tyrion hand of the queenGame of Thrones season 8 will be the show’s last, HBO’s programming president Casey Bloys confirmed to reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills:

“Yes, they have a very specific plan about the number of seasons they want to do. 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.”

Bloys added that the number of season 8 episodes is not yet decided but showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have hinted in the past that it will consist of 6 episodes. Season 7 of Game of Thrones has already been pushed to Summer 2017 and will only consist of 7 episodes. Bloys also hinted at the possibility of a spinoff admitting that there has been discussions about it:

“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 [Benioff and Weiss] could really wrap their heads around it when they’re just about to start production [on season 7]. 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.”
