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:

After destroying the vampire internment camp, killing off pretty much all of this season's villains and making sure that Sookie (Anna Paquin) didn't end up as Warlow's (Rob Kazinsky) fae-vampire bride, True Blood jumped ahead six months, effectively wiping the slate clean — which is exactly what showrunner Brian Buckner wanted.

From the onset, Alan Ball's successor hoped to get the show back to its roots, which meant streamlining the tangled web of storylines — namely by ditching the wolf pack and...

Billith has risen!
True Blood returns for its sixth season Sunday (9/8c, HBO), picking up just moments after Bill (Stephen Moyer) drank the blood of original vampire Lilith (Jessica Clark), exploded and then resurrected from a pool of blood. Totally normal, right? But Billith will be the least of everyone's worries this season as Louisiana declares war on vampires. Not to mention, the mysterious Warlow is also coming after Sookie (Anna Paquin). With so much in store, TVGuide.com caught up with the cast of HBO's hit series to get the low down:
Things are about to heat up — literally — in this week's episode of True Blood when Terry (Todd Lowe) and his war buddy Patrick (Scott Foley) go in search of one of their comrades.
Though Patrick and Terry's story has been off to a slow start this year, it will pick up quickly once we learn what happened to their squad in Iraq through flashbacks. This, of course, is the catalyst for their friend Brian Eller (Brian Geraghty) apparently burning down everyone's homes — though he may not actually be to blame. To get the scoop on what's in store, TVGuide.com turned to Foley, who also discusses his upcoming comedy The Goodwin Games and dying far too many times in his career — Grey's Anatomy, Scream 3 and in Felicity's alternate universe, to name a few...
True Blood, Todd Lowe, Chris Bauer
After a whole season of dealing with what can only be described as the creepiest baby on Earth, True Blood's Todd Lowe is really looking forward to acting with the adults again — which he gets to do in this Sunday's episode when Terry finally confronts his cousin Andy (Chris Bauer) about his V addiction.

Yes, between all the witch-on-vampire drama, the werepanther kidnapping and a fantasy threesome, poor Andy has been struggling to get off vampire blood. It will be just as hard for Terry to convince Andy he's a better person without V. "It's emotional and we're going to see...
Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer
True Blood has brought witches, werewolves and vampires to life over the last three seasons, but everything you think you know about the supernatural beings will be upended this season.
"Everything you thought you can count on, you can't," executive producer Alan Ball says. "Vampires are not stronger than certain humans, shapeshifters can do things other than shift and there are ghosts."
Here are 10 things we do know about what's coming up, straight from the cast of True Blood:
Scott Foley will be swinging by Bon Temps for the fourth season of True Blood, TVGuide.com has confirmed.
The actor will appear in one episode of Season 4 and would return if True Blood is renewed for a fifth season, which doesn't seem like something to worry about. The news was first reported by TVLine.
Trying to get True Blood executive producer Alan Ball and the cast of the HBO series to give away anything about the upcoming fourth season is not easy. Oh, but how they love to tease! During Saturday's PaleyFest panel, we heard all about fairies, demon babies, amnesia (poor Eric!) and why — brace yourselves — Sookie and Bill are doomed for the time being.
Bill's not getting back into Sookie's, er, good graces any time soon. It's going to take a long while for her to get past Eric's...
Our three Gilmore girls together on a road trip to North Carolina? Youd think it would be witty Lorelai providing the comic relief, but this time it was typically humorless Emily! Driving the Jag in the slow lane with a parade of cars behind her. Fighting with Lorelai over the power window button, and winning by using the child-proof feature. A stop at a greasy spoon, where Em actually ordered a chardonnay. Thats the clear one, she informed the waitress. And of course, there were show tunes for entertainment. (For those of you who arent theater geeks, that was Oh What a Beautiful Morning from Oklahoma!. Love the irony.) Afterwards came some much-needed bonding. (This was a road trip, after all.) Which did you think was more powerful? That Emily sought out Mia for some old pictures of Lor and Rory? After all, the woman was essentially Lorelais surrogate mother and Emilys nemesis. (Talk about swallowing your priceless pride.) Or wa...
