‘Game of Thrones’ to run for at least eight seasons.

That’s the word from HBO programming president Michael Lombardo, who says viewers can likely expect eight seasons total of Game of Thrones before the hit show wraps up its run. HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo defended the latest series of True Detective on Thursday at the Television Critics Association, and said that he was open for a third season if show’s creator Nic Pizzolatto was up for it. Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have said in the past that their goal was to do seven season of the fantasy series. “Seven gods, seven kingdoms, seven seasons.

It feels right to us,” Benioff said last year. “Seven-seasons-and-out has never been the [internal] conversation,” Lombardo said, reports Entertainment Weekly. “The question is: How much beyond seven are we going to do? Times reports. (Then again, he would say that either way, wouldn’t he?) And as for those proponents of R+L=J, their theory could be put to the test on screen: Lombardo hinted, “There’s enormous storytelling to be mined in a prequel.”

Lombardo also voiced his confidence in Pizzolatto, calling him “one of the best writers working in film or television who takes big swings,” according to Deadline.com. The next season is being filmed and one of the lead actresses Emilia Clarke noted that the upcoming season will be “epic” with loads of “shocking” moments. We haven’t had any conversations about [a new series] at this point.” “This show has had violence from the first episode,” he said. “There are no two showrunners who are more careful about not overstepping what they think the line is – and everybody has their own line. [What they show] is critical to the storytelling.”

The series, set in 1972 and starring Bobby Cannavale as a music executive, focuses on the sex-and-drug-fueled music business as punk and disco are rising. He added that he has been surprised by viewing levels. “I didn’t believe this season – or last season – was intended for as big an audience as we’re getting.”
