Airing just before last night’s premiere of the new season of Game of Thrones was the promo teaser for another HBO book series adaptation, True Blood, season six, which debuts on June 16.
The trailer for Game of Thrones used the voice over, “Will it never end?” This one seems to address that question, warning, “…it is the beginning of the end.”
In a sense it is, since this is the first season without show creator Alan Ball at the helm. Not to worry, however, although HBO has made no official announcement, a casting call has gone out for season seven.
There is a definitive end to the book series, however. Charlaine Harris announced that the upcoming 13th title will be the final one, Dead Ever After (Penguin/Ace Hardcover, May 7).
The new HBO series is based on book six in the series, Definitely Dead. The tie-in edition arrives June 4 (Penguin/Ace, mass mkt pbk).
