True Blood: Season 6 - Rotten Tomatoes

True Blood: Season 6 (2013)




Critic Consensus: A major letdown coming off the end of season five, True Blood seems to be running out of steam and isn't aging as elegantly as its eternal vampires.

Tv Season Info

The sixth season of the adaptation of Charlaine Harris' Southern vampire novels opens on a messy reincarnation for Bill (Stephen Moyer), but no one, including Sookie (Anna Paquin), Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) or Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll), knows who or what he is, and they're not anxious to get close enough to find out. Meanwhile, Alcide (Joe Manganiello) takes over as pack master and discovers there are certain perks that come with the job; Andy (Chris Bauer) deals with being a new father; Louisiana governor Truman Burrell (Arliss Howard) declares war on vampires; and the Stackhouses receive a visit from a distant relative, Niall (Rutger Hauer), who arrives to share dire news about Warlow, the vampire who killed their parents?and is now coming after Sookie.

Critic Reviews for True Blood: Season 6

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (10)

While True Blood remains wildly and bloodily inventive -- and will certainly remain a huge HBO hit -- there's still an overwhelming sense that deja-vu-all-over-again has set in.

True Blood: Season 6 is a nonsensical and deliciously high camp return to form for the show.

March 22, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

True Blood returns true to form. [Full Review in Spanish]

September 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Blood is neglecting the potent subtext of vampire myth - forbidden sex and romance - in favor of political allegory. Isn't that what zombies are for?

June 22, 2018 | Full Review…

In general, this season of True Blood was one of the best in recent memory. The last few episodes picked up the pace and gave our characters plenty to do while effectively thinning the herd, and the show is finally fun again.

September 21, 2013 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Given the last several seasons of the show, though, the turnaround was really immense, and has set up a decent final season.

After the events in season 5, humans now decided to fight back against the vampiric threat, how? By putting them into a concentration camp. The premise was silly but it was fun most of the time.
