Game of Thrones is ending. As of 2018, there won’t be any more severing of penises, baring of tits for dragons, or medieval Peter Dinklage hotness. EW reports that HBO has confirmed that season eight will be the last one for the mega-popular series (25 million people watch it!). George R.R. Martin (aka that guy who looks like Santa Claus’ disheveled brother who lives in a sea shanty) only wrote so many books. So it had to end eventually, right? Several 1000 dudebrahs in “Crows Before Hoes” tees just snarled at me en masse.
EW asked the network’s new programming president Casey Bloys if he plans to go along with showrunners’ David Benioff and Dan Weiss’ oft-stated desire to end their fantasy hit with season 8.
Bloys said yes, that is the current plan – the first time somebody at HBO has confirmed this.
Not only will season eight be the end, but it will only be six episodes. Bloys was asked if there will be any spin-offs in the future, and revealed that the show-running dungeon masters of GoT are too busy writing the next season to even consider it.
It’s probably only a six episode ending because dragons breathe fire and the main villains are creatures made out of ice. The dragons have got this. It will end with triumph over puddles. And more tits out for dragons. And probably a rape or ten. *sad face*
