Game of Thrones Prequels Premiere In 2020

"I'm thrilled, I imagine we'll shoot that this year".

The "Game of Thrones" spinoffs are still in the works at HBO with a few new details emerging...

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter (THR), HBO programming president Casey Bloys hinted that the five spin-offs are in the making but will take extra time to arrive on small screen.

Seven acclaimed, high-profile TV shows are making fans wait a rather long time for new episodes - with 2018 shaping up to be a year that's getting skipped by a bunch of top series altogether.

"I suppose we could've said to them, 'You must deliver by this date,"' he continued. Filming for Game of Thrones is still far from over, and it will be going on over the course of the next several months.

While most shows have ended for years - we're talking X Files, Dancing On Ice and even Twin Peaks - GoT fans were wondering if the show could just get a revival after it ends following its eighth season.

Perhaps more notably, Bloys fielded plenty of questions about the five Game of Thrones prequel shows in development, all of which are still shrouded in mystery.

"They're all on different schedules", Bloys said. It seems time is a flat circle that will take at least another year to come back around. We have really great writers working on these; it's very exciting. HBO will also premiere several original movies, including an adaptation of Fahrenheit 451 starring Michael Shannon and Michael B. Jordan. But there's no timetable about when a decision would be made about any of them. It tells the story of the on-going battle between the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros - as they fight for control of the coveted Iron Throne. Game of Thrones has been one of the most popular shows on HBO for a long time and audience interest has shown no signs of slowing down.

"What I don't want to do is detract from the final season", Bloys explained.
