The finale of the sixth season of HBO‘s hit series, Game of Thrones showed on Sunday night and its ratings hit an all time high with 8.9 million viewers.
The previous record was held by the season 5 finale, which had 8.1 million viewers. GOT is one of the few series to continue to grow its audience with every season.
Meanwhile, executive producers of Game Of Thrones, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have talked about what to expect from show in 2017, and said the show will end after two more seasons in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“It’s two more seasons we’re talking about. From pretty close to the beginning, we talked about doing this in 70-75 hours, and that’s what we’ll end up with. Call it 73 for now…We’re trying to tell one cohesive story with a beginning, middle and end. As Dan said, we’ve known the end for quite some time and we’re hurtling towards it.
“Those last images from the show that aired last night showed that. Daenerys is finally coming back to Westeros; Jon Snow is king of the North and Cersei is sitting on the Iron Throne. And we know the Night King is up there, waiting for all of them. The pieces are on the board now. Some of the pieces have been removed from the board and we are heading toward the end game.”
