HBO’s programming president Casey Bloys confirmed at the Television Critics Association's press tour today in Beverly Hills that Game of Thrones will wrap up after its eighth season. 

While many suspected this was the case, this is the first official confirmation that Game of Thrones will complete at that point in time. The two final seasons will also be shortened in comparison to prior seasons: Season 7 has a planned seven episodes, and Season 8 will have six. Bloys said that the idea of a Game of Thrones spin-off has been discussed by the team, and that he's open to it, but "there's no concrete plans."

Game of Thrones return with Season 7, which has been delayed to Summer 2017 because of weather concerns for filming.
