HELL NO! We hate to admit it, but NO WAY are we ready to let Bon Temps (and Fangtasia) go after one more season. Two more? Could probably do that, two more and then a two-part season 9 to finish up. Call us greedy. But let’s see, Breaking Bad has a mere six more episodes (24 hours from now, only 5) before it’s gone forever–cross your fingers AND toes for that Saul Goodman spinoff. . Mad Men‘s next season will be its last (the 70’s style that started creeping into S6 was getting unsettling for some reason, but two more seasons? Please? First half of 1969 for S7, second and maybe early 1970 for S8?) We got two more seasons left of Sons of Anarchy, which seems about right, but that’s another one to say goodbye to. Who knows when HBO could yank Boardwalk Empire away?
OK, this is getting depressing. If Dexter can be dragged out for 8 seasons, the much more entertaining-to-watch and less-predictable True Blood can, by God. Dexter doesn’t have Eric and Pam on it, either (though I doubt even a weird crossover could save Dexter now). On the bright side, Ryan Murphy has said as long as FX will have American Horror Story, he has enough plans and stories to tell for ten seasons! Since every season (or “volume”) has a new theme and new characters (but most of the same beloved cast members), the slate’s wiped clean–even though some of us die-hard fans have trouble letting go of the characters and story. Anyway, take the True Blood poll in this piece and see how neck-and-neck the voting is. Now THAT is a polarizing season finale… if you’ve been reading our True Blood
rants pieces regarding that lazy-ass S6 finale, you know who we blame for the dropping ratings.
