There is likely to be ‘stark’ reactions from fans of the popular drama series, Game of Thrones following the announcement that it would cease after its eight season.

The announcement was made by Casey Bloys, the head of programming at HBO; the broadcasters of the series, at a conference for television critics.

There are already signs of the end to come. The seventh season is made up of only seven episodes instead of the traditional 10 episodes and will be released in the summer of 2017.

According to Bloys, the number of episodes for the final season, which will be broadcast in 2018, is not yet known.

“We will take as many as the [producers if the show] will give us” – he said.

The TV series is based on George Martin’s best-selling book series ‘A song of Ice and Fire.” The first of the books was titled “A Game of Thrones”.

The critic website Shmoop simplifies the plot as ‘several noble houses fight a civil war over who should be king, while an exiled princess tries to find her place in the world, and the kingdom is threatened by some rising supernatural threat.” The Iron Throne is on offer for the winner.

It is shot primarily in a studio in Northern Ireland, however some scenes have been shot across the world in countries such as Iceland, Morocco and Spain. The series and its actors has won numerous awards including the Emmy Awards and the Golden Globe Awards.

Many of its characters such as Arya and Sansa Stark, Jon Snow, Tyrion, Cersei and Jamie Lannister have cult following around the world.

There are rumours of a possible spin-off after the show ends.
