    Game of Thrones will go at least eight seasons, says HBO!

    According to Entertainment Weekly, Michael Lombardo is saying that Benioff and Weiss decided they need more time to tell the story.

    The HBO President of Programming says they’re looking at 8 seasons for now:

    The question is: How much beyond seven are we going to do? Obviously we’re shooting six now, hopefully discussing seven. [Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] feel like there’s two more years after six. I would always love for them to change their minds, but that’s what we’re looking at right now.

    why do they want to do more? They need to end eventually it needs to be coming to a close soon. This isn’t Greys Anatomy or Frasier.

    This can only be bad news. The showrunners have repeatedly stated that they only want the show to go for 7 seasons. Pushing it past what they have planned won’t be good for anyone – except HBO execs. Obviously they want their most popular show to go on forever, but, if they want it to stay good, they probably shouldn’t prolong it past its expiration date.

    Just when you think GoT couldn’t get any other big name actors, they get Max von Sydow as the Three-Eyed-Raven.

    Hey, actually super talented male actors joining the show. 

    Maybe next season will be better than the garbage of Season Sansa Rape which deserved none of its Primetime Emmy noms.

    I’m just happy that we will be able to call this show a drama series winner (in all likelihood).

    While not as good as the fourth or third seasons, I still really loved season five, and am happy to be rid of book-readers.

    Great casting gets! Eight seasons sounds excessive for a series like this though.

    Jeremy Podeswa about season 6: “I’m directing the first two episodes. I’m more than halfway through already; I’ve got 16 more days left to shoot. We’re shooting in Belfast and Spain, so I’m going back and forth a few times. It’s a very complicated schedule. Doing the first two episodes is very exciting, but it’s also a little scary. Expectations are always very high at the beginning of the season, and checking in with all of the characters is a daunting prospect. But what’s great about this season is that there’s very little expository stuff. It starts off with a bang and you’re right into the excitement of the story. This is also the first season that’s not based on one of the books. So there’s an enormous fan curiosity of where we’re going to go, and that makes me equally nervous and excited. There have been so many diversions from the original story in the last couple of seasons that I think the audience is ready to go completely off-book.”
