Game of Thrones to Continue for 8 Seasons, but Jon Snow is Dead

Game of Thrones to Continue for 8 Seasons, but Jon Snow is Dead

Yes, Jon Snow is dead, even HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo agrees to it when he says, “Everything I’ve seen, heard and read, Jon Snow is indeed dead,” but the show must go on and it seems that Game of Thrones is likely to continue for another three seasons even though the book ends after the seventh.


Don’t be upset, Lombardo never said anything about the popular and beloved Jon ‘remaining’ dead! Even with the Season 5 finale ending on a raging controversy about the depiction of graphic violence, the show is still a hot favourite with an average of 20 million viewers. It also received 24 Emmy nominations including best drama.


We do know for a fact that the sixth season is being filmed and there is a possibility of more. While David Benioff and Dan Weiss have always maintained that there will be seven seasons in accordance with the book, Lombardo recently said, “They are feeling two more years after six. I would always love for them to change their minds, but that’s what we’re looking at right now.” He was even hopeful about a prequel if it could be pulled off but said, “It really would depend fully on what they wanted to do. There’s enormous storytelling to be mined in a prequel, if George and Dan and David decide they want to tackle that. At this point, all the focus is on the next few years of the show. We haven’t had any conversations about that at this point.” 2

‘Game of Thrones’ is based on George RR Martin’s fictional series, ‘A Song of Ice and Fire books.’ Incidentally the sixth book is still being written and the seven waiting in the wings.
