This is some major bending of the seasons to their advantage kind of stuff.
HBO has announced that its celebrated crown jewel, Game of Thrones (23 Emmy nominations this year alone!), will be back for a shorter seventh season much later than usual in 2017.
Indeed, the show’s seventh season will feature only seven episodes (down from a traditional 10) that will premiere some time during the summer.
And Season 8? It will be just a tad shorter than seven eps, when its time comes.
Can you handle it?
