Game of Thrones stars 'in tears' over ending

Game of Thrones stars 'in tears' over ending

Orsi said the network is planning to budget close to - if not just as much - on the spinoffs as the series now receives.

"On the budget for the spinoffs: "$50 million (per season) would never fly for what we are trying to do. All of the cast members originally signed a one-season deal, which means none of their salaries were locked in place for a potential follow-up run of episodes. Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, for instance, are reportedly making $1 million an episode in Season 2.

"We gave the greenlight (for the series) on Friday", Bloys told the audience at the INTV conference in Jerusalem on Tuesday. "More money doesn't always equal better but in some cases the scope of ideas do require it".

It should come as no surprise that some of the main characters in Game of Thrones are doomed to die in the show's final season.

"Game of Thrones" is also skyrocketing the network's budget.

This is the first time HBO has ever developed a spin-off.

Producers and executives have been notoriously tight-lipped about Game of Thrones since the show's inception, but a particularly fiery panel discussion seems to have hinted at some major spoilers for the show's finale.

"It feels like corporate malfeasance' to not continue it, which is why it's spawned three, four, five Game of Thrones spin offs". But Orsi said HBO is still the preferred choice for prestige offerings when compared to Amazon, Netflix, and other new competitors. "And as me Da used to say, 'Jesus, it's a bit dragged out isn't it?', so we don't want to drag it out".

There's no denying that it's hard to wait around for the return of GoT, and we already know the premiere of season 8 won't be until 2019 for a number of reasons - Kit Harington and Rose Leslie's wedding, longer episodes to film, etc.
