hbo game of thrones series 6 april teaser

It's been rumoured for months, but now it's official: 'Game of Thrones' will end after series eight.

US broadcaster HBO confirmed the news at the recent Television Critics Association's conference.

The epic fantasy drama – which is based on the series of novels by George RR Martin – will have its final series in 2018. But that might not be the last we see of it. Indeed, the series might get a spinoff, hinted HBO programming chief Casey Bloys.

"We're open to it, [the producers] aren't opposed to it, but there's no concrete plans right now," he said.

Series seven will air next year, but will start in the summer instead of the spring. That's because filming will start later in order to make sure the series' locations look more wintery.

Series seven will consist of just seven episodes, which is fewer than the 10 of other series. Series eight is rumoured to be similarly truncated, but Bloys wouldn't confirm or deny this.

"We'll take as many as the [producers] will give us," he said.
