HBO President Defends 'Game of Thrones' Delay to 2019

Game of Thrones fans erupted in a chorus of "Shame!" earlier this month when it was confirmed that the series' eighth and final season will not air until 2019.

But HBO boss Casey Bloys recently told Entertainment Weekly that the reason for the delay - and it turns out it's all down to show runners David Benioff and Dan Weiss.

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.

On whether the endless speculation over the show bothers him, Bloys added: "I don't mind!" "It was based on when they felt that they could deliver a show that they are most proud of".

We first heard about the five Game of Thrones prequel spinoffs currently in development at HBO in May past year, and now the cable network has just revealed some intriguing news about the project. Though probably more likely one.

"We know we have six episodes - we are not sure whether they will run for 70 minutes or even 90 minutes", the actor said, The Sun reports. Not everybody is on the same schedule, so I've seen different versions of different things that are potentially exciting. "I want the final season of Game of Thrones to be the final season of Game Of Thrones, 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".

The duo wanted as much time as they could to make the strongest - and most epic - episodes that they possibly could.

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. "We have some really talented writers working on them". "It's quite a sudden shift, I guess, but it feels like the right time".
