True Blood Season 7 to premiere in the UK in July

SEASON7NEWS2HBO recently announced the premiere date for the the last season, True Blood Season 7 in the US as June 22.  Now, FOX UK has decided to change their own plans for the vampire drama.

Instead of launching the final season in its usual Autumn slot, the broadcaster has announced that they will debut the series’ swan song in July, mere weeks behind the US broadcast on HBO. This is the latest such move on the part of FOX UK to premiere high-profile imports as close to US transmission as possible, understood to be part of an attempt to limit piracy as much as is possible. The channel did the same thing with AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead, debuting it less than 24 hours behind the US.

I’d say this is a smart move and we sure will be a very popular one for the UK audience.  No exact day in July has yet been announced that we can find, but as soon as we do, we’ll be sure to report it here.

  1. I’m confused, why are all of you upset about this. This is a good thing; means the UK can share with us while the show is airing. What am I missing?

  2. Perhaps the sadness is because this is the show’s final season.  We all feel that way.  But I’m with ASM here … it means the UK TB fans can discuss the show with us in the States while the episodes are airing.  That has to be a good thing.

  3. Why are they ending a top rated show?? I could write a whole lot more. U have the new infected vamps. Crazy blonde vampire killer. Bill traveling trying to make peace. Eric needing some serious help and many more things not counting what could be done with Alcide…grrr

  4. I’m super sad, all my favorite shows are coming to an end. Don’t know what I’m going to do without my True Blood!! :-(

  5. So stupid ending a show that’s got so many fans who want it to continue there’s so much more they could explore
