True Blood Season 7: New Photos Reveal Deadly Drama in Bon Temps -- But Where's Eric?

Fairy circuses and god complexes are so last season. New photos from True Blood‘s upcoming seventh (and final) outing reveal a more Bon Temps-centric storyline, though there’s one key character missing from the festivities at home.

We’re talking, of course, about Eric Northman, one of the only main characters not featured in this batch of stills. Though TVLine already confirmed Alexander Skarsgard‘s Nordic vamp will appear in Season 7, it’s still anyone’s guess how he’ll make his triumphant return.

True Blood‘s final season premieres Sunday, June 22, at 9/8c on HBO.

    I think there are no pictures of Eric because he’s an infected vamp zombie

    • KevyB says:

      More like he’s going to be spending several episodes recovering in Sweden from a major sunburn.

  2. alistaircrane says:

    True Blood is ending too soon. It should have gone on for at least 10 seasons.

    • I am saddened to see it end. I do not know what their deal was when they bought the rights to air the story but they would of had to change up the story line to keep it going. How much can you watch men drool over Sookie?

  3. Kellen says:

    Umm, TWO key characters are missing. Where’s Pam?!

  4. katrina says:

    gosh I just hope they do the fans justice! I love this show so much, even though it has got a little crazy at some points! Super sad its ending just want everything wrapped up nicely!

  5. christine says:

    Unfortunately I am glad it is going before it gets worse. I am frustrated by the misuse of great potential and source marerial. The cast is great. The producers /writers ruined this show.

    • IMHO says:

      I agree, the cast is great but the writers and producers ruined True Blood.
      When Alan Ball decided to move on and put his time and energy into Banshee ,True Blood really went off the rails.

    • Reality says:

      Considering the only thing True Blood is guilty of is having too many sub-plots at once and pushing main characters to the sidelines for several episodes in the last few seasons, I have to disagree that it’s been “ruined.” All good shows become cluttered and out-there as time goes on, even Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lost and Breaking Bad became a bit hectic later on. But as crazy as it has gotten, True Blood has been able to avoid plot holes, even tying things in from the earlier seasons. There are plenty of shows that actually have been “ruined” like Supernatural, Glee, Grey’s Anatomy, etc. I am glad it is ending while it’s still on top and of high-quality, but I don’t see a drastic decline or it having become ruined.

      It’s just a shame True Blood’s main problem was attracting such a spoiled and insane fanbase.

      • Francine says:

        Why the spoiled and insane comment? I see nothing in these two postings that justify that. They- like me- are frustrated with what they see as bad storytelling in the recent seasons. It’s fine if you still enjoy everything about the show, but others don’t. That doesn’t make them spoiled or insane.

    • Temperance says:

      Dude, you apparently haven’t read the source material. I loved the earlier books as light summer fluff reads, but they get so very poorly done as they go on. I think it was book nine where it was obvious that she had nothing and had a book deadline looming, and she literally cut and pasted parts of the previous books together in nonsensical fashion. It was disjunct, made no sense, and whole bits were almost verbatim copied. Seriously, the last books are dreadful (yet still significantly better than Twilight or that author’s other eye-bleeders). Anything they do on the TV show is awesome in comparison.

      • Cheeky says:

        That is always my thought too. Yes, the show has gotten sloppy in later seasons, but the books later on aren’t anything to hold in high regard either. Harris was phoning it in the longer the series went, evident by the last few books.
        I do still love the cast of this show a lot, they brought the characters to life, it’s just a shame the plots are sloppy or uninteresting

    Alcide needs to take off his shirt.

  7. Red says:

    No longer a redhead?

  8. yurie says:

    Alan Ball needs to create a show like Six Feet Under instead of this…. ugh, show.

  9. eric says:

    Thank goodness this show will end. It should have ended 4 seasons ago

  10. Laura says:

    I hate this crap!!! This is the best series out there. Why are they cancelling it!! I just want to scream!!!!

  11. Betty Bagwell says:

    I hope they show what happens to Eric in the first episode. Fans want to see him ‘alive’ and well. I would like to see him and Sookue together but I don’t see it happening. She would rather be with a psycho fairy-vampire than a man who truly loves her. She didn’t want anything to do with vampires any more but hooked up with Warlow mighty quick.

  12. kimzy says:

    I love to see/watch my old colleague and am happy for his success. Waiting with excitement for season 7.

  13. Meghan Stroer says:

    If u look at imdb they have Eric and Pam the.cast on the first 3 episodes and then not in anymore the rest of the season. I think they will kill them at the beginning of the season…and then the show will be over for me!!

  14. Kassi says:

    Remember Pam went to look for him so he could be saved?

  15. joanne lewis says:

    TB is ending to soon so sad to see it go. Eric better be in it they cant not put him in it cause he is too hot. Im sure he would have buried himself in the snow cause they weaken before they die. So looking forward to 7 cant believe thats it I hope to see sookie wih Bill again xxx
