“Game of Thrones” (Game of Thrones), undoubtedly, is the main hit of HBO for the last ten years. In the past, a similar cult status among viewers around the world was received by another project of the television channel – “Sex and the City”. The president of HBO programming, Casey Blois, said when the final season of “The Game of Thrones” will appear on the air and what will be shown on the channel when the series ends.
When asked by journalists, Blois answered that the output is expected in the first half of 2019. Usually the premiere was scheduled for April or March, it lasted for many years. But in the case of the seventh season, shooting which was delayed due to weather conditions in one of the locations, the output was postponed to July.
At the moment, the finals are finished, the actors had fun at a big party on the occasion of the last season, and the studio went on postproduction. Usually graphics and creating special effects take a lot of time, so in what month HBO will finish work on the series, while it remains unknown.
In addition to pressing questions about the final “Games of Thrones”, Blois also talked about the upcoming creation of a spin-off, the scenario for which is already ready. Initially, the studio had five scripts of pilot series from different authors, as a result they chose one that was written by Jane Goldman. She previously worked on projects such as “Kingsman: The Secret Service” and “X-Men: First Class.”
When I say that we are hoping to start production of the new series in 2019, I also mean that we need to first find a director, which means that we have to arrange a casting,
“Casey Blois told the interview.
Bloys also talked about what series on the air we will see after the “Game of Thrones”. So, “The real detective”, which according to the idea of the writers in each season tells stories that are not related, will introduce new actors in the lead roles. Oscar winner for best supporting actress Majershala Ali will play detective Wayne Hayes from Arkansas, and the role of his partner Roland West will be performed by actor Stephen Dorff.
Continuation of the series for three years was questionable, and the project was frozen due to the fact that the ratings of the second season with Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams were very bad, as well as the critics’ reviews. But the channel gave the project a green light, and it was returned to development.
Next year, the producer project Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman will return to the channel – “Big little lie,” which last year collected four “Golden Globes” and the same number of Emmy figurines. In the new season the town of Montreuil will reveal even more terrible secrets of its inhabitants, and in the cast of actors there will be a replenishment – Meryl Streep will appear in the role of mother-in-law of the heroine Nicole Kidman.
