With 2017 officially entering the scene at midnight, the time has come to look forward to the year's new television and movies. And now TV show is quite as massively popular as HBO's megahit Game of Thrones. Unfortunately, the fantasy series is quickly coming to an end, with the premium network only airing two more seasons before Westeros' story is finally concluded. But diehard fans are disappointed that Season 7 and 8 will be shorter in length than the previous six. Well, it turns out that the shorter seasons might turn out especially great, considering how long Game will be shooting for.

Actor Iain Glen plays Jorah Mormont in Game of Thrones, and recently opened up regarding the upcoming shorter seventh season. While speaking to Radio Times, Glen said the following about the show's short final seasons.

They are taking the length of time it takes to shoot ten episodes to shoot just seven this year and six next year. There are fifteen more hours left in Thrones as we understand it, but that may change, but that's as far as we know. I think the scale and size of the set pieces, the world that is being created it's just getting more and more extraordinary and they feel they need that time to shoot seven hours as opposed to ten.

Well, there you go ladies and gents. The upcoming final seasons of Game of Thrones are taking just as long as the traditional seasons, meaning that there is a crap ton of work going into each episode. So we can likely expect something fantastic from the final seasons of Game.

Season 6 of Game of Thrones certainly felt like a game changer for the series. After seeing the various storylines and characters interact independently for the majority of the series, last season finally saw characters interacting and crossing over with each other. Fan theories came to fruition, and the explosive finale saw Daenerys finally sailing to Westeros alongside Tyrion, Varys, and the Tyrell and Martell fleets. We've been seeing Khaleesi slowly accrue resources over six years, and her impending arrival to Westeros proper is enough to make fanboys drool.

While Iain Glen's statement about Season 7 of Game of Thrones is exciting, one has to wonder what his role will be like in the upcoming seasons. Jorah was largely absent in Season 6, after he professed his love for Dany and she sent him away to find a cure for greyscale. He's not aboard her ships to Westeros, so Jorah would have to find a cure and then sail back home in order to be relevant to the show's overall plot.
