#HBO has not come to a decision regarding the number of episodes the 8th season of "#Game of Thrones" will have, and the producers are taking into account a spin-off, according to flickeringmyth.com. They are considering this because of the great success the famous fantasy show has had, and continues to have.
"Game of Thrones" will return with its 7th season this summer, and will only have 7 episodes. After this, the producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will finish the famous fantasy show, inspired by the novel series "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R. R. Martin with an eighth season. They originally announced that the 8th season would have only six episodes.
'Game of Thrones' 8th season has not been officially announced
However, HBO has not officially announced that they will produce the eighth season of the show. Casey Bloys, a program director from the TV channel said this decision was postponed because they are not sure yet how many episodes the last season of the show will have.
Bloys said to TV Line that the producers are working to determine the number of episodes they want to make. Bloys assured the fans of the show that the producers will make an eighth season, and that they don't have to be afraid that it won't happen. He said they are still thinking about this because they are trying to decide what the final version of the season will be.
'Game of Thrones' producers are considering making a spin-off
No matter how many episodes the 8th season of the show will have it's a fact that "Game of Thrones" will finish soon. Still, there were a lot of discussions among HBO producers about creating another series derived from the show. The action of the new TV series would take place in the same universe called Westeros, Casey Bloys said to Variety, and that it would be "stupid" not to consider a spin-off.
Bloys said that they are analyzing this possibility. He said they don't have any script and they are still very far from giving it the green light, but the TV director thinks that "Game of Thrones" is a very big universe, a truly rich world, so they would be fools not to use it. #TV Show
