HBO boss at & # 39; Game of Thrones & # 39; Final Backlash, Sequel Status, Spinoff Chances – Deadline



HBO only packed its epic series Game of Thrones on Sunday with a finale that broke the prize values ​​class register and shared fans on how the eighth and last season played out. With talks on Sunday's capping far from slowing down, we talked to HBO programmer Casey Bloys about alternative conclusions to the show by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the possibility of overall offers for them and J.J. Abrams, the status of GoT 's future prequels, and why it might not even Arya Stark be able to make a spinoff happen right now.

DEADLINE: Were you surprised by the fans' reaction to the final? 19659003] Game of Thrones "width =" 300 "height =" 1

BLOYS: No. To tell the truth for a show and this bubbly and for a show that has this passionately a fan base, I don't think there is any way that all fans would have been happy, I believe based on online reaction that you should take with a grain of salt it sees seems to be split and I think it's all about right – some people will love it, some people will hate it, but everyone is very passionate about it

I think everyone had hoped where the characters could go or But Dan and David had a plan for how they wanted the show to go for a long time, and they did it the way they seemed to fit as creators. I think they did a spectacular job. They landed a large plane, which was not easy. You will never keep everyone happy, but I don't think that was what they were trying to do.

DEADLINE: You made comments in 2017 that Game of Thrones would film several inferences to protect the finals. Did you shoot more extensions?

BLOYS: No. I think it was some look, and I said something anecdotal and it was caught. I don't think they actually shot more conclusions. But putting it in the water supply was not a bad thing to protect against leaks. They always had a little doubt because you couldn't be quite sure.

DEADLINE: How do you protect the end from leaking in a big way?

BLOYS: I think there was someone who was posting. … You could have found it if you wanted to, but most people will experience and go on a trip – I think it's a testament to the show. Last season, we had so many security measures available for how the show was distributed internationally, many security measures. Even with that, because you are dealing with people, there will always be the potential for someone to leak or tell someone or do something so that you can not secure guard 100%. In the end there was speculation about the end – some of it was correct as it turns out – but most wanted to experience it as fans.

DEADLINE: Did you discuss other possible conclusions with Dan and David?

BLOYS: No. They are very clever, very bright, very methodical. They've had this in their heads for a long time. So there were no big debates about whether it should end this way or not end this way, that was what they had planned.

DEADLINE: Do you have money from Starbucks after the coffee break event?

BLOYS: No. ( laughs ).

DEADLINE: What do you think about the fans' fascination with the cup and the water bottle in the final?

BLOYS: The fascination with it, the divisive reaction to the final, is all evidence of how much people were invested and engaged in the show. Some people have very strong negative opportunities and of course some positive opinions. But I take all this as a very good sign of what the show has been able to do to stay in the cultural conversation to get people passionately discussing the characters and stories. That's what you want a show to do.

DEADLINE: Did the big turnout last season and the fans' passion for the show changed the timeline of the prequel pilot?

BLOYS: I think the last thing you want to do with any show – prequel or not – you're not trying to hurry any show. So the last thing I want to do is put that kind of pressure on the prequel because George [R.R. Martin] has created this massive universe. It's within this universe, but Jane [Goldman] has created another show – it's not the same show, it's not the same characters, it's not the same time frame, it's not the same dynamic. It's a tough line to go, but you want to make a show that is of the world but not a replica.

I think [Goldman] has done a good job on the manuscript, and director SJ Clarkson prepper a fantastic pilot. We must do the pilot and take our time and do it right. Hopefully, I expect that we will love it and we will move forward, but I will not have anything to do with this last season to dictate anything that happens in that process.

DEADLINE: If everything with the pilot goes smoothly, the prequel series can premiere next year?

BLOYS: I don't know. I have to get a sense of production when we see scripts for a season, how big and involved it is. To shoot a pilot in June and get it in the air a year later, feels like a little hasty, but it's too fast to tell.

DEADLINE: Author George RR Martin recently told that three of Throne's games offshoots, including prequel pilot, are moving "nicely" on HBO. tell us what the other two are?

BLOYS: Here's what I want to tell you, I wanted to get through that last season and leave it as a cultural moment. has the pilot starting in June, and then we will decide if we want to do another or not. I let these things happen before we decide to do another or not.

DEADLINE: Could there be more than one in addition to the prequel with the starring Naomi Watts?

