBO, 13 episodes
