[TV] HBO Begins Movement Towards “True Blood” Finale


HBO’s “True Blood” has promoted one of its longest-running original players to series regular.

Says Heat Vision, Adina Porter (pictured), who plays Tara’s mother Lettie Mae Thornton, will be a regular part of the vampire drama’s seventh and final season.

The actress had been billed as a special guest star on “True Blood.”

Porter joins previously announced new series regulars Bailey Noble (Adilyn Bellefleur), Amelia Rose Blaire (Willa Burrell), Luke Grimes (James) and Karolina Wydra (Violet).

The final 10-episode season of True Blood returns in 2014.

    While I do like all the campiness of “True Blood”, what I definitely do not appreciate is the fact that now seasons of not just this show, but the majority of shows on TV contain only 10 to 12 episodes. What happened to the regular number of, say, 24? This way, you don’t even blink and it’s over! Good old Supernatural though, they stick to 23 episodes – now that’s what I call a season!

      Darkness, i understand where you’re coming from but personally i like the 10-13 (16 eps in the case of THE WALKING DEAD) ep per season deal that many shows now have. it can (and should) force the show to be more focused with each ep turning out to be important/concise (hopefully). i’m actually more used to shows doing this new shorter format than i am the 22-24 ep deals.

    i’ve been wondering that for yrs. i think their doing this because on bbc they would have tv series that has only 6 episodes. like demons and Jekyll. even the show being human on syfy is like 10 episodes. arrow , supernatural and some others all do 22 to 23 episodes. i’m glad true blood is over with. it was going down hill n really wasn’t making sense anymore

    Made for TV shows like Supernatural and Vampire Diaries are usually about 24 episodes but anything made by HBO, Super channel or the other movie channels are anywhere between 10-16 episodes. I personally like the 10-16 episodes better. I am really sad that True Blood is coming to an end…I know there are a lot of haters out there but have absolutely LOVED every season of True Blood.
