If you're a Game of Thrones fan, you've probably been eagerly awaiting the start of Season 6 so you can find out if a certain something really happened to a certain someone. But let's forget about Season 6 for a minute (btw, it starts April 24) and move on to Seasons 7 and 8.
On Thursday, HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo, the same guy who earlier this week took full responsobility for the trainwreck that was Season 2 of True Detective, shared some pretty awesome news. Though nothing is official, Lombardo said HBO was very close to a deal to bring back GoT for two more seasons after Season 6.
For those of you who aren't no good at remedial arithmetic, those would be Seasons 7 and 8.
Would Season 8 be the last? That's anybody's guess. On the one hand, a show like GoT could just go on forever. Any time a cast member wants out they can just kill them off. On the other hand, after a while fans lose interest in shows that never end. (Law & Order, anyone?) So eventually they probably should provide some kind of closure.
But hey, what do I know.
