True Blood” fans will get their first fix of the final season in June, the same month that new Rapture series “The Leftovers” will debut on HBO.

“The Leftovers” will have its series premiere June 15, directly following the season four finale of “Game of Thrones.” The show is based on Tom Perrotta’s best-selling novel of the same name, which takes place after a global Rapture of some sort, and focuses on the group of people who are left on Earth. Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston and Liv Tyler star. “Lost’s” Damon Lindelof serves as showrunner.

“True Blood” will start its seventh and final season on June 22. The season of the skein, which takes place in a world where humans and vampires co-exist, will last ten episodes.

Teasers for both premieres will air Sunday during the “Game of Thrones” fourth season opener.
