The drama’s seventh season is expected to premiere in summer 2017.
The end really is sight for ‘Game of Thrones’ fans. The epic fantasy drama will be coming to an end after its eight season, HBO programming president Casey Bloys has confirmed. But while the news may sound bad for fans of the show, there's still hope for a potential spin off.
‘Game of Thrones’ will be coming to an end after its eighth season.
Speaking on Saturday (July 30) at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, Bloys confirmed that season eight would be the show’s last. "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," he said.

For X-Men: Apocalypse, several new young actors joined the ensemble and were forced to hit the ground running alongside their more experienced costars.
Jennifer Lawrence said the newcomers weren't given an easy start: "They really get punched and beaten like the rest of us." To which James McAvoy responds that "they gave as good as they got as well. That's cool." Newcomers to the cast have likened the film to a summer camp where everyone hangs out together both on set and off. "We did everything together," says Sophie Turner, who joined the ensemble as Jean Grey. "Everybody plays together. We had a cast coordinator that organised events for us to go to, so it was like a bonding experience."
This made it easier for her to work on creating a character. And talking with Famke Jansson, who played Jean in the first X-Men trilogy, helped. "The difference between this and Famke's Jean Grey," Turner says, "is that she's young, insecure and very alienated, even from the other mutants, because she's so powerful. She's also going through all the hormones and the boys and the stuff that every teenager goes through. Being a mutant ain't easy! So there's a real vulnerability to her, and it's great to see how she and Scott [Tye Sheridan as Cyclops] find each other through that alienation. She's a great role to play."

X-Men Apocalypse comes as the ninth instalment in the X-Men film series and stars Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy as Raven and Professor X. The X-Men are made up of a subspecies of humans that are born with superhuman abilities and are able to perform acts that are considered not normal for the average human.

This closing chapter of the First Class trilogy falls into the same trap as The Last Stand, the final part in the original X-Men trilogy: it shifts the focus from character detail and social commentary into a more standard effects-heavy action brawl. There's still a lot of strong character detail, and a big story that can't help but be entertaining. But it's impossible to escape the feeling that the film's scale is far bigger than it needed to be.
It's now 1983, and while Professor X (James McAvoy) works with Hank (Nicholas Hoult) to set up his school for young mutants, his old friend and nemesis Erik (Michael Fassbender) has started a family in a rural corner of Poland. But he can't hide forever. Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) is roaming the world helping mutants where she can, meeting the teleporting Kurt (Kodi Smit-McPhee) in Berlin before heading to Cairo. There, CIA operative Moira (Rose Byrne) has just uncovered a bizarre underground cult that has revived the ancient super-mutant Apocalypse (Oscar Isaac), who immediately sets out on a quest to cleanse the planet and start over again. He needs four assistants, and the question is which of the X-Men will go over to the dark side.
This is the third comic book movie in a row about superheroes fighting each other, after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War. And it's similarly enormous (all three films are around two-and-a-half hours long), with mammoth battles that don't quite make logical sense but are compelling enough that the audience goes with them. This film has a bit more emotional depth, including back-stories that have been developed with unusual complexity. But some characters fall through the cracks.

'Game of Thrones' returns to HBO on April 24th.
‘Game Of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke has promised that the sixth season of the medieval fantasy drama will be bigger and more exciting than ever before, but revealed that filming it “legitimately almost killed” the cast and crew.
The HBO series will be returning at the end of April, with Clarke starring once again as Daenerys ‘Mother of Dragons’ Targaryen, in the next adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s series of epic novels. The plotlines are probably the most closely guarded secret in the entertainment industry at the moment, particularly as the timeline will overtake where Martin has actually gotten to with his books.
Emilia Clarke spoke a little about 'Game of Thrones' season 6
Things are really getting serious now.
Ok, I didn’t want to do this, but we have to. Let’s talk Game of Thrones. Particularly after last week’s awful, awful, bad thing that the writers put in unnecessarily, because why not have another rape scene disempowering a central character, in a show that’s supposedly all about powerful women. Oh yeah, if you haven’t figured it out already, SPOILERS. All of the spoilers.
George R. R. Martin with the Game of Thrones cast in 2013. Let's play a game of "count the survivors".
So, a week after we had to watch the gruesome, cringe-inducing scene between Ramsay and Sansa, we find lady Stark (soon to be Bolton) in even more dire straits, if that’s even possible. Weeks after she was promised to Ramsay – in an attempt by herself and Littlefinger to win back some power and avenge her family – we find Sansa locked in her room when Reek brings her food. Bruises cover her arms. She begs the man who was once Theon to help her, makes him promise to light a candle in the tower so that someone will come to save her.
