When Season Eight Of 'Game Of Thrones' Ends, It's All Over

The HBO programming president also notes that any 'Thrones' spinoff to move forward wouldn't air until at least 2020

This week, HBO's President of Programming Casey Bloys spoke to The Hollywood Reporter at the Television Critics Association in Pasedena, and he confirmed they are still developing the five potential prequel spin-off ideas we told you about in May.

Bloys also shared an update on the Game Of Thrones spinoff series, and said the earliest it would air would be one year after Game of Thrones' series finale, around 2020.

But for those who can't get enough of Westeros and its inhabitants, there are a five spin-offs in the works.

After recently confirming that Game of Thrones won't return for its eighth and final season until 2019, HBO has now dashed fans' hopes of getting a prequel series in the meantime. This, according to Bloys, is set to "explore different time periods of [George R R Martin]'s vast and rich universe". What is HBO going to do?!' past year, that was it-we were going to die at the Emmys without Game of Thrones. We don't want to use it to launch [a new series]. "We'll take as much or as little time as the writers need and, as with all our development, we will evaluate what we have when the scripts are in". "We want some separation there".


Game of Thrones' final season is setting up to be of epic proportions.

While the HBO series premiered on February 19th of past year and ended in April, the network has been tight-lipped about when the second season of the series would be announced, or if it was even happening at all.

There has been speculation about what any new series could be about but there are a few topics which will not be making an appearance. George R.R. Martin is also said to be attached to the projects in some capacity.

The writers include Mad Men's Carly Wray, Kong: Skull Island's Max Borenstein and Jane Goldman, who worked on X-Men: First Class. Season 1 actor Jason Momoa, who recently visited the set, assures us season 8 will be "the greatest thing to ever air on TV".
