“True Blood,” the hit HBO vampire show, won’t be coming to theaters, said HBO this week.
The seventh and final season will begin this summer, but there were rumors that the show could be transfered to the silver screen.
Actor Stephen Moyer, who plays Bill Compton, hinted about a “True Blood” movie.
“There you have it! If luck holds out then ‘True Blood” may follow in the footsteps of ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘Entourage’ and have its own movie released in the summer of 2016. In the meantime, the final season of True Blood’ has begun filming and will premiere this summer. Don’t forget, you can catch ‘Free Ride’ beginning this weekend On Demand or maybe in your local movie theater. Check your local listings,” he said.
Adding further, he said, “What are you going to do in the summer of 2015? I’m not sure about the summer of 2015, but if things go the way I’m hoping there will be something to watch in the summer of 2016. We’ll have an announcement about that… soonish,” hinting there might be another season or possibly a spinoff.
HBO, however, told BuzzFeed there is “nothing at all to confirm,” adding that they never heard anything about a “True Blood” film.
Season seven of the show has started filming, according to TV Line.
Deborah Ann Woll, who plays Jessica, wrote on Twitter: “The new and FINAL Season of @TrueBloodHBO starts filming TOMORROW!!”
The season premiere is going to be called “Jesuse Gonna Be Here.”
