It's only a little over two months until the seventh and final season of True Blood airs and while I haven't posted anything related to the show for a while, here's some of the vital bits I've read up on since.
First of all, HBO have released a concept trailer for the seventh season, titled Graveyard. The 35 second trailer shows a couple of graves (Adele, Jesus, Luna, Terry to name a few) before showing one for True Blood: 2008-2014. It's a dark, suitably creepy and atmospheric trailer and hopefully one of many concept trailers/clip trailers we should be expected over the next few weeks before the show's return in late June.
In terms of casting though - it's been revealed that Luke Grimes has left the show as sensitive vampire, James and has been replaced by General Hospital actor, Nathan Parsons, who will be a regular for the final season along with Amelia Rose Blaire (Willa), Karolina Wydra (Violet) and Tara Buck (Ginger). It's a shame we lost Grimes as James but I'm sure that Parsons will be fine in the role as James.
Meanwhile Riley Smith (90210) will have a recurring role in the season as a vampire named Keith, who'll be a love interest for Arlene as well as a drummer in James's band. I've been also reading up and there also seems to be a baddie in Mr. Gus, who according to sources is a Japan native who has fully embraced the "everything's bigger in Texas" way of living and then there are those zombie vampires who will play a role in the final run. As for Sookie/Bill/Eric/Alcide, we'll just have to see how that one plays out, won't we?
