'Game of Thrones' Season 8 Will Likely Mark the End
The end of HBO’s massive hit series Game of Thrones could be in sight as the series creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss have said they are currently feeling only eight seasons.
The two showrunners have been quoted in the past as saying they only envisioned the show lasting seven seasons, but HBO Programming president Michael Lombardo said that is not true.
“Seven seasons and out was never the case,” Michael said at the TCA Summer Tour (via Deadline). “The question is how much beyond (seven seasons) it will go.”
“David and Dan are feeling there are two more years after Season 6, that’s what we’re looking at right now. We hope that they would change their mind, but for that’s how they are feeling now,” he continued.
