So, I was watching a parody video on Youtube (mockup pitch meeting of season 8 of Game of Thrones) and there are lines they use in the video, like:

Danny, kind of forgot about Euron...

which is a real thing that one of the showrunners said.

There's another line in the video that says:

I don't want to [make more episodes]

Is that a real quote the showrunners said in an interview somewhere?

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Benioff said this:

BENIOFF: HBO would have been happy for the show to keep going, to have more episodes in the final season. We always believed it was about 73 hours, and it will be roughly that. As much as they wanted more, they understood that this is where the story ends.

So, the wording is a bit different but the message is virtually the same.

    HBO wanted to milk it, thankfully it didn't happen that way and we have a conclusion.

  • @SiXandSeven8ths D&D want to go work on their childhood dream: Star Wars. (perhaps more green too, though I don't have the numbers to substantiate that) That's also why it took so long for season 8 to be released in the first place.
