Dry your tears, ‘Game of Thrones’ fans! There may be more GoT coming after the show ends! HBO boss Casey Bloys teased that there could be a GoT spinoff after the show ends for good with season 8! So what’s this spinoff about?
HBO’s President of Programming, Casey Bloys, broke Game of Thrones fans’ hearts in July 30 by officially confirming that the show is indeed ending after season 8, and then promptly mended them with some major news: some of your fave GoT characters could be coming back for their own show. Casey played it coy and didn’t actually say who would be starring in the new spinoff; guess that really depends on who survives the next two seasons, doesn’t it?
Please don’t get our hopes up about this one, HBO! We’re still freaking out about the news that season 8 is the end. Sure, our Sunday nights are going to get a lot less stressful and anxious, but we’re not happy about it! Casey revealed during the same panel at the summer Television Critics Association press tour that the GoT creators were mulling over a potential spinoff. The only problem? They’re just a little busy making two more seasons of the show first!
“We’ve talked about it. It’s something I’m not opposed to, but of course, it has to make sense creatively,” Casey said. “I’m not sure that the guys can wrap their heads around when they’re just about to start production — it’s a pretty intense production — but I’m open to it,” he continued. “The guys weren’t opposed to it, but there are no concrete plans or anything like that at this point.”
Until then, let’s look forward to what season 7 is bringing! Sophie Turner dished about the upcoming season during the GoT panel at SDCC on July 22, and said that she thinks Sansa and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) should be King and Queen of the North!
