Game Of Thrones Season 8 Will Be The Last


Winter is almost over.

HBO as announced there are only two more seasons of Game of Thrones, which will end with Season 8.

Game of Thrones Season 6 recently ended and went out with a literal bang.

On top of that, HBO also previously announced Game Of Thrones Season 7 will be delayed and won't premier until Summer 2017 and will feature only seven episodes. Normally HBO debuts new seasons of Game of Thrones in April with ten episodes. The reason for the Season 7 delay is due to the filmmakers wanting the outdoor scenes to more closely resemble the arrival of winter in the series.

Regarding the end of the Game of Thrones series, HBO programming president Casey Bloys confirmed the news to

“Yes, they have a very specific plan about the number of seasons they want to do,” Bloys said at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Saturday. “Believe me, as the new [programming executive] coming in, if I could get them to do more. I would take 10 more seasons. But we take their lead on what they think they can do the best version of the show.” 

It's also possible that Game of Thrones Season 8 may have a shortened schedule as well, with eight episodes, though it's noted the number of episodes is still being decided upon.

"Game Of Thrones" stars Kit Harington as Jon Snow, Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Sophie Turner as Sansa Stark, Maisie Williams as Arya Stark and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jaime Lannister.
