"True Blood" is an HBO horror series that first hit the small screen in September 2008. The show ran for seven seasons and a total of 80 episodes with the last episode airing on August 24, 2014. No worries if you missed the show, though, it lives on in its entirety on several platforms. 

"True Blood" was created by Alan Ball, the creative genius behind sister HBO show "Six Feet Under" and movie hits such as "American Beauty" and "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks." The series was based on the book "The Southern Vampire Mysteries," by Charlaine Harries, which is a series of books that are also often called "The Sookie Stackhouse" novels. Like many series, the show was a critical success, then slid in the ratings a bit as the show was winding down.

"True Blood" starred former child star Anna Paquin as Sookie Stackhouse. Paquin began her career when she was only nine years old. "True Blood" also stars Stephen Moyer, Paquin's real-life husband, and Alexander Skarsgard.
