LOS ANGELES, Sept. 3 (UPI) -- HBO says the upcoming seventh season of "True Blood" will be the U.S. vampire drama's last.

"'True Blood' has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO," HBO President Michael Lombardo said in a statement Tuesday.

"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. Alan passed the baton to [show-runner] Brian Buckner, who led our fantastic writers and crew in crafting a spectacular sixth season, and he will lead us through the seventh and final season of this amazing show. 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," the statement said.

The 10 episode final season is to air next summer.