BLOYS: I doubt it, I don't do it I don't think so. I certainly won't overdo it. We have so many varied shows coming up in [2019] and & # 39; 20 and even in & # 39; 21. I think Thronespil is a great property, but I just don't want to be at home for prequels and sequels and all those things. I think you will be very careful about how you do it. That is why we have been working on the Jane pilot for a long time because we want to do it right. I don't want to rush anything just to hurry it out. I think the last thing fans wanted was something that was pushed out to get it air.

DEADLINE: Any update on the pilot?

BLOYS: The molding was completed a few weeks ago. They are busy in Belfast prepping and getting ready to start shooting in a few weeks.

DEADLINE: I know you had excluded direct spinoffs from Game of Thrones in the past, but there is a justification among fans for one with Arya Stark. Any chance you can revise the no-spinoff policy?

BLOYS: I understand where it comes from, I get it completely. But in terms of being careful about overdoing it or not killing the goose that puts the golden egg, I think Dan and David's show as it is in eight seasons, I will leave it as its own work of art and not show directly because Arya does. I think it's best to try prequels in other areas of George's massive universe – just feels like the right thing to do, let the show stand alone.

DEADLINE: What are the odds of those who stay in the fold with an overall agreement?

BLOYS: I think you had a precise story about those who meet around the city, which I believe, given their success and status, is the right thing to do because that is how a great marketplace for creators. Of course, we have a strong relationship with them, they also have a strong relationship with Warner Bros. So we want to be in business with them, but they go through the process and we will see how it all goes.

DEADLINE: What about their Confederate HBO drama. Can we assume that it is no longer on the front burner?

BLOYS: Not on the front burner, yes.

DEADLINE: Another creator you are in business with, JJ Abrams, is also an overall agreement WarnerMedia is in the exercise of. Any update on it?

BLOYS: I have no updates on his larger Warner deal, but he has his project with us, the first he has written for a long time. We have Lovecraft with him and of course Westworld . We at HBO are in the JJ business and really love to work with him.

DEADLINE: Talking about Westworld the trailer you just published looks very different. Will the show restart in season 3?

BLOYS: Not so much about a restart. At the end of the season, Dolores went away. So it was a bit of a tease to see how the world could look. All I want to say is, it still has robots in it, but it's not so much a restart as it comes with the characters.

DEADLINE: HBO recently fetched Julian Fellowes' lavish drama The Gilded Age which had been created by NBC via Universal TV. How did it come to be?

BLOYS: I met Julian before the holidays, this was before Bob [Greenblatt] came. I got the impression that there was a hesitation on NBC about the budget level it required to do a show like that; for a broadcast network, the economy is a little different. We had the meeting, nothing came out of it because they were still trying to find an agreement. Then NBCUniversal took it out on the market – it was more sensible for them to do it elsewhere – and we jumped in. It's such a massive show, so it takes some time to run it and throw and shoot. It was far enough that it made sense for our schedule, and it could also compliment … when you have big sci-fi shows, it's good I seem to have a big piece of stuff so you have one good mix of shows, it felt like a good addition to our canvas.

DEADLINE: Back to Game of Thrones . You have sent a campaign before the last memory viewers of the other show that you are wearing so they stick. Do you expect subscriber type after the end of GoT ?

BLOYS: Historically, what we have seen before any kind of tent pole shows as Game of Thrones True Detective Westworld – apparently Thronespil ] is the biggest – there is usually a continuous subscription to the show and then downwards. Normally, what we expect is a net profit. So there are definitely people who looked at HBO for Game of Thrones but historically we usually end up with a net profit, and that's what I expect in this case too.

DEADLINE: In conclusion, what has the experience of playing thrones taught you?

BLOYS: We are proud to have been home to it, it has been a good show for us, we are proud to have been in business with Dan and David. Someone was telling me that maybe it was after season 1 that was a headline saying that Ratings Show Game of Thrones is no Boardwalk Empire. & # 39; It's just a good reminder to everyone that you don't know where the next Game of Thrones comes the next water-cooler show comes from. That is probably not what you expect. So the best thing you can do is get started with people you believe in and support them, take a shot and see how it goes.

Play of Thrones the juggernaut as it is today is just a good reminder that it does not start that way, and when it came out, many people asked: "Oh, one fantasyepic on HBO, makes sense, i'm not sure it feels like HBO. " You have to constantly develop and push expectations, but remember that everything must have an extremely high level of quality.
