It’s official, HBO’s Game of Thrones will come to an end at Season 8—that’s after the next 7 episode instead of 10 line up for season 7.

Earlier today-Saturday, new HBO programming president-Casey Bloys told  the press at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour that “the plan is for the yet-to-be announced eighth season of the adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy drama to be its last,” reports Hollywood Reporter.

He said; “Yes, I think [the showrunners, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff] have a very specific plan about the number of seasons they want to do,” Bloys said. “If I could get them to do more, I would take 10 seasons but we want to take their lead with what they could do and what the best version of the show is.”

Producers of GOT have envisioned a total of 75 episodes—and so far, at season six, the show has produced 60 episodes.
