Charlaine Harris to End Sookie Stackhouse Series Next May

The beloved Sookie Stackhouse series–the vampire novels behind HBO’s True Blood–will end next year.

Novelist Charlaine Harris made the announcement on Facebook today: “the final Sookie Stackhouse book, Dead Ever After, will be on sale May 2, 2013!” In less than an hour, the post generated more than two thousand “likes” and three hundred comments.

Last year, Harris hinted at the impending end of the series: “I think it’ll be total closure. I don’t go back to things once I’ve finished them. That’s kind of what I do. I don’t want to write Sookie after I get stale.” (Via Jason Pinter)
