'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.
