Will there ever be a 'Game Of Thrones' revival?

Will there ever be a 'Game Of Thrones' revival?

As it turns out, the premiere of Season 8 was pushed to 2019 due to the strength of HBO's relationship with Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. HBO original programming president Casey Bloys revealed in an interview with IndieWire that the network will give the original show at least a year of buffer time before any more debut.

Asked if season 8 provides a conclusive end and whether we will see a definitive ruler on the Iron Throne, Bloys replied: "I don't even want to answer that!" After all, Game of Thrones has been a massive success for HBO. Just like with season eight, we're willing to wait, but we don't like it.

On whether the endless speculation over the show bothers him, Bloys added: "I don't mind!"

We've heard as much before and it makes sense that HBO would at least spread the two shows out as much as they have for previous seasons of Game of Thrones. "Here's what I'll tell you: They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality".

Among some of the writers already confirmed to work on the project are Max Borenstein (Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island) and Jane Goldman (X-Men, Kick-Ass). Bloys also talked about the upcoming five "Game of Thrones" prequels, which are now in development on the network. "Probably more likely around one". Not everybody is on the same schedule, so I've seen different versions of different things that are potentially exciting. "We have some really talented writers working on them".

"I suppose we could've said to them, 'You must deliver by this date,"' he continued. "But there's no timetable about when a decision would be made about any of them". It also sounds as if all of the proposed shows are still in early stages, meaning they still have to be finalized, cast, and shot. I don't want to cheapen it with a spinoff airing right after it.
