If the series finale of “Game of Thrones” left you unsatisfied, don’t hold your breath for a sequel to make it all better.
HBO programming president Casey Bloys said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that there will absolutely not be a sequel. (HBO is owned by WarnerMedia, CNN’s parent company), reported CNN.
“Shows have to come to an end,” he said. “This was eight seasons, it’s a great epic and shows have to come to a close. It’s part of the TV life cycle.”
The television series, based on the books of George R.R. Martin and adapted by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, ended with an abbreviated season, leaving some wanting more. “(Benioff and Weiss) made this decision a long time ago and they’re doing it exactly how they planned to do it,” Bloys told the outlet.
