HBO Responds to #NoConfederate Campaign During 'Game of Thrones'

During Sunday (July 30)’s episode on Game of Thrones, fans may have noticed that the hashtag #NoConfederate was trending throughout the entire night.

So why was it trending?

Outspoken activist April Reign created the hashtag as a response to GoT creators’ upcoming new show, Confederate.

The upcoming drama from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss “chronicles the events leading to the Third American Civil War and takes place in an alternate timeline where the Southern states have successfully seceded from the Union, giving rise to a nation in which slavery remains legal and has evolved into a modern institution,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“We have great respect for the dialogue and concern being expressed around Confederate. We have faith that [writers] Nichelle, Dan, David and Malcolm will approach the subject with care and sensitivity. The project is currently in its infancy so we hope that people will reserve judgment until there is something to see,” HBO said in a statement released on Sunday night.

April also started the #OscarsSoWhite campaign back in 2016.

'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.

'Game of Thrones' Director Defends Ed Sheeran's Cameo

The director of the Game of Thrones premiere, Jeremy Podeswa, is defending Ed Sheeran for his cameo after Twitter was polarized over his appearance during the episode.

“I’m a bit surprised that people have made that much fuss about it. To me, he does seem quite organic, in his own way, to the show,” Jeremy told Daily Beast.

“The truth is, everybody on the show is famous now. So it doesn’t mean anything to me. It’s about, are they appropriate for the role? Are they doing a good job? And it was yes, yes, yes to all those questions with him,” Jeremy continued, adding Ed was “delightful” to direct. Ed deleted his Twitter account hours after his cameo aired.

“He is a lovely person; he’s really down-to-earth. If you didn’t know that he was a pop star or an entertainer of any kind, you would think he’s just one of the guys. And he is. He really just wanted to do a great job. He’s been acting for a little while; he takes it very seriously. And he was a real trouper, too. We were shooting in the middle of nowhere in Northern Ireland. He sat around outside with the cast and crew all day long, and just kind of hung out and was good-humored and lovely. He took direction well. He really could not have been nicer,” Jeremy continued.

“It is a funny thing because I really, genuinely believe that if you didn’t know who he was, you would have just thought he was one of the gang, effortlessly,” he concluded.
