HBO boss: Game of Thrones won’t return until 2019 because “these things take time,” and showrunners are “perfectionists”
“Here’s what I’ll tell you: They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality,” HBO programming chief Casey Bloys tells EW. “As the show has gone on, it’s gotten bigger — big battle scenes, big special effects. These things take time. Here’s the one thing I can assure you: Dan and Dave were not sitting around on a beach waiting to go back to work. They’re perfectionists and this is the soonest it can come back at a level of quality that they are comfortable with.”
- Game of Thrones prequels won’t premiere until at least 2020
- Bloys says David Benioff and D.B. Weiss won’t proceed with Confederate for a year to a year and a half
- HBO hopes to start filming the long-awaited Deadwood movie in fall 2018
- Big Little Lies and True Detective are expected to return in 2019

The same design firm created the opening credits for Game of Thrones, Westworld, Daredevil and The Crown
Angus Wall’s Elastic firm was put on the map by Game of Thrones, leading to other series — from The Young Pope to True Detective to American Gods — to seek out the company’s ideas. “Game of Thrones is still referenced more so than anything that is more recent, even like, Westworld or True Detective,” says Jennifer Sofio Hall, Elastic’s managing director. “It was an incredibly iconic piece of entertainment. I think it reinvigorated the main-title category for the Emmys, and everything else.”
