True Blood” fans, it’s nearly time to hang up your fangs.

After six seasons of vampires, werewolves and fairies, oh my, the hit HBO series is going out on top after one final season.

According to the official press release, the show’s ten-episode seventh season will premiere next summer.

“True Blood,” which stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, Ryan Kwanten, Nelsan Ellis and Kristin Bauer, underwent something of a creative overhaul this season, beginning when Brian Buckner took over for creator Alan Ball.

The series, based on Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse novels, began to tie up loose ends, bringing all of the show’s core characters back to Bon Temps just in time for the final series.

While “Truebies” know that “waiting sucks,” one thing that is no longer in doubt is the fate of one of the show’s main characters.

Spoiler Alert: Buckner confirmed to TVLine after the show’s controversial season finale that Eric Northman will return for season 7, saying, “I can tell you that Alexander Skarsgard is going to be a part of the next season of ‘True Blood.’ He will be a series regular.’

Though nothing has been confirmed, if tradition holds, the final season of “True Blood” will hit HBO next June.
