Final season of Game of Thrones will only be six episodes-long confirms HBO
No sooner had the trailer of season 7 of Game of Thrones been revealed, that it became talk of the town.

Not that it wasn't talk of the town before, but the release of the trailer just added more tongues to it. Game of Thrones is unarguably one of the most popular TV series HBO has ever produced. Given its plot, the twists, turns, absolutely unexpected deaths and its raunchy scenes, the fans have gone crazy all through the journey that Game of Thrones has made and will surely claw each others' eyes out (in GOT lingo) to stick to this journey.

But, all great things come to an end and Game of Thrones is also approaching its own. The entire series based on George RR Martin's writings is going to be 8 seasons-long. All the other seasons so far have been a compilation of 10 episodes each spanning of about 1-hour duration. But as season 7 approaches, HBO has confirmed that this season will be only 7 episodes-long and subtract one more to that and the grand finale season 8 of the Game of Thrones epic will be only six episodes-long.

HBO programming president Casey Bloy also said that this will be the last season of the famous TV series.

"I think [the showrunners, DB Weiss and David Benioff] have a very specific plan about the number of seasons they want to do," Bloy told reporters at the time.

"If I could get them to do more, I would take 10 seasons, but we want to take their lead with what they could do and what the best version of the show is." he added.

I can already hear the fans crying their hearts out to the end of the GOT journey!
