Not surprised. I was expecting a 2 year renewal, but this isn't a bad idea.

No bad thing. IMHO, it jumped the shark around the time the werewolves joined. Maybe season 6, which has yet to air over here, sees a return to form but I've found the last few seasons disappointing.

This show is still on? ;)

It's okay. The vampire craze seems to come and go every couple of years!

From what I've heard season 6 is all over the place.

^A shame but on the basis of the last few, that doesn't surprise me. The first couple of seasons, I was hooked and every cliffhanger left me going 'AAAARGGHHH' as I impatiently waited to see what happened next. Now, there are just too many stories and characters, with nothing really gelling.

I'm reading book 8 at the minute and I'm not surprised the series got confused judging from the books. I gave up watching a season or two ago.

I understood that the books and series had diverged some ways quite some time ago. More of a Dexter situation than a Game of Thrones one. I'll probably stick with TB till the end as I'm a completist, but the wife has pretty much given up on it.

Season 6 was definitely their weakest season. Hopefully they can redeem themselves with the final season.

The show stopped being good some time in season two, although I did keep on enjoying it as a kind of guilty pleasure and thought the most recent season was something of a return to form. Still, I'm not too broken up about the cancellation.

Well, it had a pretty good run. It's never disappointed me, since it was simply Grand Guignol from the beginning, but I'm not surprised to see it end.

Was really hoping for a two-year renewal to wrap things up. I'm just not sure if they can do it in ten episodes and not feel rushed.

Well, at least they know beforehand. For me the turning point was about the time Bill became king, since then it was quite hit-and-miss for me, still enjoyed it but they never reached the great first three seasons (which kinda reminds me of Dexter...).

I'd say it's the right time and maybe forcing their hand will result in a somewhat focused conclusion.

I'll miss the lovely Deborah Anne Wohl.
