After seven extraordinary seasons, the award-winning HBO series True Blood will end its successful run on Sunday, August 24. To commemorate this occasion, leading Hollywood collectibles auction site ScreenBid will host an online auction of more than 1,500 props, set decoration items, wardrobe pieces and other memorabilia straight from the set of True Blood. Launching on Wednesday, August 20, the auction will run for five days and close on Monday, August 25, the night after the beloved series airs its final episode.
In this one-time online auction, True Blood‘s dedicated fans will be able to bid for a massive array of items from set, including the following:
- Eric’s throne
- The contract that Warlow makes to “own” Sookie
- Arlene’s wedding gown
- Vampire fangs
- Cartons of True Blood
- Items from the set of Merlotte’s and Fangtasia
- Wardrobe pieces from several major characters from the series
- Signed memorabilia
Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, True Blood takes place in a world where vampires and humans co-exist, after vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. The series follows waitress and part-faerie Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) and vampire Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård). Alan Ball (creator of the Emmy®-winning HBO series Six Feet Under®) created the show, which is executive produced by Brian Buckner and based on the bestselling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.
