It’s official!

GAME OF THRONES executive producers David Benioff and D.B Weiss was part of the panel at this year’s SXSW Festival and confirmed what the previous rumors were, the final eight season of the hit fantasy series will consist of six episodes.

Benioff said:

“It’s only going to be six episodes for the final season. From the beginning we’ve wanted to tell a 70-hour movie. It will turn out to be a 73-hour movie, but it’s stayed relatively the same of having the beginning, middle and now we’re coming to the end. It would have been really tough if we lost any core cast members along the way, I’m very happy we’ve kept everyone and we get to finish it the way we want to.”

The duo also confirmed that they won’t be involved in any prequels or spinoffs that HBO might plan after the series wraps up.

Benioff said:

“I think HBO might well do [another series] and I look forward to watching it and I think it be great, but I think they should get new blood in.”

In addition, producers have confirmed that Grammy Award-winning musician Ed Sheehan will have a cameo in the upcoming seventh season, this was something to be of a surprise for star Maisie Williams for many years and finally comes true.

GAME OF THRONES season 7 consist of 7 episodes and premieres on July 16, 2017.

Benioff, Weiss, Carolyn Strauss, Frank Doelger and Bernadette Caulfield produce. Guymon Casay, Vince Gerardis, George R.R Martin, an Bryan Cogman co-executive produce. Chris Newman, Greg Spence and Lisa McAtackney produce.
