‘Game Of Thrones’ just had one of its most explosive finales ever, but even so, the show’s creators are already planning an endpoint. To find out when the super popular series is ending, keep reading!
Winter is coming! Game of Thrones co-creaters David Benioff, 45, and D.B. Weiss, 45, recently dished on how many more episodes of the series will air before the characters’ storylines come to an end — however tragic they may be. The interview, released on June 27, comes just a day after the sixth season shocked fans in usual fashion. Find out everything here!
David revealed to HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site, Deadline that they are not planning on creating “more than 75 total episodes,” while discussing the future of the Iron Throne. D.B added, “Like President Obama, we want to leave while all the people watching this show are really into it. Get out at a high point and not have it be, well thank god that’s over.” They even revealed that they sent screeners of the hit HBO series to the White House ahead of the season 6’s release since the Head of State is also a fan.
David continued, “It’s two more seasons we’re talking about. From pretty close to the beginning, we talked about doing this in 70 to 75 hours, and that’s what we’ll end up with. Call it 73 for now. What D.B. says is really true, but it’s not just trying not to outstay your welcome. We’re trying to tell one cohesive story with a beginning, middle and end.”
The show, which is based on A Song of Ice and Fire book series, has already released sixty episodes since their 2011 premiere and each season consists of 10 episodes. Ah, can you believe we will witness the denouement kind of soon!? If you haven’t seen the latest chaos that emerged during the finale on June 26, we’ve got major SPOILERS HERE.
It’s been quite a season for the show, considering Daenerys [Emilia Clarke] continues to be the ultimate boss babe, Jon Snow [Kit Harington] follows in Ned Stark’s footsteps and Cersei [Lena Headey] pulls the CRAZIEST stunt ever. Oh, and we learn how Hodor [Kristian Nairn] got his name.
