‘Game Of Thrones’ Writers Confirm There’s Only Around 13 Episodes Left
Rumors have been going around for a while now that after the spectacular Game of Thrones finale at the end of season 6, the remaining two seasons would be a lot shorter. Sadly, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss now seem to have all but confirmed that we only have around 13 to 15 episodes remaining.
Benioff told 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.”
In good news, I guess that means Gendry will have to finish rowing soon. Benioff made a compelling argument for bringing an end to the show that’s basically a license to print money:
“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. Those last images from the show that aired last night showed that. Daenerys is finally coming back to Westeros; Jon Snow is king of the North and Cersei is sitting on the Iron Throne. And we know the Night King is up there, waiting for all of them. The pieces are on the board now. Some of the pieces have been removed from the board and we are heading toward the end game.”
“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.”
Hopefully HBO will convince them to stretch out the story a bit or work on some kind of prequel. We all want to see Robert’s Rebellion.
Eeeeep.. I’m too excited but also sad if it is the last one..then what!!!??
