HBO Exec Says an Arya Stark Sequel Series Is Not Happening

HBO’s programming president Casey Bloys has delivered some sad news for fans of Game of Thrones character Arya Stark, played by Maisie Williams.

As fans who watched the series finale of the HBO series know, Arya sails off at the end of the show to explore what is west of Westeros.

So, will we get to find out what Arya is up to in a sequel series?

“Nope, nope, nope. No. Part of it is, I do want this show — this Game of Thrones, Dan and David’s show — to be its own thing. I don’t want to take characters from this world that they did beautifully and put them off into another world with someone else creating it. I want to let it be the artistic piece they’ve got,” Casey told THR.

“That’s one of reasons why I’m not trying to do the same show over. George has massive, massive world; there are so many ways in. That’s why we’re trying to do things that feel distinct — and to not try and re-do the same show. That’s probably one of the reasons why, right now, a sequel or picking up any of the other characters doesn’t make sense for us,” he added.
