No matter how much we want it to, the wonder that is “The Game of Thrones” has got to end sometime and HBO has officially confirmed when that will be.
Season eight of the multi award-winning drama will be its last, which means there are only two more seasons to go.
HBO’s new head of programming Casey Boys said: “Believe me, as the new guy if I could get them do to more, I would take 10 more seasons.
“But we take their lead on what they think they can do [to make] the best version of the show.”
Season seven will be predominantly shot in Iceland, which means a delay on when it can air. We will see it in summer 2017 with seven episodes rather than the usual 10.
HBO confirmed “Game of Thrones” will therefore miss the cut-off for Emmy consideration, which will give every other show on the planet a massive sigh of relief, as well as a chance of winning.
