Game of Thrones wrapped up its eighth season about a week ago, and some fans are already looking for what comes after that. Game of Thrones Season 8 was supposed to have 6 episodes, but could there be a sequel? Could we actually get another episode, or maybe another season? Let’s look into it.
Before we begin, please note this post may contain official spoilers from the previous episodes of the show. 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.
Back when Season 7 of Game of Thrones was airing, we were told that the upcoming season would be the last. It was soon revealed that Season 8 would have just 6 episodes instead of 10, like a normal Game of Thrones season, or 7 like the predecessor season had. As the story has formally wrapped up, it is extremely hard to see a continuation in the form of a season.
Martin has talked about spin-offs taking place in Westeros, but he hasn’t said anything about sequels specifically. D&D won’t be working on a new show, but that doesn’t mean HBO has completely ruled it out. For now, it seems that an episode, or a new season will not be available anytime soon.
At the same time, if we do see a continuation, it’ll probably be in the form of a sequel series, not a new season. Martin said that he’ll be working on prequels for now and if they do good, we might as well see a sequel too.
