Rejoice, Truebies: True Blood is sinking its teeth in for a seventh season.

HBO announced it will bring back the vampire drama series, which stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard, for a seventh run in summer 2014. Brian Buckner, who took the helm from creator Alan Ball before season six, will return as showrunner.

True Blood, based on the novels by Charlaine Harris, still exceeds 10 million viewers per episode ranks, according to HBO, helping it rank as the cable network’s third most-watched original scripted series, bested only by mobster drama The Sopranos and fantasy thriller Game of Thrones.
