‘True Blood’ Final Season Spoilers: Vigilantes, Flashbacks and Morocco?
The recent press rounds of NBC's forthcoming 'The Sound of Music' have seen Stephen Moyer peppered with all manner of 'True Blood' season 7 questions, though shooting of the premiere won't begin until January. That said, the first casting sheets for 'True Blood''s final season have emerged, giving us a clue where the H-vamp war will take us next summer!
For as much as we expected season 7 to have a smaller feel than its predecessor, that won't stop the HBO vampire drama from heading international, as new casting sheets for premiere episode "Jesus Gonna Be Here" (via The Vault) have revealed settings as far away as Morocco. We'll also see a few flashbacks for both Sookie and Bill, while in the present, H-vamps have continued raining havoc on Bon Temps, leading to the rise of at least one vigilante vampire hunter group. See for yourself:

Elsewhere, we know of ‘True Blood’ season 7 that Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgard) will indeed return, despite a seemingly fiery end teased in the season 6 finale. Storytelling will shrink to see more direct human-vampire relationships in light of the Hepatitis V threat, while more details and series regular ascensions have been outlined in our guide to ‘True Blood”s final season.
