Time to play the waiting Game.
Season 7 of Game of Thrones was already delayed this year so production could get colder weather to film in. Thats been tough enough. Now it turns out the wait for the final season may be even longer.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, HBO programming president Casey Bloys conceded that Season 8, which is onlysix episodeslong, may not air until 2019 if showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss need that amount of time.
Yeah. They have to write the episodes and figure out the production schedule, Bloys said. Well have a better sense of that once they get further into the writing,
Also, if youre looking forward to those Game of Thrones spinoffs, you might want to sit down for this.
Bloys first said forget all that nonsense about there being four different spinoffs. Theres likely just going to be one. But even that isnt the focus right now. HBO just wants to send off the show in the right way.
Youre not going to see a situation where the next show in the Thrones universe launches off the back of this one, he added.
OK, now for the good news: The delay should be worth it.
In a March interview,Kit Harington, the King in the North himself, told HuffPost that the final two seasons of Game of Thrones will break boundaries.
(Perhaps one of those boundaries is a certain giant wall thats theorized to be coming down?)
Bloys also hyped up Season 7 to EW, saying, I dont want to oversell, but I cant imagine anybody being disappointed in this season. Its amazing.
Get ready, everyone. The final two seasons arent going to be spokes on a wheel. Theyre going to break the wheel!
