According to The Variety, Game of Thrones producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss said that the eighth season of the saga will be the end of the popular fantasy HBO show.

At the same time, David Benioff said that the seventh season will consist only of 7 episodes, and the eighth and potential final season will comprise even less – 6 episodes.

"I think we’re down to our final 13 episodes after this season. We’re heading into the final lap," said Benioff.

However, he intriguingly added that "though nothing is yet set in stone, but that’s what we’re looking at."

Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series, a screen adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin's series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones.

Season six of Game of Thrones returns on Sunday, 24 April, on HBO.
