It’s not a very big surprise that HBO has big plans for it’s biggest show. HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo confirmed Game of Thrones will likely have at least eight seasons. He made the following statement as reported by EW:
“Seven seasons and out has never been the conversation. The question is, ‘How much beyond seven are we going to do?’ Obviously we’re shooting six now, hopefully discussing seven. [The show runners] feel like there’s two more years after six. I would always love for them to change their minds, but that’s what we’re looking at right now.”
Lombardo also took the time to discuss a potential prequel series, which he did not rule out, saying:
“…if [George R.R. Martin] and Dan and David decide they want to tackle that. At this point, all the focus is on the next few years of the show. We haven’t had any conversations about that at this point.”
Season 6 of the fantasy series is set to air in April 2016.
