game of thrones season 6 13

The next series of 'Game of Thrones' will only have seven episodes, the show's director has revealed.

That's down from the usual run of 10 episodes per series, hinting that the end is indeed nigh for the show.

Asked by Vanity Fair if he would be returning to the show, Jack Bender – who has directed two episodes of series six – said: "I don't know the answer to that.

"They're only doing seven [episodes], and they've got their regulars who have done it forever."

Bender said he already had a series based on a trilogy of Stephen King books to work on in 2017, but if he was asked, and was available, he would "love" to return to the show.

The show's executive producers hinted recently that the end of the show was in sight. They said series seven would consist of seven episodes, and series eight – which would be the final one – of six episodes. Though HBO hastily issued a statement saying no decision had yet been made about future series.
