I can't believe we're gonna know how game of thrones ends in less than 2 years— natha(liar[hianno])n (@dixongrimes_) July 30, 2016
Last month, the show’s producers had confirmed that the upcoming seventh season will only last seven episodes. This led to speculation that the seventh season could also be the end of the show, which has won 26 Primetime Emmy Awards till date.
