Game of Thrones Season 8 premiered on HBO on 14 April 2019. As most of you know, this is the eighth and the final season of Game of Thrones, but some fans really want the show to continue. Game of Thrones has gone down as the biggest show ever, but that doesn’t mean the show couldn’t be longer. George R. R. Martin himself wanted the show to continue for at least 14 seasons, but the showrunners D&D had other plans. So, what’s next for Game of Thrones? Could the show actually go beyond the eighth season even though we were told that this is the end? We’ll be discussing that and everything else that we know about it in this post down below.
Before we begin, please note this post may contain official spoilers from the previous episodes of the current season. If being spoiled is not for you, I suggest that you stop reading the post here. However, if spoilers don’t bother you, we can get started. Also, note that we did not create the spoilers or leaked them. They’re available all over the internet.
The short answer to all this is, no. Game of Thrones is officially ending this year. The current season will have a total of 6 episodes, and there will be no Game of Thrones Season 9. However, whether the show will continue with a spin-off or not is completely different. We already know that there are 5 different ideas on spin-offs for Game of Thrones and some of them could even be after the end of the series. Much of it depends on how the show ends, and what possibilities it leaves for the future.
We are also going to focus on a lot of the past events in the spinoffs, like the Long Night, Dance of the Dragons, Aegon’s Conquest, and maybe even Robert’s Rebellion. There is a lot to look forward to seeing for Game of Thrones fans, and you should all be excited!

Recently, David and Dan, who are the show-runners of Game of Thrones were on Jimmy Kimmel Live show, and they were riddled with lots of questions, one of which was about the fate of the White Walkers. After watching Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 3 ‘The Long Night’, we know that the Night King is dead and that the White Walkers don’t exist anymore.
David and Dan were asked whether we’ve seen the last of them, and they say they cannot answer the question. If the Walkers are dead for sure then why don’t they just say it? It would be much easier if they just did? Could there be potential for a spin-off here? Or a sequel? We think so!
We’ll let you know if, and when we get more updates!
