Season 7
True Blood

Critics Consensus

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

Tv Season Info

The seventh and final season of the adaptation of Charlaine Harris' Southern vampire novels begins with a vampire-human mixer at Bellefleur's, née Merlotte's, in full swing, but a gruesome attack by a band of Hep V-infected bloodsuckers throws Bon Temps into chaos and prompts a wave of spiteful finger-pointing at one of its most well-known residents—Sookie (Anna Paquin). Meanwhile, Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) tries to convince Andy (Chris Bauer) she's desperate to atone for her past mistakes; Bill (Stephen Moyer) recalls his pre-Civil War life; Jason (Ryan Kwanten) has an awkward reunion with an old friend; Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis) helps Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) resolve her tumultuous relationship with Tara (Rutine Wesley); and Pam (Kristin Bauer Van Straten) searches the globe for Eric (Alexander Skarsgård)—assuming he's still alive!

Critic Reviews for True Blood Season 7

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6)

Although the series could have continued - maybe by introducing zombies or mummies - True Blood had nowhere to go but in circles. It was time to put a stake in it.

Someone should have put a stake in this show years ago.

Headaches will be induced just in trying to unravel the plot mess Bon Temps finds itself in. At least this will be the last headache.

Top Critic

This is a show so stuck in a quagmire of nonsense that it introduced a ridiculous six-month time jump in last season's finale to get out of the nonsense -- and yet when the show picks up here, it becomes clear it is still stuck in a quagmire of nonsense.

In its final season, the series seems to have exhausted its stores of surprises.

Jun 21, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

If there's any show that should go out with a bang it should be this one. Right now its looking like its going to be all whimper.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

So endeth True Blood, with the anemia we'd come to expect in recent years.

Jun 13, 2018 | Full Review…

True Blood is wildly entertaining, what with its peek into the seamy underbelly of vampire politics, the integration of several supernatural species, and small town life/afterlife.

Nov 18, 2014 | Full Review…

I won't go so far as to say that True Blood's limping into its final season, but it's definitely anemic.

Jun 23, 2014 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Moments into True Blood Season 7 Episode 1, fans were hit with the first of what will surely be a multitude of shockers.

Jun 23, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Even though it started with a feeding frenzy and splintered off into a series of independent storylines, "Jesus Gonna Be Here" did a brilliant job of uniting Sookie, Bill, Alcide, Jason, Pam and the rest of Bon Temps in a haze of fearful determination.

Jun 23, 2014 | Rating: 8.6/10 | Full Review…

Let the roaring rampage, with all its accompanying loss of lives and clothing, begin.

Audience Reviews for True Blood: Season 7

  • Apr 05, 2015
    Season 7 brings the story to an end by solving the unresolved plots. It was utterly disappointing, it failed to live up to the standard of the past, even to the point of making crude jokes that didn't make any sense. Goodbye True Blood, it was nice watching you.

    The acting and story line of trueblood is off the f****** chain maaaannn
  • Feb 11, 2019
    A seven season supernatural ride in the American landscape, delivered by an awesome cast & crew!! Truly imaginative storyline that takes the Vampire franchise in a new direction- a must see for fans of the genre!!
  • Jun 29, 2017
    While I honestly loved the series the ending was not what I expected concept wise.
  • Jul 18, 2015
    While I love the actors in this series I was very disappointed with how the story progressed in the last few seasons and how it ended. It was a slap in the face to those who loved both the show and the books. We deserved better than this.
  • Jun 06, 2015
    disappointing end to an otherwise amazing series.
  • May 30, 2015
    A mix of a smal amount of storry together with a lot of meaningless stupid time wasting dialogues. That season is very dissapointing.
  • Mar 07, 2015
    I heard this was a great show. I just can't get past the bad Southern accents! Why use Canadians, etc...? The South is full of people with real accents. Tara's accent is ridiculous! It's very distracting.
  • Dec 30, 2014
    All caught up on True Blood now. One of my fav characters died (=/)and I am confused on How Eric is even alive let alone having HEP-V?
  • Sep 20, 2014
    Although the last two seasons weren't that good and the stories told definitely were getting boring, the finale episode cheered me up and made me feel nostalgic for the time spent watching this series.
