The drama is currently in the middle of shooting season seven, which is expected to debut sometime this summer. The show’s cast includes Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Kit Harington, Sophie Turner, Maisie Williams, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, and Emilia Clarke.
While HBO has not officially ordered an eighth season of Game of Thrones, Bloys said they’re just waiting on showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Originally, season eight was going to consist of six episodes, but now Bloys says that may not be the case:
The only thing we’re working out is how many episodes they want to do. They’re still figuring it out because I think they’re trying to get a shape of the season. They always do what they think [will yield] the best version of the show. It’s all about how many they’re comfortable [with]. But I’ll always take more. If you’re afraid we’re not going to do an eighth season, I assure you we’re going to.”
What do you think? Do you watch Game of Thrones? Do you want a longer final season?
