We don't want to use it launch [a new series]. It tells the story of the on-going battle between the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros - as they fight for control of the coveted Iron Throne. "I don't think it's optimal, but it beats changing the showrunner and having it suck". This may be the end of A Song of Ice and Fire, but the Game of Thrones universe is set to continue with at least one spinoff series.

A honest apology to everyone who enjoyed HBO's journey to Monterey, California, past year in Big Little Lies-because the drama's second season will not be airing anytime soon.

Game of Thrones has been one of the biggest shows on television from nearly the very beginning, and it has only grown more popular with the passing years. What is HBO going to do?!' a year ago, that was it-we were going to die at the Emmys without Game of Thrones.

HBO president Casey Bloys told The Hollywood Reporter: "They start shooting in the spring". "The fact that we were able to get season two together is a small miracle".

The series premiered on HBO in the United states on April 17, 2011 - and quickly became one of the biggest event series in the "Golden Age" of TV.

"What I don't want to do is detract from the final season", Bloys explained.

"It wasn't necessarily a delay", Bloys told TVLine.

Now, Bloys has revealed the reasoning behind the delay: the showrunners want to take their time in creating the biggest, most visually-spectacular episodes to date.

When will Netflix's sci-fi smash return for season 3? The HBO show came off a highly anticipated and celebrated first season in 2017 that starred a insane cast of A-listers: Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley.

The critically-acclaimed western show was canceled by HBO in 2006 when creator David Milch could not come to an agreement with the network on how to wrap up the series.
