Game of Thrones fans have even more
reason to rejoice – the drama will extend to
eight seasons and possibly beyond if HBO
showrunners get their way.
Despite previous comments from producers
insisting they only want to make seven
seasons of the acclaimed fantasy drama,
HBO programming president Michael
Lombardo has suggested otherwise, hinting
the show could stretch beyond eight series.
“Seven-seasons-and-out has never been the
[internal] conversation”, Lombardo said to
critics at the Television Critics Association’s
press tour, reported by Entertainment
“The question is: How much beyond seven
are we going to do? Obviously we’re
shooting six now, hopefully discussing
seven. [Showrunners David Benioff and Dan
Weiss are] feeling like there’s two more
years after six.
“I would always love for them to change
their minds, but that’s what we’re looking
at right now.”
