With Game Of Thrones freshly renewed for Season 7, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss reiterate to THR that the fantasy drama is approaching the finishing line, with 10-15 hours of the show remaining post-Season 6:
There is a lot of talk about the show approaching the endgame. Game of Thrones is an incredibly valuable property to HBO. Why walk away after potentially two more seasons? While shows like Mad Men were stretched out and split in half, how are you approaching bringing this all to a close?
We’re not walking away. We’re approaching the finish line. From the outset, our hope was to tell a complete story — beginning, middle and end. We are writing the final act now, and the last thing we want to do is stay on stage after the play is over.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the endgame status of the Game Of Thrones…
