HBO's First Game of Thrones Spinoff Won't Air Until At Least 2020

The head of HBO has discussed the possibility of there being a Game Of Thrones revival in the years to come. Find out everything we know about season 8 here.

He also gave an update on the five Game of Thrones prequels which are now being worked on at HBO. While there's still no word on what story a new show will explore (we have some ideas!), or how numerous ideas under consideration will make it to the screen, he did reveal when any of them would air. While George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series has been a cult hit since it debuted in the '90s, few could have imagined that HBO's adaptation would make the author a household name and see each new season eclipse the previous one in ratings. We're not using the final season to launch a new show or anything like that.

"What I don't want to do is detract from the final season", Bloys explained. "These are among the best writers working and I'm hopeful".

As for how many GOT prequel series HBO may go with, "anywhere form zero to five but probably more likely around one", Bloys said. "We ave some really talented writers working on them". We're not doing a final season and then, 'Following it at 11pm...' I've seen some exciting material. But there's no timetable.

The duo wanted as much time as they could to make the strongest - and most epic - episodes that they possibly could.

"Game of Thrones is coming to a very quick end, which I'm feeling emotional about", he said. "It's quite a sudden shift, I guess, but it feels like the right time".

"We know we have six episodes-we are not sure whether they will run for 70 minutes or even 90 minutes", says Harington. Though the idea of it being canceled seemed ridiculous considering big wigs Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman not only acted in the project but are also producers of the series.
