HBO has renewed the soapy vampire drama series True Blood for a seventh season. The show is currently halfway through its 10-episode sixth season, and while ratings have been slightly down compared to years past, the show remains as nutty (and uneven) as ever. The series went through a bit of a change this year as creator Alan Ball stepped down as showrunner following season five, handing the reins over to new showrunner Mark Hudis—who himself was replaced halfway through production by current showrunner Brian Buckner, who will remain onboard for season seven. Nevertheless, Vampire Bill and the gang will return for another season next summer. To catch up on our recaps of season six thus far, click here.
