Once upon a time, HBO’s Girls might have ended up a very different cultural phenomenon, between Amy Schumer testing for then-miniscule role as Shoshanna, and other near-misses.

Any Game of Thrones fan has likely known for some time that Seasons 7 and 8 would mark the last for HBO’s adapted saga, though the network itself has expressed optimism for more. Now, HBO bosses dish on the plan to end with Season 8, as well what they’ve discussed with regard to a spinoff.
