‘Game Of Thrones’ Will Be One Season Longer Than Originally Planned.

HBO’s most-watched series, the medieval fantasy drama Game of Thrones, will likely continue through three more seasons, said a network executive, as he defended the show’s gritty violence. “The sixth season is currently being filmed. Beverly Hills: HBO would like a third season of True Detective, despite criticism over Season 2 starring Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. “I think Nic [Pizzolatto] is one of the best writers working in television and motion pictures today.

“I’m always hoping they’re going to change their minds, but I think that’s what we’re looking at right now,” Lombardo said at the Television Critics Association meeting.At least, that’s according to HBO executive Michael Lombardino, who asserted this week that the “GoT” protagonist is — yes, that’s right — 100 percent not alive. “Dead is dead is dead.

Executives have planned to run at least seven seasons and are discussing with the show’s creators how much longer the show will extend beyond that”, said Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming. Actor Kit Harrington, who plays Jon Snow was recently spotted in Belfast, where is shot, adding to speculation he will be appearing in the new season some way or another. “Three weeks ago, I was the in the company of the President of the United States. Lombardo, noting that the drama has included violence as a thread since it started, said the producers were careful about not overstepping boundaries while remaining true to the storytelling.

Lombardo said he’d like to have more beyond that and would also be open to a prequel to the story of the epic battle for the Iron Throne in the fictional kingdom of Westeros, based on George R.R. That despite detractors who say Season 2 is hard to follow and the characters lack the chemistry of the first season’s stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. He turned to me, put his hand on my shoulder, and said, ‘You didn’t kill Jon Snow did you?’” Nutter told Entertainment Weekly. “I said, ‘Jon Snow is deader than dead.’ I thought I was going to be sent to Guantanamo or something, but fortunately I’m here — but he’s dead,” he said of his meeting with Obama. Earlier, the show was predicted to have seven seasons, but HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo said while addressed critics during the 2015 Summer TCA press tour, that “seven seasons and out” had never been the conversation,” E! The episode ended with the lord commander of the Night’s Watch laid out on his back looking very dead, what with the blank, wide-eyed stare and the pool of blood rapidly blooming around him.

It’s not an, ‘Oh what just happened scene?’” Despite these crystal clear pronouncements of Snow’s indubitable demise, fans haven’t been able to stop themselves from speculating about how the character might still make a comeback. “There are some who won’t believe, because maybe Jon Snow could come back as, I dunno, a White Walker, or an abominable snowman or a cloud shaped like a rabbit. Actor Kit Harington has insisted that he won’t be back, but theories have sprouted up like weeds explaining how Jon might return sometime in the future. He also said marketing has become more challenging amid an explosion of critically acclaimed shows. “Viewers of HBO, a unit of Time Warner Inc, routinely tune in Sunday nights, but other days are less certain,” he said. “I worry about that all the time,” he added. “Particularly with a digital platform and on-demand where things are available, I think quality will ultimately win out.”

Weiss in on some of the more juicy details of the story and its conclusion, which will allow the televised narrative to “eventually, basically, meet up at pretty much the same place“ as the books. With two books left to be released – including “Winds of Winter” – Benioff and Weiss have always talked about ending the series at seven seasons, in spite of HBO’s obvious reluctance to let its flagship show slip away so soon. Betty White, a passionate animal activist, has harsh words for the Minnesota dentist who killed Cecil the lion while on a hunting trip in Zimbabwe this month. “It’s such a heartbreaker. We’ve all learned from the very best TV detectives how to solve a mystery, but we’ve also made a hobby of beating Jessica Fletcher/Columbo/Gil Grissom/Velma to the punch. Never mind the fact that David and Dan have in fact said that seven seasons would be the case, this seems to indicate that HBO has convinced the producers to keep doing what they’re doing for at least another season, with the hopes that they might do even more.

Seeing through the red herrings and deciphering the identity of the villain minutes ahead of the hero feels like a win — even if the only prize is smug self-satisfaction. White, who said she’s “loved animals since the womb,” was promoting a new block of programming in August on Discovery Family Channel called “Pawgust,” with shows, specials and movies about animals. It’s also cable’s second highest-rated TV show behind The Walking Dead, which is really impressive when you consider HBO is premium and AMC is not. Figuring out the truth is all the more tantalizing when producers are so hell-bent on secrecy. (And they would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for you kids.) But while it might feel great to tease out the solution, you’re also draining drama from future episodes. “Mad Men” fans, for example, couldn’t be content to just enjoy the mysteries of Don Draper’s past — they were obsessed with predicting his character’s trajectory.

Greg Louganis said he was unaware of fellow Olympian Bruce Jenner’s gender identity struggle when their paths crossed at the Summer 1976 Games and in later years. This led to countless blog-hours spent analyzing costume clues to form a grand conspiracy theory that Megan Draper was destined to meet the Manson Family (she did not) or an even more brilliant and impeccably argued hypothesis that Don would turn out to be famed plane hijacker D.B. The diving great, among the first prominent athletes to come out as gay, said Thursday he has yet to speak with the now-Caitlyn Jenner but can appreciate what she’s going through. “We all have our journeys. The response to Jenner’s candor, including her own reality series and an ESPY award for courage, contrasts sharply with Louganis’ experience before and after disclosing his orientation in 1992 and, in 1995, that he was HIV-positive.

He became the only man in diving history to win back-to-back Olympic gold medals in both springboard and platform diving, in 1984 and ’88, but found that opportunities available to other Olympic stars eluded him. If that picture seems like a primo scoop, it had nothing on the Snapchat that Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe sent of herself in bed with winning contestant Shawn Booth weeks before the season finale. Aside from her personal connection to the series, which is her relationship with cast member Wilmer Valderrama, Rodriguez said, “I’ve always been a big fan of hers and she’s on tour a lot, so when she’d come to set to visit I threw out that we’d love to put her in somewhere.” It’s been six years since HBO first announced that “Sopranos” creator David Chase has a new project in the works, and according to the network’s programming chief, it’s still happening. “I think he has something really unbelievable, but he had to figure out is it a limited series, an open-ended series? I fully expect we’ll be back up here during my tenure with David Chase and a new show.” “I’ve known Terry for a lot of years, and my dad helped train him in Florida in the ’70s when he was breaking into the business.

I think there’s a very delicate balance to not ending the story too soon (i.e., rushing things) and not extending it unnecessarily (i.e., drawing things out for $$), especially with a show as complicated as Game of Thrones.The longer the story goes, the more complicated it gets, and the more likely it is to fall apart. Unless Martin publishes “The Winds of Winter” before next season airs, there won’t be many more opportunities for purists to shake their heads and sniff, “That’s not what happens in the books.” If book enthusiasts can just manage to game out what happens to Jon, though, they can keep their in-the-know status. Like “Thrones,” the show deviates from its source material, but that doesn’t stop readers from trading insights into which beloved characters will get killed off next. Fans of the books have until season six premieres in October to speculate about the terrifying character who will show up next and what actor will be cast.

Between seasons, the urge was high to go digging for clues from the Hawaiian filming locations, and if that meant finding out about an attack by The Others long before it happened onscreen, so be it.
