Game of Thrones: HBO confirms season 8 will be last

HBO has just answered a huge lingering question about Game of Thrones.

EW asked the network’s new programming president Casey Bloys if he plans to go along with showrunners’ David Benioff and Dan Weiss’ oft-stated desire to end their fantasy hit with season 8.

Bloys said yes, that is the current plan – the first time somebody at HBO has confirmed this.

“Yes, they have a very specific plan about the number of seasons they want to do,” Bloys said at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Saturday. “Believe me, as the new [programming executive] coming in, if I could get them to do more. I would take 10 more seasons. But we take their lead on what they think they can do the best version of the show.”

The showrunners have also planned for the eighth season to consist of merely six episodes. On that front, however, Bloys said the exact number of season eight episodes is not yet final.

We then asked if the team is considering a Thrones spin-off to continue the valuable franchise. Thrones is one of TV’s most watched shows with 25 million total viewers this year across all platforms.

“We’ve talked about it,” he said. “It’s something I’m not opposed to, but of course it has to make sense creatively. I’m not sure that [Benioff and Weiss] could really wrap their heads around it when they’re just about to start production [on season 7]. It’s a pretty intense production, they’re about to start production soon. I’m open to it. The guys weren’t opposed to it, but there’s no concrete plans for it at this point.”

Also, with the production delay of season seven – which will debut its seven episodes next summer – the executive confirmed the plan will take Thrones out of the running for the Emmys next year. Thrones received 23 prime-time 2016 Emmy nominations, more than any other show, but requires a heavy amount of winter location shooting for the next season (locations include a production unit filming in Iceland).

Still, Bloys pointed out, “Even if we took Thrones Emmys away this year, we’d still have more than anyone else.”

Kit Harington enjoyed playing a “psychotic and unpredictable” villain in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare

If there’s one thing that Call of Duty has excelled at, it’s attracting Hollywood’s greatest talent to portray some of the most diabolical villains in video game history. Kevin Spacey as Jonathan Irons in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Lance Henriksen as General Shepherd in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Kevin Gage as Captain Gabriel T. Rorke in Call of Duty: Ghosts are just a few examples of bad guys with big plans and even bigger Hollywood talent attached to them.

This year the tradition continues in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare with Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington shedding his good guy persona to portray Admiral Salen Kotch the leader of the Settlement Defense Front. Thing is, there’s always been a shade of grey when it comes to the bad guys of Call of Duty. General Shepherd sought to restore America to a position of authority on a global stage, while Irons was concerned with fighting a war in a more efficient manner without the interference of politicians who had yet to experience the horror of war first-hand.
And then there’s Salen Kotch. A leader for a new frontier beyond Earth, Kotch may just be as mad as a hatter. “You know what excited me about it was the villain. I don’t get to play villains very often, I’ve never played a villain before,” Kit Harington said in a video interview.

That was the first thing that excited me about it, and I came into the room thinking ‘I’ll do this villain thing,; I’ll do this kind of classic Bond villain thing. And as it went on it became a really interesting role. Like all best villains, [he’s] psychotic and unpredictable. I really enjoyed playing psychotic and unpredictable.

My take on Admiral Kotch is that he has an element of the dictator about him. He’s an invading commander, he’s someone who wants to control a whole race of people and he feels that he’s entitled to do that. He’s also not afraid of death. That makes him incredibly terrifying. But i think what was great with Salen Kotch is that he’s a madman. I found that very fun to play.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare gets properly psycho (IN SPACE!) on November 4.
