HBO is preparing an auction of memorabilia from a series that has been one of the pay-cable channel’s most popular shows of all time. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the channel will auction off items from “True Blood” as the vampire drama nears its series finale Aug. 24.
HBO is working with auction service Screenbid on the sale, which will run from Aug. 20-25 . The story adds that the “lots will eventually total over 1,500, with about 150 new items added daily, and they come with certificates of authenticity from HBO.
Among the items are Eric’s throne from the nightclub Fangtasia and the contract that binds Sookie to Warlow.
Also up for bidding will be fangs worn onscreen by actors including Stephen Moyer, who plays Bill, and Arlene’s wedding dress.
The series, currently in its seventh and final season, has been one of HBO’s most-watched shows ever, averaging close to 5 million viewers at its peak during seasons three and four.
