Fans are excited about the return of the blockbuster show “Game of Thrones” as the sixth season got over on an interesting note and left many questions unanswered and much to get unfolded. More so is the gossip that the show may come to an end soon but for sure the seventh season is not the final one.

How long the epic will run is a question everyone wants to know and inside information indicates that the next or the eight seasons may be the final one.

The latest season got delayed as usually the show pioneers in spring but as the sixth season ended in winter so the seventh season may go onscreen during summers as the shooting is still wrapped and few episodes are still to be shot.

Producers are hopeful to get good weather and daylight for shooting few real booming scenes and yes the season is indicated to be a shorter one as it may have only seven episodes this season.

But to care your hearts, the news comes that the shooting will take same hours to complete as earlier longer seasons so fans can hope and expect a higher scale and size of pieces this time.
