‘Game Of Thrones’ showrunners confirm series will end after two more seasons

There's only 13 more episodes left

Game Of Thrones showrunners have confirmed that the HBO series will finish after two more seasons.

Rumours had suggested the show would only run for another 13 episodes, spread over two series, and David Benioff and Dan Weiss have revealed that to be true.

“We’re trying to tell one cohesive story with a beginning, middle and end,” said Benioff. “As Dan said, we’ve known the end for quite some time and we’re hurtling towards it.”

As Paste reports, Benioff continued: “The thing that has excited us from the beginning, back to the way we pitched it to HBO is, it’s not supposed to be an ongoing show, where every season it’s trying to figure out new story lines.

“We wanted it to be one giant story, without padding it out to add an extra 10 hours, or because people are still watching it. We wanted to something where, if people watched it end to end, it would make sense as one continuous story. We’re definitely heading into the end game now.”

The pair said the whole story would clock in at 73 hours in total, with 60 hours of that time having already aired.
