HBO President Defends 'Game of Thrones' Delay to 2019

Network executives explain it's the price we have to pay for increasingly cinematic storytelling. "I don't think it's optimal, but it beats changing the showrunner and having it suck". But none of those series bring in even close to the viewership numbers that HBO enjoys with Game of Thrones, and the return of Big Little Lies or True Detective would have helped soften that blow.

Among some of the writers already confirmed to work on the project are Max Borenstein (Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island) and Jane Goldman (X-Men, Kick-Ass).

The trend started with Netflix deliberately breaking the annual cycle in a big way by spreading out seasons its Marvel shows like Jessica Jones and Daredevil.

As the final season of Game of Thrones isn't set to air until 2019, the spin-offs will presumably arrive in 2020 or later.

"They're moving along", he told Entertainment Weekly of the five potential successor shows.

"There are five of them", HBO Programming president Casey Bloys told The Hollywood Reporter. Find out everything we know about season 8 here. Former star Jason Momoa recently promised it is "going to be the greatest thing that's ever aired on TV".

We don't know yet when exactly Game of Thrones will premiere in 2019 (until season seven's summer release, the show normally aired in spring), so we are likely more than two years away from a spin-off. Nope. Bloys tells us that with production starting in February the drama won't be ready until next year. He went on saying, "These things take time". That's as big of a mystery as who gave Will Byers that terrible haircut.

He continued: "I was exchanging emails with [showrunners] David [Benioff] Dan [Weiss] last night and we were all getting very soppy and emotional with each other".

HBO originally intended its 2017 limited series based on Liane Moriarty's bestseller to be just that - limited. 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. The Golden Globes showered the title with more trophies on Sunday.
