'Game of Thrones' Spin-Off Will Premiere 'At Least a Year' After Series Finale

'Game of Thrones' Spin-Off Will Premiere 'At Least a Year' After Series Finale

Attention, Game of Thrones fans! We have some new details about the highly anticipated spin-off series.

HBO chief Casey Bloys announced at the Television Critics Association’s press tour on Wednesday (July 26) that the network won’t be launching any of the spin-offs until at least a year after the final season ends. (via THR)

“The No. 1 priority in all of this is the final season of Game of Thrones,” Casey said. “I don’t want to do anything with a spin-off or anything that detracts or distracts from that.”

“That season will happen, and my guess is it would be at least a year before you saw anything else,” he added. “What I don’t want is the attention to be drawn from the final season, which I think is going to be epic and amazing and somehow have the distraction of a new Game of Thrones airing right after that. It’s best to separate it and that’s what we’ll do.”

If you didn’t know, HBO and GOT author George R.R. Martin are currently working on five prequel spin-offs. Current characters from the hit series will not be featured.

Season eight of Game of Thrones is set to premiere in 2018.

“Dear followers, it is time to finally set the record straight in this moustache fiasco. Pictured above, is not a set on MI6 but is in fact the latest in a series of weapons being designed by Warner Bros and Paramount Studios to combat the entity known as “Henry Cavill’s Moustache”. There has been no discussion over whether to shave or not to shave for the JL reshoots, simply a relentless campaign to put an end to the seemingly inexorable conquest of this despotic ‘stache. It is not a question of IF I should shave – it is a question of how can we possibly be victorious against such a beast without bringing our own doom raining down upon us,” Henry captioned the below photo.

Tia Mowry Addresses Charlize Theron SoulCycle Drama

Tia Mowry is opening up about that time Charlize Theron allegedly dissed her in a SoulCycle class.

According to In Touch, the 39-year-old Sister, Sister star didn’t have a great experience running into the 41-year-old Atomic Blonde actress during a workout session back in 2014.

“She wasn’t very nice to me,” Tia reportedly told the magazine. “I said, ‘Hi,’ and she actually rolled her eyes and said, ‘Oh, my God.’ I wasn’t over-the-top. I know how to approach another celebrity. Charlize was just mean. I’m just being honest.”

When recently asked about the drama on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, Charlize denied it.

“Oh you can’t go by that, right?” she said. “I’m really nice at SoulCycle, actually, because once my endorphins kick in, I’m actually almost too friendly.”

“The only thing I have to say about that is I don’t know Charlize,” Tia added while speaking to E! News. “It was all blown out of proportion. I respect her. I think she’s amazing.”
