HBO chief gives updates on Game of Thrones finale, prequel premiere

Deadwood TV Movie Is Officially Happening | News | Movies

HBO says it's greenlighted a long-discussed movie based on the Western drama that ended a dozen years ago. The series, created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, frustrated some fans at the end of its second season due to overlapping narratives that many viewers found impossible to make sense of and/or follow.

GAME OF THRONES Season 8 is expected to debut during the first half of 2019.

"When the Franco issue came up" Bloys said, they read the Los Angeles Times article, and talked to producers and show cast, among others, before reaching its decision.

Ben Sasse , R-Neb., agreed, calling the aid "trade-war bailouts". "And President Trump is the first one to call them on that". He noted that countries "that have treated us unfairly on trade for years" are coming to Washington to negotiate.

Bloys doesn't seem too anxious about "Westworld", most likely because the series earned 21 Emmy nominations this year, including best drama series. Last summer, HBO began developing multiple possibilities for a spin-off show in order to piggyback off of Thrones' unprecedented success, and now we know that four of those efforts have been scrapped altogether.

Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin worked with Goldman on the project, but she will serve as showrunner.

Game of Thrones will return for its eighth and final season in the earlier half of 2019, HBO President Casey Bloys confirmed on Wednesday at the Television Critics Association press tour. So far, the upcoming prequel series is being described as "the world's descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. No one is asking us to take pitches of a Love Boat reboot". He also noted that "three more Game of Thrones prequels, set in different periods and featuring different characters and storylines, remain in active development". Bloys said that isn't going to be the case, but hopes that the new show will go into production in early 2019.
