HBO executive rules out Arya Stark Game of Thrones sequel

HBO's Game of Thrones recently ended its eighth and final season.

One of the most jaw-dropping moments from Game of Thrones Season 8 was Arya hooking up with Gendry, played by the much older Joe Dempsie. Instead, she decides to go off the maps, to discover what's "west of Westeros".

Speaking in an interview withDeadline, HBO programming president Casey Bloys reveals that Game of Thrones showrunners DB Weiss and David Benioff have long since known how the series would end.

"Nope, nope, nope. No".

"The Hound says, 'You want to be like me?" "What we know about the show is that it constantly surprises you, so I'm wondering if it might be Bran".

George R.R. Martin is hopeful that he will finish The Winds of Winter, the sixth novel in his A Song of Ice and Fire series, by the middle of 2020. "But I guess sleeping with Gendry, seeing Jon again, realizing she's not just fighting for herself anymore but also her family-it's bringing up all these human emotions that Arya hasn't felt for a long time". However, when asked if any of the shows in development, or any shows that may ever come, will explore what happened after the finale, Bloys had this to say.

While there are no less than three "Game of Thrones" spin-off pilots in the works at HBO, Bloys insists they'll take place in other eras in author George R.R. Martin's "GoT" universe, and won't feature characters from the show. "I think the last thing fans would want is something that was rushed out just to make it to air". "It's a tough line to walk, but you want to do a show that is of that world but not a replica".

As for the previously mentioned prequel though, now codenamed Bloodmoon, it's recently been revealed that it will star Naomi Watts and is presently in very early pre-production with the intention to shoot a pilot episode in June. "But the point is, everybody is feeling really passionate about it". It was a bit of come down and you have to accept that it wasn't meant to be. You can start to get yourself so down on everything, being like, 'This is the last time I'm gonna read scripts.

Though they had some guidance from Martin's advice, fans revolted over the eighth and final season of the Emmy-winning series, with almost 1.4 million signing a petition asking for a do-over as of Tuesday.
