Sunday'sleft many fans wondering if the dragon-powered epic could really be over.
While the network and just about everyone associated with the show has, viewers who desperately want more (or perhaps just ) can now and put their money where their hopes are.
The UK's Boyle Sports is taking bets that HBO will shock the world and announce that the battle for the Iron Throne, or what's left of it, will continue for a ninth season.
HBO did not immediately return a request for comment.
In what could charitably be called a long shot (or more realistically: a sucker bet), the sports book is offering 50-to-one odds that we'll get a ninth season. Apparently, part of the rationale is the David Benioff and D.B. Weiss with new writers.for the show's final season. The Change.org petition calls on HBO to replace Game of Thrones showrunners
"All 1.3 million (and growing) people that signed the petition would be only too delighted to see a new (season) and for a different result," Boyle Sports spokeswoman Sarah Kinsella said in statement.
The online bookie is also offering odds on which character would most likely rule Westeros at the end of this hypothetical season nine.
Interestingly, the site doesn't seem to believe HBO would actually give us a different result as it still gives Bran "the Broken" Stark the best odds to control the seven (six?) kingdoms at the end of this next season that's probably never going to happen.
