The past six seasons of Game of Thrones have all managed to spread their stories of love, lust, murder, and war over uniform sets of 10 episodes each. Season sevenā€™s shaking things up a bit by cutting down its episode count down to seven (the Faith of the Seven will be pleased,) but a new report says season eight will be even shorter.

According to Entertainment Weekly, sources within HBO have confirmed what showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have said in the pastā€”the last season of Game of Thrones will only be six episodes long. We have 13 more episodes of the show coming, and thatā€™s it.

Thereā€™s so much for the show to wrap up, but this certain backs up the assertion by stars Kit Harington and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau that the pace for season seven will pick up immensely. In fact, Coster-Waldau said, ā€œA lot of things that normally take a season now take one episode.ā€ So, from a certain point of view, we have 13 more seasons of Game of Thrones comingā€”theyā€™re just going to be very, very short.
