"Game Of Thrones" Final Season Confirmed 

"Game of Thrones" executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have previously teased it, now the pair used HBO's Television Critics Association panel today to confirm that the eighth season of the series will be the show's last. HBO programming president Casey Bloys tells EW:

"They [the showrunners] have a very specific plan about the number of seasons they want to do. 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."

Bloys also spoke about the potential for a spin-off series. It sounds like the network is open to the idea but if it were to happen it would be a long way off. 

"We've talked about it, it's something I'm not opposed to, but of course it has to make sense creatively. I'm not sure that the guys could really wrap their heads around it when they're just about to start production. 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."

"Game of Thrones" recently received 23 Primetime Emmy nominations, the most of any nominee for the third year in a row. The seven episode seventh season is expected to return mid-2017.

All good things must come to an end. And that's why they stay good.

Jim Broadbent Joins "Game Of Thrones" Cast 

One of the last British acting legends who has NOT been a part of HBO's "Game of Thrones" is finally joining the lavish fantasy series in its upcoming seventh season - the one and only Jim Broadbent. 

As usual with 'Thrones' now that we've gone beyond the books, everything is being kept top secret. All that's known about Broadbent's role is that it will be significant. 

Filming on the new season will take place in Northern Ireland, Spain and Iceland, with a debut slated for Summer 2017 on HBO. The upcoming season will also be shorter than usual with just seven episodes. 

Broadbent has been in several films this past year including "Eddie the Eagle," "The Legend of Tarzan" and next month's "Bridget Jones's Diary". 

I remember Jim Broadbent when he was in the classic comedy "Only Fools and Horses" as DCI Roy Slater. He was wicked!!!

Game Of Thrones Season 7: Episodes Lengths Revealed

The premiere of Game of Thrones Season 7 is not that far away now.

After waiting almost one year for the highly anticipated return of the fantasy drama, it sucks to know that the season will span just seven episodes.

Fans have been holding onto hope that the episodes would have a longer runtime this season to make up for it, and thanks to HBO, we now know exactly how long the episodes will span.

Have a look below at the official runtimes.

Episode 1: 59 minutes

Episode 2: 59 minutes

Episode 3: 63 minutes

Episode 4: 50 minutes

Episode 5: 59 minutes

Episode 6: 71 minutes

Episode 7: 81 minutes

The most glaring thing is that Episode 4 spans just 50 minutes. That will be the shortest installment in the history of the series.

However, three episodes span 59 minutes, thus, making them one of the top 5 longest running episodes.

Episode 3 will actually run 63 minutes, which is pretty good. Who does not want to spend extra time in this vivid fantasy world?

Episode 6 will clock in at 71 minutes, while Episode 7 will be 81 minutes. Yes, those two represent a whole lot of Game of Thrones.

The seven new episodes of the series kick off July 16th.
