True Blood ending in 2014

Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer

True Blood is expected to air its last episode in 2014, according to a fresh statement.

The vampire television show stars real-life husband and wife duo Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin as Bill Compton and Sookie Stackhouse.

The offering has been a defining part of TV culture and HBO’s programming president promises the last instalment will be incredible when it airs in 2014.

“True Blood has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” Michael Lombardo said in a statement. "Alan Ball took the books by Charlaine Harris, assembled a brilliant cast led by the magnificent Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie Stackhouse, and crafted a show that has taken its many devoted fans on an unforgettable journey.

“Together with its legions of fans, it will be hard to say goodbye to the residents of Bon Temps, but I look forward to what promises to be a fantastic final chapter of this incredible show."

True Blood also features big name actors including Alexander Skarsgård, Ryan Kwanten and Joe Manganiello.

Creator Alan Ball believes the cast were a huge factor behind its success.

"From the moment I read Charlaine's books, I thought there was potential for something really special," he said. "Then our amazing writers, cast and crew brought her world to life in a way that exceeded my wildest expectations.

“I'm deeply grateful to HBO for being true partners and collaborators, and, of course, to the viewers who chose to spend Sunday nights in Bon Temps with us."

True Blood was responsible for sparking romance as Anna, 31, got together with Stephen, 43, after the show’s pilot in 2007 and they welcomed fraternal twins Charlie and Poppy in September.

Stephen already had 13-year-old son Billy and 11-year-old daughter Lilac from previous relationships.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
