The news fans have been waiting and expecting to hear. Following the explosive finale of the sixth season, HBO has confirmed that Game of Thrones is returning to two more seasons, only these ones won’t be as long as the ten episodes per the usual season length. Fans of the show will have to wait a bit longer for the new season though, which will premiere in summer 2017, when they usually come out in Spring.
The new season will only consist of seven episodes, the following season eight running at one less with six. If it’s a good time to catch up on the goings on of Westeros, now is the perfect time.
