Game of Thrones showrunners and cast have been pretty open about the number of episodes for the final eighth season of the hit HBO fantasy show but the network is trying their best to get David Benioff & Dan Weiss produce more than 6 episodes. HBO president Casey Bloys tells EW:

“They’re still figuring out the shape of the season, what they want to do. I’ll take as many as they want to do. If they give me eight, I’ll want 10. But it’s really up to them. They’ll let me know.”

In a separate interview with TVLine, Bloys revealed that HBO is yet to renew Game of Thrones for season 8 due to uncertainty over the number of episodes:

“The only thing we’re working out is how many episodes they want to do. I hope Benioff and Weiss will deliver more than six episodes. They always do what they think [will yield] the best version of the show. It’s all about how many they’re comfortable [with]. But I’ll always take more… If you’re afraid we’re not going to do an eighth season, I assure you we’re going to.”
