It supposed that the final two seasons would have ten episodes each, but David Benioff and DB Weiss have other ideas.
#GameofThrones fans may notice the end of the Emmy award-winning series appears a little sooner than expected.
The sixth series of the blockbuster show starts on Sky Atlantic on 25 April, but managing producers say they regard a quick end to the saga of Westeros and the fight for the Iron Throne.
David Benioff and DB Weiss told Category they are considering just 13 more chapters once the sixth series is over – seven chapters for season seven and six for the eighth and probably final season.
It had expected that the last two seasons would contain the usual ten episodes each.
Benioff said: “I think we’re down to our last 13 episodes after this season.
“We’re heading into the final lap.
“That’s the guess, but nothing is yet set in stone, that’s what we’re looking at.”
HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said he had also been made conscious of the plans.
He added: “That’s my perception of them right now, those have been the discussions we’ve had.
“Because where these narratives go, it seems like another two years to them.
“As a television executive, as a fan, do I want they said another six years? I do.”
But, he added: “I’m always an idealist, and I do think we will figure this out.”
Game of Thrones is programmed to go back into production in July.
