After scientists invented artificial blood, the current world has undergone significant changes. Creatures called vampires reveal themselves to society at this moment. They stated that they can now peacefully coexist with people by eating a surrogate. Sookie Stackhouse, a young waitress from a tiny town in Louisiana, is especially clear about the fact that the world will never be the same – especially after she met the vampire Bill Compton. This meeting gives impetus for the further development of the TV series a little bit crazy plot. Following the vampire, she faced other bloodsuckers, werewolves, fairies, witches, voodoo witches and other wickedness.

“True Blood” is a wonderful postmodern TV show that – based on casual romantic supernatural stories – tells an incredibly compelling story to viewers.
