They have revealed that GOT will end with Seasons 7 and 8. While Season 7’s episode count was set at seven last summer, before it went into production, the length of GOT’s final installment had been in flux. Benioff and Weiss had said that they were considering a 6-episode final season but that was not set in stone. As of now, there still is no a firm episode count.
“We are talking about it,’ HBO president of programming Casey Bloys told Deadline at TCA. There is no rush. Seasons 7 and 8 won’t be filmed back-to-back, so there is time to lock that in. While renewal for GOT has never been in doubt, it traditionally has been done around the previous season premiere.

Gwendoline looked so stunning tonight. Her gown was beautiful and I really loved her hair style. Thanks to Kaci & Kayla for helping me get some of these pictures! I’ll add more tomorrow as soon as I can!
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – With 60 episodes under its belt and counting, HBO’s Game of Thrones has produced an enormous amount of characters — some more successful than others, sure, but almost all of them distinct and memorable in their own right.
Indeed, the ensemble is so vast that you could anoint virtually any character as your personal favorite, and you wouldn’t be wrong. Is it nothing but Jon Snow (Kit Harington) in your forecast? No argument here. Do you forsake the old gods and the new, bowing before Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) instead? Easy to see why! There’s no right or wrong way to prioritize affinity toward the heroes and villains of the HBO fantasy series — which is a helpful thing to keep in mind while considering how we have prioritized these characters.
With that out of the way, here’s how The Hollywood Reporter ranks the top 30 characters featured on Game of Thrones, through six seasons of the series:
8. Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie)
There are countless incredible images found all over the show, but Brienne charging into battle on horseback at the start of season six, rescuing Sansa (Sophie Turner) at just the right time, stands out as one of the most triumphant. Brienne the Beauty is often at the heart of some of the show’s best and most touching scenes, from bonding in the bath with Jaime, to the outright visceral awesomeness of her battle against the Hound, to her swift execution of Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) and beyond. Here’s to many more horse-and-sword battles to come.
