Emilia Clarke in 'Game of Thrones' © HBO Emilia Clarke in 'Game of Thrones' In the age of constant TV revivals, the huge success off Game of Thrones would make it a natural choice revive at some point after its eighth and final season ends. But HBO says it will never happen.

The cast are currently filming the final six episodes of the Primetime Emmy Award-winning series in a grueling and ambitious production schedule that will delay transmission until next year.

"That's not happening," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "This story, A Song of Fire and Ice, is done. There's no revival, reboot, spinoff talk."

The Game of Thrones cast have previously promised that the eighth season truly will be bigger than ever in every possible way- yet 'bigger' doesn't necessarily equate to extended episodes, according to Bloys.

Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Maisie Williams et al. are posing for a picture: No one would actually want to live in the Westeros from George R.R. Martin's mind, right? We definitely wouldn't want a life in that universe, however, it might be fun to visit a version of it, just for a quick vacation. This year, a safe and pleasant — but very cold — take on Westeros has become a reality at Lapland Hotels' SnowVillage in Finland.In 2018, the SnowVillage, which, according to it's website, is created every year with nearly 45 million pounds of snow and over 770,000 pounds of ice, was designed in collaboration with HBO Nordic and has an impressive Game Of Thrones theme. The GOT -inspired destination is a little over 20,000 square feet and is made up of a hotel, two restaurants, a bar, and even a chapel for weddings — don't worry, we're sure marriages that start here will be much more successful than those tragic ones portrayed in Game Of Thrones.Each element of the village is actually made of snow and ice and has Game Of Thrones features sculpted by artists from across Europe. Just as like in Winterfell, visitors are encouraged to wear clothing that's appropriate for the cold weather, though the SnowVillage's website insists that it "remains at a comfortable -2 and -5 celsius degrees, regardless of the outdoor temperature."

Inside, there's a snowy adaptation of the Hall of Faces found in Braavos and even an icy Iron Throne that usually sits in the Great Hall of Red Keep in King's Landing. Visitors may even spot a White Walker, which we thought never went beyond the Wall.Lapland Hotels SnowVillage is taking reservations now through August. Those who aren't staying at the hotel or eating at the restaurants can still visit to see all the sights. which is great since frozen in ice is the only way, outside of books and television, that we'd want to experience the world created for Game Of Thrones.

"It really will be dependent on when the showrunners get the cuts and what they're happy with," he said.

"Everything on Game of Thrones is driven by their desire to make the best show possible. When we're going to air, how long the episodes are - we're taking their lead on what they need."

Game of Thrones returns next year on HBO in the US and Sky Atlantic in the UK.
