The mega-popular HBO television series “Game of Thrones” will end after season 8. This was revealed by HBO’s programming president Casey Bloys confirmed to Entertainment Weekly on Friday.
“I would take 10 more seasons.” Boys said “But we take their lead on what they think they can do the best version of the show.” The writers have a specific plan of the number of shows that they want to produce.
It was previously announced that the series would have two more seasons of just 13 episodes total, but it was never actually confirmed that the network would go along with showrunners’ David Benioff and Dan Weiss’ desire to end after Season 8.
As far as a possible spinoff?: “We’ve talked about it, it’s something I’m not opposed to, but of course it has to make sense creatively,” Bloys told EW.
“Game of Thrones” is set to return for its seventh season in April.
