HBO execs reveal new details about how Game of Thrones ends

The final season of Game of Thrones will premiere on HBO in 2019.

Is the final season of Game of Thrones set to be a bloody massacre?

Speaking at a conference in Israel, the network boss described what happened at a cast table read of the last few episodes.

"It was a really powerful moment in our lives and our career", senior vice president of drama at HBO Francesca Orsi said. She mentioned that "None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths".

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are the latest stars to follow Frances McDormand 's advice on " inclusion riders ". Jordan for pledging to adopt the documentlast week.

Given the phenomenal success of GoT, Orsi said "it feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it", noting the network is planning "three, four, five spin-offs" of the original series. "Then there was applause that lasted 15 minutes".

Orsi also promised that the final season of GoT will not disappoint.

While killing off the people of Westeros isn't exactly anything new, it sounds like the fantasy series is really going big with their last few episodes. "If David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] had five shows with us, "Game of Thrones" wouldn't be "Game of Thrones", he said. "More money doesn't always equal better but in some cases the scope of ideas do require it".

On the subject of the spinoffs (or "successor shows"), Orsi revealed that these shows have already been budgeted by the network. "They're in the volume business, we're in the curation business", said Bloys. Witherspoon is now attached to two television projects at Apple and Hulu, for instance, and she was reportedly able to use the amount of money she's being paid at Apple to negotiate an even higher salary at HBO. "Amazon is not paying for the travel, which is somewhat of a disgrace and they need to know that and others don't want to get lost in Netflix". "And as me Da used to say, 'Jesus, it's a bit dragged out isn't it?', so we don't want to drag it out".
