HBO Confirms "Game Of Thrones" Will End With Season 8

As someone who still hasn’t seen a single episode of Game of Thrones yetآ—is this bad news, or something that should be celebrated?

The executive also confirmed that yes, the plan is for the yet-to-be announced eighth season of the adaptation of George R.R. Martin's fantasy drama to be its last. "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 said. "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." HBO most recently renewed the drama for a shortened seventh season آ— consisting of seven episodes آ— and producers have noted that they envision a total of 75 episodes of the series as a whole. Through season six, the show has produced 60 episodes.
