HBO Boss Defends Decision to Air Final Season in 2019

HBO Boss Defends Decision to Air Final Season in 2019

Game of Thrones season eight will be the HBO show's final and, unfortunately for fans, won't air until 2019.

Speaking to TVLine, HBO Programming chief Casey Bloys confirmed the spinoffs will feature new characters, but before fans get too disappointed, he was also quick to point out "there may be [familiar] bloodlines" in the upcoming series. We don't want to use it launch [a new series]. Now, however, we know that season 8 won't come until 2019 which pushing back the earliest possible start date for the spinoff.

"We know we have six episodes-we are not sure whether they will run for 70 minutes or even 90 minutes", says Harington.

On whether the endless speculation over the show bothers him, Bloys added: "I don't mind! These are among the best writers working and I'm hopeful". 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. "Probably more likely around one". Bloys also talked about the upcoming five "Game of Thrones" prequels, which are now in development on the network.

He told TV Line that there are some things that are "potentially very exciting". But after HBO greenlit a new season set in the Ozarks last fall (and cast Mahershala Ali, Stephen Dorff, and Carmen Ejogo), there was some hope that maybe we'd get the new season in 2018. We have really great writers working on these; it's very exciting. "But there's no timetable about when a decision would be made about any of them". "Thrones is coming to the end at the right time for me, and everyone involved in it".

A honest apology to everyone who enjoyed HBO's journey to Monterey, California, a year ago in Big Little Lies-because the drama's second season will not be airing anytime soon.
