HBO Boss Talks Timetable For 'Game Of Thrones' Prequels & 'Confederate' Series

When the season eight finale of "Game of Thrones" finally airs sometime in 2019 it will be the end for the widely popular.

"There is not going to be anything in any scenario where we have any sort of prequel air for at least a year after that", HBO president Casey Bloys told Deadline at TCA.

We also know that the final series will contain more CGI than has previously been seen, hinting that there will be a lot more screen times for Daenerys' dragons.

It looks like the first of 5 proposed Game of Thrones spinoffs won't be arriving until 2020 at the earliest. Season 1 actor Jason Momoa, who recently visited the set, assures us season 8 will be "the greatest thing to ever air on TV".

"What I don't want to do is detract from the final season", Bloys explained.

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).


He also gave an update on the five Game of Thrones prequels which are now being worked on at HBO.

As for how many GOT prequel series HBO may go with, "anywhere form zero to five but probably more likely around one", Bloys said. Not everybody is on the same schedule, so I've seen different versions of different things that are potentially exciting. "We ave some really talented writers working on them".

The long winter is here, and by that we mean the agonizing wait between Seasons 7 and 8 of Game of Thrones. I don't have a timetable when we're going to make decisions on anything.

"We know we have six episodes-we are not sure whether they will run for 70 minutes or even 90 minutes", says Harington. I don't want to cheapen it with a spinoff airing right after 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.
