Final Game of Thrones Season To Be Shortened.

Published: March 16, 2017

Interesting news out of the GOT camp from the SXSW panel. Show creators David Benioff and DB Wiess confirmed that the final season of Game of Thrones will only consist of 6 episodes.

As many have known by now, Game of Thrones will end after the 8th season. With news that Season 7 will only run 7 episodes, the news of having the 8th and final season run shorter is not something many people wanted to hear.

How much further can this show go on without actual material from George RR Martin himself? We understand that Martin himself has provided the GOT crew with plot points, but seeing how there may only be 13 episodes left, fans fear that the ending may be rushed.

On the flip side, season 6 ended perfectly by wrapping up 6 years of storyline to set up what could be the final battle. If it takes 13 episodes and nothing more to tell the great war of Fire and Ice in Westeros, I'm all for this.

What do you viewers think on the confirmation of the 6 episode final season of Game of Thrones?
