HBO clarifies 'Game of Thrones' prequel plan, might push final season to 2019

“I want to put the prequels in context,” Bloys began. “It should go without saying I love having a show with this much intense interest around it. Even the smallest bit of information is a big deal and I appreciate that. But I wanted to make sure fans know this is a really embryonic process. I haven’t even seen outlines. In the press at large, everybody said, ‘there are four spinoffs’ and they assume that means each one is happening and we’re going to have a new Game of Thrones show per quarter. That’s not what’s going on. The idea is not to do four shows. The bar set by [Benioff and Weiss] is so high that my hope is to get one show that lives up to it. Also, this is a long-term plan. Our No. 1 goal is the seventh season this summer and getting the eighth season written and aired.”

So as of now, the final season could air in 2018 and/or in 2019 depending on their needs?
Yeah. They have to write the episodes and figure out the production schedule. We’ll have a better sense of that once they get further into the writing.

2019?! They use to do 10 episodes a year, they can't do 6 now without pushing everything back?

Season 8 may be the longest season ever even with only 6 episodes.

That's pretty insane actually. Who do they think they are, the BBC?

I have to believe this is one show that is spoiler proof... with all the leaks... did it hurt viewership? This show keeps getting bigger and bigger.

This is the most non-news news story ever. We all knew this!

I don't think it was ever confirmed before now, just rumored.

Return to “Game of Thrones”
