HBO has targeted an end to the hit series.
July 31, 2016
A few months after Game of Thrones was renewed for a seventh season, HBO has confirmed that plans are in place to end the series after Season 8, which has yet to be formally announced. The move doesn't come as a complete shock, as rumors ahead of its previous renewal speculated that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were eyeing two last seasons to end the show.
The adaptation of George R.R. Martin's fantasy drama has been a massive hit for HBO, and even after eight seasons will still be going out on top, as its ratings show no sign of slowing down any time soon. With such huge numbers, it's no surprise that the cable network has stated that they'd be happy to do plenty more seasons of the show, but as it stands now, they are letting the showrunners take the lead as to when to conclude the series.
Fans might be interested to hear that, while nothing as been announced, the possibility of a future Game of Thrones spinoff is on the table. HBO programming president Casey Bloys said today that he's open to the idea down the road as long as the producers are on board and it makes sense creatively.

I'm fairly sure I got the ending to the Sopranos, I just didn't like it. I thought it was a cheap exit. A show that after so many years of such amazing character development and storylines really deserved more. However if you think I'm missing something, I'd be happy to read your take on it. I'm always interested in alternate perspectives. :-)

@Thorpion Thinger that is pretty funny... Also Dexter was amazing but it ended poorly. Sorry I wont sink to your level of internet trolling. Any how I did try GoT based on recommendations and no it was not the worse series I ever seen I just couldn't get into it. Not sure what your sensitivity level is set at but what I originally posted shouldn't have offended you or anyone I did not bash the show not sure why you are so mad about my comment regarding (MY OPINION) yes people all over the world have their opinion you don't need to agree with it. But attempting to trash talk my opinion because you don't agree with it seems pretty childish. Take a chill pill next time dude someones opinion should never get you that mad enough to try and come at someone just saying. Keep this site clean we don't need that kind of community around here. :)

opposite guy: Well you are living up to your name. Everything you said is the opposite of the truth and the facts.

Dang Thorpion! Don't forget to bag the ashes, because you just burned that guy down. Anywhoo..I basically agree with the others that mentioned they're happy to see the show end after season eight. I'm sure R.R. Martin could continue to write content for the GoT universe and I'm positive HBO would give every penny asked for by the production staff to put it together, but eventually there would come a point where the series would begin to lose its steam, or lead actors would drop out, storylines would become repetitive, etc. Bas
ically all of the things that haunt any good show that runs longer than 5-7 seasons.
It seams that the GoT team was well aware of this too and made the right call to go out on top. Let's just hope and prey they don't screw the pooch right at the end like the Sopranos.

Malvaudo reminds me of a clueless tard on Bellgab named Bateman who whined about how Dexter had been recommended to him but when he "tried" to watch it, it wasn't any good. He didn't even completely view Season 1. People like that suck and give free speech a bad name... brandishing their low IQ as if it is a "badge of warranted criticism." I hate to break the news to you lowbrow excuses for informed critics... you cannot correctly size up a show that has run for several seasons, by viewing less than a season. In reality, they fancy themselves as "above" whatever it is they are panning, believing it reflects their high sense of aesthetics, their exceptional intelligence, and yadda yadda ya. Morons. What's worse, these morons often troll boards, asking for advice on what to watch! (as did Bateman) Pathetic. Then again, what should I expect when lurking at Bellgab? No. Dexter didn't suck. But Bellgab sucks quite a bit. Also, why would this Malvaudo bring up something so irrelevant as a "time slot" in this day and age of digitally recording anything you want? Is Malvaudo sitting there on the edge of his seat at that time slot, only to be disappointed again and again when GOT comes on? Idiot. Malvaudo? Watch at least four seasons and then voice your opinion. Until then, you're dead to me. DEAD. TO. ME. "Hoping HBO has something amazing to replace the time slot." SICKENING. Hoping your dick falls off.
