Game Of Thrones Showrunners Confirm Every GoT Fan’s Worst Fear: There Are Very Few Episodes Left
The Season 6 finale of Game of Thrones was unquestionably epic and had everything a fan of could ask for. The finale’s magnificence resulted in historic ratings for HBO. The last episode of Season 6 was watched by 8.9 million viewers on Sunday, the most watched in the series. Last year’s Season 5 finale set a previous record of 8.1 million viewers. However, with another season coming to a brilliant end, it also means that we are coming unnervingly close to the conclusion of the Game of Thrones series forever.
There have been rumors that the final two seasons of GoT would be abbreviated for some time now. Those whispers made Game of Thrones fans full of terror, and now the worst fears have been confirmed by the showrunners.
David Benioff confirmed these unspeakable rumors to Deadline.
It’s two more seasons we’re talking about. From pretty close to the beginning, we talked about doing this in 70-75 hours, and that’s what we’ll end up with. Call it 73 for now. We’re trying to tell one cohesive story with a beginning, middle and end. As Dan said, we’ve known the end for quite some time and we’re hurtling towards it.
ONLY 13 MORE EPISODES?!?!?!?!?!
When the final episode of Game of Thrones comes and goes my joy will turn to ashes in my mouth.
And there is only one thing we say to the end of Game of Thrones, “not today.”
