Game of Thrones producers have confirmed they are almost halfway through the cult fantasy series, insisting they will end the show after a seventh season.
The drama adaptation of writer George R.R. Martin’s book series will return for its fourth season next month, and show creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss have revealed they will be using upcoming episodes to direct storylines towards the end of the series.
Benioff tells Vanity Fair, “It feels like this is the midpoint for us. If we’re going to go seven seasons, which is the plan, season four is right down the middle, the pivot point.
“I would say it’s the goal we’ve had from the beginning…. (but) to start on a show and say your goal is seven seasons is the height of lunacy. Once we got to the point where we felt like we’re going to be able to tell this tale to its conclusion, that became (an even clearer) goal. Seven gods, seven kingdoms, seven seasons. It feels right to us.”
