Game of Thrones to end after season eight (but there might be a spin-off)

Winter has come. HBO have confirmed there will only be two more seasons of Game of Thrones.

HBO's new programming chief Casey Bloys made the announcement on Saturday, saying:  “Believe me, as the new guy, if I could get them do to more, I would take 10 more seasons” - yes, do that - “But we take their lead on what they think they can do [to make] the best version of the show.” No. What. No. 

But before you fall into a crying heap of pain and anguish, Bloys did also hint that a potential spinoff show has been discussed. 

“It’s not something I’m opposed to, but of course it has to make sense creatively,” he said. “But there’s no concrete plans or anything at this point.” We'll take it. 

The seventh season will begin filming over the coming weeks, although it won't air until mid-2017. Until then, at least we have this gif.
