Bloys stated it’s most likely that after the last season airs “it would be at least a year prior to you saw anything else.”
The spinoffs being dealt with do not presently include any existing characters from “Game of Thrones,” Bloys stated.

The last and 8th season has actually been composed and being planned by developers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
It is unclear if the Season 8 best will be pressed to fall 2018 or later on.

“Two hours per episode looks like it would be extreme, however it’s a fantastic program so who understands,” he stated.
