True Blood will return earlier this year in the UK, it has been confirmed.
The final season of the HBO vampire series has moved from its usual autumn slot, and will now air in July on FOX, just a couple of weeks after it first airs in the US.
Full broadcast dates have yet to be announced for FOX, but it returns on Sunday, June 22 at 9/8c on HBO.
Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer will return for True Blood‘s conclusion, alongside 90210 star Riley Smith, who has been cast as a ‘rock ‘n’ roll vampire’ named Keith.
HBO recently released a teaser trailer for the final season, showing a graveyard of deceased characters including Sookie’s father Corbett Stackhouse (Jeffrey Brown) and war veteran Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe), before revealing a tombstone for the series itself.
