Game of Thrones finale will feature lots of major character deaths

Game of Thrones finale will feature lots of major character deaths”

Orsi said. "We can't obviously start with the budget of season 8 but would it be a "Game of Thrones" season three budget?"

"From a budget stand point going into season two of "Big Little Lies" without any options in place we've been short of raped", Orsi said.

"It was wonderful", Orsi said. "$50 million (per season) would never fly for what we are trying to do".

Following that, Orsi said that the network are hoping they are able to continue the wold of Westeros (and possibly beyond) with the potential spinoffs. Bryan Cogman, who wrote "Stormborn", is behind one of them, as is Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential), and Carly Wray (The Leftovers); creator George R.R. Martin is reportedly working with all of them in some capacity.

This is the first time HBO has ever developed a spin-off.

The channel's senior vice president of drama, Francesca Orsi, recently teased season eight while appearing on the Best of HBO panel at the INTV Conference in Israel. "None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths".

Game of Thrones will return for its eighth and final season in 2019. She admitted, however, that the choice to continue required major renegotiation with the show's cast, which includes that the transition from a one-season effort to a second season was a financial hurdle, requiring huge renegotiations with the cast, which includes Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.

Orsi added that sometimes the Israeli series are "so good that we don't even want to adapt".

"As a show goes on they get more expensive and as shows get more ambitious they will get more expensive", Bloys explained. "That's a very valuable talent".
