Programming President of HBO Casey Bloys had recently shared a few updates on Game of Thrones, Veep and Deadwood.
The Game of Thrones prequels are pushed back to two years later than its expected release date which is sometime this year. Bloys tells the press that the prequels will premiere for “at least a year after the final season.” The ultimate season of Game of Thrones does not come on TV until 2019, therefore, pushing the five potential spin-off shows into a year or so later.
Bloys says that this decision is based on his desire to not devalue the major achievements that the original series have had achieved through the years. He also looks at the final season as one of the biggest events in TV season that airing a spinoff series right after it might cheapen the finale.
Talking about the prequels, the HBO boss reveals that each five of the potential projects will have different schedules.
“They didn’t start at the same startlines, so we’re at different stages, but I’m very encouraged by what we’ve seen. I don’t have a timetable when we’re going to make decision on anything. I could make between zero and five. Probably more likely around one.”
