While five “Game of Thrones” spin-off projects are under development, HBO’s programming director Casey Bloys has revealed that only one of them is expected to be released.
If George RR Martin confirmed a few weeks ago the development of five spin-off projects in the Game of Thrones universe , it seems unlikely that all of these projects will see the light of day on HBO.
Questioned by our colleagues of Entertainment Weekly , the director of the programming of the cable channel Casey Bloys certainly admitted the existence of these projects, while specifying that only the best idea would be retained: “When the press announces four spin-off , Everyone thinks that these series will be released and that there will be a new Game of Thrones aired every quarter, but that is not what will happen.The idea is not to do four series . David Benioff and Dan Weiss have set the bar high, so I hope to find a concept that is on the same level. But for the moment we are concentrating our efforts on season 7 and then on writing and filming the eighth. “
With a season 8 that may not be broadcast before 2019, this famous spin-off of Game of Thrones should not end before 2020, at best. Only certainty: the action of this new series will take place before the events of the Iron Throne, with new characters.
Fans of Game of Thrones still have two seasons to follow before the final stop of Game of Thrones, starting with the seventh as of July 16th on HBO (and US + 24 on OCS City).
