HBO has scheduled the June debuts for True Blood and The Leftovers. The tease for True Blood is available below, and you can continue reading for all the official details in the official press release.
True Blood begins its ten-episode, seventh and final season Sunday, June 22 at 9:00 p.m. Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, the series takes place in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, after vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. The series follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people's thoughts, vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård). Alan Ball created the show, which is based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
From Damon Lindelof (Emmy winner for Lost) and acclaimed novelist Tom Perrotta (Academy Award nominee for Little Children), The Leftovers begins its ten-episode season Sunday, June 15 at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT), immediately following the season finale of Game of Thrones. Based on Perrotta's bestselling novel of the same name, the drama series is an original look at The Rapture... because it's not entirely clear The Rapture happened. Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston, Liv Tyler, Charles Carver, Max Carver, Carrie Coon, Ann Dowd, Michael Gaston, Emily Meade, Annie Q, Margaret Qualley, Amanda Warren and Chris Zylka star. Lindelof serves as the series showrunner.
