Game of Thrones won't have a spin-off show, declares HBO boss

At the time filming is done, maybe we can talk at that point about getting a chance to see an official trailer or getting some other good stuff out there when it comes to the show. Not only did Bloys update the progress on Games of Thrones' final season, he teased the potential spinoffs in the works, plus gave news on True Detective Season 3 and the Deadwood reunion movie. The HBO show came off a highly anticipated and celebrated first season in 2017 that starred a insane cast of A-listers: Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley. Why do we have to wait that long? However, they are promised to be longer and bigger in terms of battle scenes and special effects, which obviously take plenty of time to ideal.

Now, Bloys has revealed the reasoning behind the delay: the showrunners want to take their time in creating the biggest, most visually-spectacular episodes to date. Here's the one thing I can assure you: [showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff] were not sitting around on a beach waiting to go back to work.

Deadline asked Bloys about this as well. "I've read the script, it's unbelievable", Bloys told journalists. After all, Game of Thrones has been a massive success for HBO. "It's simply a matter of them taking the time they need to execute at the level they feel the fans deserve". According to Bloys, there are five different possible prequel projects to choose from. "The fans are going to be very, very happy".

HBO actually hired five different writing teams - including a couple of those with "Game of Thrones" creator George R.R. Martin - to develop different spinoff ideas based on the vast history of Westeros before the current events on "Game of Thrones" took place.

If we do a pilot and series, nothing is going to air on HBO until at least a year after the final season. We're not doing a final season and then, "Following it at 11 p.m".
