HBO Exec Hints at Everyone's Deaths in 'Game of Thrones' Season 8

There are now five Thrones prequels (HBO prefers you call them "successor shows") in development.

At the INTV conference in Jerusalem, Francesca Orsi, the senior VP of drama at HBO, implied that everyone is going to die "one by one".

But even after seven years of grisly harbingers of death, even the most pessimistic viewers might not have expected an ending like that potentially revealed by HBO executive Francesca Orsi.

"It was awesome", she gushed.

Actually, the cast did receive their scripts prior to the table read, but some elected not to read them and instead went into the event not knowing their character's fate. The move marks the first time that HBO will revisit one of its iconic shows.

Regarding the prequels, HBO has five scripts in contention for at least one potential series order.

"From a budget standpoint going into season two of Big Little Lies without any options in place we've been... um... short of raped", Orsi said, according to Deadline.

Orsi added "it feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it", restating the premium cable network's announcement in 2017 to develop multiple spinoffs for the show. GoT started with a relatively modest budget, which increased with each season (the final season has been estimated at around $15 million per episode).

They... "started to fall down to their deaths"?

"If we do take off on one of these Game of Thrones spin-offs, where do we start?"

"I don't want to out some of the partners and producers that we work with but lately a couple of the prestige pieces that have come through our door are passionately saying they want to set it up at HBO because at Amazon they don't get some of the benefits in marketing or, on 'Picnic At Hanging Rock, ' they can't travel the cast to the premiere", Orsi said.
