'Game of Thrones': HBO President Reveals the Earliest We'll See Those Spinoffs

HBO President Says 'Watchmen' Pilot May Begin Shooting In 2018 'Game of Thrones': HBO President Reveals the Earliest We'll See Those Spinoffs

Find out everything we know about season 8 here. Though probably more likely one. As we detailed previously, the final season of Game of Thrones will only feature six episodes, though there are rumblings that each episode may be as long as a full length movie, which is to say somewhere in the hour and a half range. It seems time is a flat circle that will take at least another year to come back around.

The fantasy drama, starring Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke, is smash hit, so it's not surprising that they want to do as much as possible with it.

"They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality", Bloys elaborated when speaking with Entertainment Weekly. As for how many prequels HBO will make, Bloys put it at "anywhere from zero to five!". It's a hard work to adapt considering many believe it to be the greatest comic book series of all time - just look at the divided reaction to Zack Snyder's 2009 film version - but Lindelof seems very up for the challenge. Indeed, we learned a while ago that HBO had begun work developing five separate Game of Thrones spinoff shows, some of which are prequels, some of which are spinoffs, and some of which are based directly on material from author George R.R. Martin. "I have seen some things that I think are potentially very exciting". "I don't want to use it to launch something else, I want it to stand as the finale of the greatest tv show of all time, I don't want to do anything that infringes on that". But there's no timetable about when a decision would be made about any of them.

HBO also announced the third season of their anthology series True Detective will not make it to air until next year either. This may be the end of A Song of Ice and Fire, but the Game of Thrones universe is set to continue with at least one spinoff series.
