No matter how unbelievable and despairing it may sound, massively popular HBO TV series “Game of Thrones” is entering its final lap, and after “Game of Thrones” Season 6 ends, fans will only have two seasons more to know who will ultimate sit on the Iron Throne.

In an interview with Variety, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss revealed that they are considering shortening the final seasons after Season 6. Thus, the ending will be abbreviated and fans may feel that the world is crashing down for them.

The showrunners said that they are seriously considering wrapping up the Westeros saga and there will only be 13 more episodes after Season 6. “Game of Thrones” Season 7 will have seven episodes and Season 8, only six.

“I think we’re down to our final 13 episodes after this season. We’re heading into the final lap. That’s the guess, though nothing is yet set in stone, but that’s what we’re looking at,” Benioff said.

They also revealed why they are planning to shorten the seasons and that reason is justified. They are doing so for the fans so that they get the feeling of a mid-range movie.

“It's crossing out of a television schedule into more of a mid-range movie schedule,” Weiss said.

Thus, they are shortening the season so that they can put more money into the existing episodes and wow their audience like never before. That would be interesting and won’t be nothing short of making history. “Game of Thrones” is reportedly going back into production again in July.

The showrunners have always pointed out the fact that they want “Game of Thrones” to be different from any other show. Last year, Benioff had also pointed out in another Variety interview that the only thing that got them excited was to not make a regular series and have a show “with a beginning, a middle and an end.”

“We know what the end is, and we're barreling towards it. So the idea that we're going to try and stretch it out by an extra couple years just because we're all having a good time doing it and people are making money off it just feels like it would be a betrayal,” he added.

“Game of Thrones” Season 6 hits screens April 24. It will premiere April 25 on showcase on Foxtel Australia.
