Game of Thrones fans have a lot to process this week.

Hot off the heels of the release of HBO鈥檚 newest Game of Thrones trailer and news that Ed Sheeran will be guest starring on season seven, we didn鈥檛 think we could handle any more exciting GoT news. With the showrunners participating in a panel during Austin鈥檚 SXSW this week, we expected some info surrounding the show, but not what we got teased during a panel at the famous music festival.

During a panel, David Benioff and DB Weiss teased at the possibility of a spinoff after season eight ends. According to Buzzfeed News, they not only admitted that the last season will only be six episodes long, but that there is room for more, though they don鈥檛 have anything planned themselves.

While showrunners have also teased the possibility of Sansa being killed off (NOOOOO!), we will live off the hope that HBO will allow someone to create a GoT spinoff, something Benioff says he and Weiss won鈥檛 be doing. 鈥淲e all had dinner last night, and we were all saying we should go do different things,鈥 Benioff said. 鈥淭he characters who maybe will survive 鈥 there鈥檚 always going to be this temptation to keep doing it鈥 to do the spin-off show or do the sequel show and everything.鈥

鈥淎nd I think HBO might well do one.鈥

We can only hope.
