Game of Thrones Might Get Eight Seasons and a Prequel Series.

HBO programming chief Michael Lombardo said Thursday that the producers of the drama series are leaning toward three more seasons after they just concluded season five. On Thursday, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo surprised Game of Thrones fans by announcing that the channel’s premiere series could very well extend to eight seasons, and possibly beyond. “Seven-seasons-and-out has never been the [internal] conversation,” Lombardo told critics at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Thursday, in spite of the fact that HBO has held firm to the seven seasons number with press. “The question is: how much beyond seven are we going to do? Obviously we’re shooting six now, hopefully discussing seven. [Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] feel like there’s two more years after six.

I would always love for them to change their minds.” “I would be open to anything Dan and David want to do,” Lombardo said. “It really would depend fully on what they want to do…. I’d love to do another season with him.” “Here’s what I think, I think Nic Pizzolatto is one of the best writers working in television and motion pictures today,” Lombardo said. “He takes a big swing and all I can tell you is I think the show ending is as satisfying as any show I’ve seen.” We haven’t had any conversations.” But one aspect of the “Game of Thrones” world was not up for much debate: whether hero Jon Snow — who appeared to be fatally stabbed in the Season 5 finale, which aired in June — is really dead. (Viewers’ hopes and dreams for Snow’s return may not yet be dead – other characters who have died on “Game of Thrones” have been resurrected in one form or another.) Sister-network Cinemax’s “The Knick” will encore its first season on digital platforms HBO Now, HBO Go and HBO On Demand for 10 weeks starting Aug. 14 and a marathon of the first season will play on HBO2 starting at noon Oct. 10. When HBO’s president of programming Michael Lombardo addressed critics during the 2015 Summer TCA press tour, he was immediately asked about when the highly popular fantasy series might come to an end, especially since the show has now caught up to George R.R.

The HBO president, an apparent pessimist, maintained that our beloved character is really gone. “Dead is dead is dead,” he said, crushing our very dreams and conspiracy theories. “He be dead. Other series for 2016 include “Vinyl,” a 1970s rock drama from Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger, and “Westworld,” inspired by the 1973 film of the same name. “It’s very much told from the point of view of the robots and the corporate world is as dimensional as the [theme] park but visitors to the park are not the primary focus of our show,” Mr. Everything I’ve seen heard and read, Jon Snow is indeed dead.” Hmmm, well then why is actor Kit Harington still hanging out with the show’s cast in Belfast while the series is busy making the next season? Lombardo said. “I think he wants to have something to say. … I certainly see this as a continuing dialogue with him – a long one, but a continuing one.” Someday Mr.

I think there are no two showrunners who are more careful to not overstep what they think the line is, doing things that are critical for the storytelling. Chase’s next series, “A Ribbon of Dreams,” about the early Hollywood film industry, but so far nothing has been filmed. “I think it’s really challenging to come back to television after a show like ‘The Sopranos,’” Mr.
