Probably, this is bad news to all "GOT" fans as "Game of Thrones" will end after Season 8 2018. An HBO representative confirmed.
HBO new programming president Casey Bloys confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that he and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss plan to end the fantasy hit program after its eight Season. Bloys told the publication that if he could get them to do more, he would take 10 more seasons.
"But we take their lead on what they think they can do the best version of the show," Bloys explained.
The showrunners planned to make six episodes in the 8th season, however, Bloys said the total episodes for the 8th season is not yet final. When the HBO programming president was asked if the "GOT" team has considered a spin-off to continue the franchise, he said, they have talked about it and this is something the he's not opposed to, however, "it has to make sense creatively," he said.
Due to the delay of Season 7, which consists seven episodes, and will debut next summer, the executive confirmed that the "GOT" will be taken out of the running for the Emmys next year.
As the end of "GOT" has been confirmed, the "GOT" fans are unstoppable to make theories online. Many fans attended San Diego Comic Con, however, many of them got disappointed because the executive producers, Weiss and Benioff did not reveal any information during the event.
Due to minimal details of upcoming " The Game Of Thrones season 7," the detective instinct of some fans has showed up as they took Twitter to reveal some vital filming information.
A Twitter user named Claire McGowan said she saw Gwendoline Christie and Iain Glen (who portrayed the role of Brienne of Tarth and Jorah Mormont) on the flight she boarded for Belfast. This information has sparked rumors that these actors will have an appearance in Season 7.
