Game of Thrones ending after season 8, HBO confirms

However at that stage season eight hadn't been confirmed as the final series.

It's official, folks. Following speculation that Game Of Thrones was coming to an end, HBO have confirmed the show will indeed end after series eight. "We'll take as many as they're willing to give us".

While Game of Thrones will definitely be ending with season 8, is there hope of a spinoff? "I would take 10 more seasons", he added, raging against harsh reality like a true, god-forsaken citizen of Westeros.

There were a number of questions about on-screen violence against women on HBO series, with Westworld, The Night of and Game of Thrones mentioned.

"We're open to it, the (producers) aren't opposed to it, but there's no concrete plans right now", Bloys said.

The news comes after HBO sent "GoT" fans everywhere into a tailspin with a press release announcing that Season 7 of the fantasy saga would only consist of seven episodes and debut in Summer 2017, months later than initially anticipated.

HBO is looking into a female-led talk show: While there's nothing officially in the works, Bloys said that HBO is very open to having a female-led talk show on the network. But "with a little bit of distance, it really becomes about priorities: Are we really going to get this from good to great?" I'm not sure the guys can wrap their heads around it when they are about to start production. That means that the network has just two seasons left of the show, as Season 7 will air next summer.

The eighth and final season is expected to follow in 2018. HBO has had great success with political-drama films "Recount" (about the 2000 presidential election) and "Game Change" (the 2008 John McCain-Sarah Palin candidacy).
