Season six of Game of Thrones just came to a bloody end, and we're already having some serious withdrawal issues. If you're in the same boat, let's all remember that the end of one season just means the beginning of speculation about another!

Oh My God! 'Game Of Thrones' Only Has 13-15 Episodes Left?!

29 June 2016 7:44 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Say it ain't so!

In a chat with Deadline, the producers of HBO's acclaimed series Game Of Thrones has only 13-15 episodes left in it. This, despite Sunday's season finale being the highest-rated in the show's history. For some time, the understanding has been that Game Of Thrones wouldn't make it past an eighth season, but with the rollicking success of season six, you'd think there would be some chatter about extending the show's lucrative run.

Sadly, the producers sound like they're going to stick to their guns. Similar to when Jerry Seinfeld pulled the plug on his massively successful sitcom at the end of the 90s, stunning pop culture by not wanting to overstay his welcome- rather than milking it for all it's worth (I'm looking at you, The Walking Dead!), Game Of Thrones will not only wrap up in the eighth season, but these final two seasons might be shorter than usual! »

Game of Thrones Bosses Confirm That Seasons 7 and 8 Will Be Shorter Than Ever Before

28 June 2016 7:27 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Winter is coming a lot sooner than any of us may be ready for. Following their explosive season six finale, Game of Thrones co-creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have made it clear that there are only but a handful of episodes left to spread across the final two seasons of their HBO hit. "It's two more seasons we're talking about. From pretty close to the beginning, we talked about doing this in 70-75 hours, and that's what we'll end up with," Benioff told Deadline. "Call it 73 for now." For those not keeping score at home, each of GoT's six seasons have been made up of 10 episodes each, bringing the series to a current total of 60 hours and leaving us with only 13-15 to »

"Thrones" Has Only 13-15 Episodes Left

28 June 2016 4:05 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

As fans patiently wait until next year for the seventh season of HBO's "Game of Thrones," showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff have given a post-finale interview about the future of the show and confirmed reports that there aren't many hours left in the story of the battle for the throne of Westeros.

Benioff and Weiss have indicated that they want to finish their adaptation at around the 73 episode mark - the most recent finale bringing that total up to 60. All indications are now that the show will go out with two shorter seasons, and the pair are sticking with that plan for now. Weiss tells Deadline:

"It's two more seasons we're talking about. From pretty close to the beginning, we talked about doing this in 70-75 hours, and that's what we'll end up with. Call it 73 for now. What Dan says is really true, but it's not just trying not to outstay your welcome. »

'Game of Thrones': Why Jon Snow's real name is important...

Game of Thrones gave fans what they'd been waiting for all season on Sunday night's finale "The Winds of Winter": the confirmation that, yes, R+L=J. Sly dogs that they are, they teased us with a secondary mystery even in the midst of solving the primary... Enter If You Will, There Are Spoilers Ahead: You are a Stark, Jon. You're just not the Stark you thought you were.  As we saw in the season 6 finale, Bran Stark returned to allow the scene at The Tower of Joy play out. There he saw his father Ned attempt to rescue his aunt Lyanna, but it was too late. Lyanna lay in a bed of blood (which looked to be created by far more than a childbirth gone wrong, honestly.)  Ned was handed Lyanna's infant boy and made to promise to protect him. Now, she didn't turn to camera and say, »

The Winds of Winter

Written by: David Benioff and D. B. Weiss

Directed by: Miguel Sapochnik

In the extra-long finale we’ve witnessed the pieces be moved upon the board both rapidly and violently.  Here finally do we see Daenerys set sail towards the West, Cersei deliver vengeance upon all that have crossed her, Jon Snow become the King of the North and Arya Stark return to be a smiling Westeros assassin.

Kings Landing (or how to scratch a troublesome itch).

Everything is building up to the High Sparrows final show; first the warm up act with trial of Ser Loras Tyrell and then the pièce de résistance with the trial of the Queen Mother Cersei.  The stage is set within the Sept, the Sparrows are there in force – the High Sparrow, the High Septon of the Faith of the Seven, Margaery Tyrell (The Queen and Tommen’s wife), Lord »

Game of Thrones EPs Talk 'Cohesive' 13-Ep End Game 'Without Padding'

As if Sunday’s crazy-town Game of Thrones finale didn’t serve as enough confirmation, HBO’s dragons-and-drama juggernaut is nearing the finish line. And no amount of pressure — public, presidential, or otherwise — will change that, according to exec producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

In an interview with Deadline, the pair were asked about the possibility of continuing the still-wildly-popular series — which counts President Obama among its fans — beyond the previously-announced 13-episode split-season swan song. “Like President Obama, we want to leave while all the people watching this show are really into it,” responded Weiss. “Get out at a »
