Sad news for Game of Thrones fans as makers confirms season 8 will be last :- HBO has just responded a huge sluggish mystery about the Game of Thrones. EW asked the network’s new channel president Casey Bloys if he intends to go with show makers David Benioff and Dan Weiss’ oft-stated his to terminate their fantasy hit series with the last instalment of season 8.
Bloys said yes, that is the prevailing strategy – the first time someone at HBO has approved this.
“Yes, they have a quiet particular plan about the last number of seasons they want to do,” Bloys said at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Saturday.
“Believe me, as the new [programming executive] coming in, if I could get them to do more. I would take 10 more seasons. But we take their lead on what they think they can do the best version of the show.”
The show makers have also outlined for the last season to have only six chapters. On that aspect, though, Bloys said the correct number of instalment eight chapters is not yet decisive.
We then asked if the organisation is contemplating a Thrones spin-off to sustain the worthwhile franchise. Thrones is one of TV’s much-hyped shows with 25 million total fans this year across the globe.
“We’ve discussed it,” he said. “It’s being I’m not confronting it, but of course, it has to get insight creatively. I’m not certain that [Benioff and Weiss] could really wrap their shows around it when they’re just about to start rolling the film [on season 7]. It’s a rather brilliant composition, they’re about to start filming shortly. I’m frank to it. The guys weren’t denied to it, but there are no definite plans for it at this moment.”
Also, with the making delay of instalment seven – which will première its seven chapters next summer – the manager approved the project will take Thrones out of the working for the Emmys next time. Thrones received 23 prime-time 2016 Emmy nominations which are more than any other program but needs a massive amount of winter spot rolling for the next instalment (locations include a production unit filming in Iceland).
Still, Bloys pointed out,
“Even if we took Thrones Emmys away this year, we’d still have more than anyone else.”
