Season 8 of Games of Thrones Will Conclude the Series, confirms HBO
Game of Thrones Season 8 will be the show’s conclusion, officially confirmed by the HBO. Executive producers of the series David Benioff and D.B.Weiss previously told, there would be two more seasons.
“Yes, they have a very specific plan about the number of seasons they want to do,” HBO programming president Casey Bloys said at TCA (via EW). “Believe me, as the new [programming executive] coming in, if I could get them to do more. I would take 10 more seasons. But we take their lead on what they think they can do the best version of the show.”
“We’ve talked about it, it’s something I’m not opposed to, but of course it has to make sense creatively. I’m not sure that the guys could really wrap their heads around it when they’re just about to start production. It’s a pretty intense production, they’re about to start production soon. I’m open to it. The guys weren’t opposed to it, but there’s no concrete plans for it at this point.”
The series is currently preparing to film its seventh season, which will premiere next summer. The executive producers of Game of Thrones are David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield; co-executive producers are Guymon Casady, Vince Gerardis, George R.R. Martin and Bryan Cogman; and producers are Chris Newman, Greg Spence and Lisa McAtackney.
