With just two episodes to go until the conclusion of 'Game of Thrones' season 7, fans who have stuck with the critically-acclaimed fantasy HBO series know that the next season will be the last, consisting of just six episodes and wrapping up the series for good.

Based on the incomplete 'A Song of Ice & Fire' novel series by George R R Martin, 'Game of Thrones' has managed to impress since its initial debut all the way back in 2011, delivering a stellar bunch of twists and turns that have left millions of jaws on the floor.

That all looks set to continue, and whilst leaks have been extremely prominent during the current season, the episodes have still done some brilliant official numbers, breaking previous records as each week rolls by.

Though there will of course be those disappointed with the series coming to an end, actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on the show, thinks that it's a good decision from the creators.

Speaking with Collider, Coster-Waldau explained what he'll miss when the show's over, but why he thinks it's the best direction 'GoT' can go in: "Of course, the people I work with. When you’ve spent so many years working together, you make friends. I’m going to miss that. We’ve been going to Belfast every year, and there are great people there. At the same time, I think it’s a good thing we’re ending. The story is coming to an end, which is very satisfying. I’m sure HBO would have loved to have done another few seasons, but I really respect Dan [Weiss] and David [Benioff], the writers, for saying, “No, this is it. This is how long it’s going to be.” I’m going to miss the people and I’m going to miss that annual journey to Belfast, but at the same time, it’s going to be nice to go on and do something else."

It's certainly going to be interesting to see how everything is wrapped up in the next eight episodes; there's still a lot to happen, with not a lot of time to get it done, so some major action sequences are expected.

When all is said and done however, that doesn't mean the 'GoT' universe is going to disappear entirely. Right now, a number of spin-offs are being worked on for HBO to fill the void that will be left. Whether or not they impress fans however remains to be seen.
