Description: Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne continues.  It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men…all play the ‘Game of Thrones.’  An original series based on George R.R. Martin’s best-selling ‘A Song of Ice and Fire’ series.

Season End Status: This show delivered its strongest season yet ratings-wise and also received plenty of accolades from critics and fans.  But the story is in the process of winding down now, and the final seasons will have a shortened episode count.  The seventh season is set to return in Summer 2017 (a little later than usual due to production challenges) and will only have seven episodes.  HBO has also announced that this show’s eighth season will be its last (and will probably have a shortened episode count as well).  A spin-off series is being considered at this point, but there are no firm plans for that yet.
