True Blood returns for its seventh and final season Sunday (9/8c, HBO) and picks up just moments after most of the townspeople of Bon Temps gathered in support of the "One Vampire-One Human" movement that paired people up in exchange for clean blood and protection. But a horde of Hep-V-infected vamps were about to close in and surely cause chaos in the little backwoods parish. Sadly, you shouldn't expect everyone to survive the inevitable clash. It is the final season, after all!
So, what's in store for Sookie & Co. before the HBO fantasy drama meets its true death? TVGuide.com offers up this quick refresher on where we left off and a juicy tease about what to expect in the final season:
Vampires are on the verge of becoming extinct in the final season of True Blood.
In the first trailer for Season 7, Sookie (Anna Paquin) surveys Bon Temps as the vampires start attacking each other. "How can this be happening in this country and in this day of age that our government would leave us for dead?" Sookie says. "Now good folks in this town are turning on each other, acting like animals."

In the final few seconds, Sookie, surrounded by Sam (Sam Trammell), Jason (Ryan Kwanten), Alcide (Joe Manganiello) and Sheriff Andy (Chris Bauer), says, "There's no one left."
He's survived in a world of vampires, witches and werewolves. Surely Ryan Kwanten can handle a pesky reptile! The True Blood heartthrob will lend his voice — his true Aussie voice — to the role of Brewster the Beast Trapper in the "Tick Tock Trap" episode of Disney's hit cartoon series Jake and the Never Land Pirates.
