Or do you want a full ten episode order?

In an exclusive interview with Variety, Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss revealed they're considering making seasons 7 and 8 shorter.

“I think we’re down to our final 13 episodes after this season. We’re heading into the final lap,” said Benioff. “That’s the guess, though nothing is yet set in stone, but that’s what we’re looking at.”[1]

If they get their way, the 7th season would consist of seven episodes, while the 8th season would consist of six episodes.

HBO ordered ten episodes for Seasons 1 through 6, and they made it clear they're still in negotiations for seasons 7 and 8.

“That’s my understanding from them right now," HBO programming president Michael Lombardo confirmed. “We’re still in conversations."[1]

Spoiler alert!

I personally support a shorter 7th and 8th season, mainly because Jon Snow, one of the most interesting characters, was killed off in the last episode of season 5...
