GAME OF THRONES Confirms Season 8 Will Be Its Last

HBO confirms the end plan for GAME OF THRONES and talks about a potential spin-off!

All of the recent rumors about the future of Game of Thrones are slowly being confirmed. First, we learned that Season 7 will be only seven episodes. Next, HBO confirmed that the new season will be coming in the summer due to filming delays. Now, the network is confirming rumors about the show’s end.

At the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour event, HBO programming director Casey Bloys took questions about the end of the series head-on.

“Yes, I think [the showrunners, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff] have a very specific plan about the number of seasons they want to do,” Bloys told the press, according to THR. “If I could get them to do more, I would take 10 seasons but we want to take their lead with what they could do and what the best version of the show is.”

We appreciate the network appreciating the timing and flow of the show rather than trying to stretch it out. But what about a potential spin-off?

“It’s not something I’m opposed to but it has to make sense creatively. I’m not sure the guys can wrap their heads around it when they are about to start production. We’re open to it; the guys aren’t opposed to it but there’s no concrete plans right now,” said Bloys.

Of course, potential spin-off details haven’t been announced because we won’t know who lives, who dies, and how it will all shake out until the very last episode!

Game of Thrones returns for Season 7 in summer 2017.
