The vampire/werewolf/fairy/shapeshifter madness will continue for another year -- HBO renewed supernatural soap opera "True Blood" for a seventh season this afternoon. Series creator Alan Ball ("Six Feet Under") left the show at the end of last season, so executive producer Brian Buckner, who took over heading up the series in his place, will continue as showrunner. The new season will air in the summer of 2014.

"'True Blood' remains a signature show for HBO, and a true phenomenon with our viewers," said HBO's Michael Lombardo in the announcement. "Thanks to Brian Buckner and his talented team, the show continues to be a thrill ride like nothing else on TV."

Anna Paquin stars a psychic waitress Sookie Stackhouse in the series, alongside Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgård as the vampires Bill Compton and Eric Northman. The drama is based on a series of novels by Charlaine Harris and is, according to HBO, exceeding ten million viewers per episode.
