It's fair to say that Game of Thrones is going to go down in history as one of the best shows ever made. This is why it's fairly surprising to hear HBO programming president Casey Bloys claim that there is no plan to revive the series after next year's final seasons. While prequel projects are being worked on, direct spinoffs from the main show won't be happening at all.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Bloys stated that we wouldn't see any of the prequel shows until a year after the final season, so basically 2020 and beyond. Bloys has claimed to see exciting material for these prequel shows but went on to say that there is no definitive timetable for them. Apparently, it's a way to show some respect for the GoT final season.

After these prequels, it seems like the company will be done with the franchise, which is a huge surprise considering how franchise-centric major Hollywood studios have been lately. Here is the full statement from Bloys:

"That's not happening. This story, A Song of Fire and Ice, is done. There's no revival, reboot, spinoff talk."

Game of Thrones season 8 will consist of six episodes, shorter than all previous seasons. It is slated for a 2019 release.
