HBO has confirmed that award-winning television series, Game of Thrones will end with the eighth season. HBO programming president, Casey Bloys made the announcement yesterday at the Television Critics Association‘s summer press tour.
He said, “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. 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.”
The show’s recently concluded sixth season hit an all-time high of 25 million viewers and has been nominated for several upcoming awards.
