Game of Thrones Aftershow “After the Thrones” Canceled

With just a little more than a month before Game of Thrones‘ Season Seven premiere, HBO has announced that its after-show After the Thrones hosted by television critics Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan will be canceled. After the Thrones debuted last year on HBO’s online digital platforms and met with a tepid response.

Game of Thrones Final Season Might Not Be Until 2019

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, HBO’s Programming President, Casey Bloys (pictured) suggested that the final season of Game of Thrones might not be out until 2019.
