ATTN: Major Game of Thrones spoilers ahead...
One of the most exciting things to come out of the Game of Thrones finale was the possibility of an Arya Stark spin-off show.
At the end of the episode, we saw Arya set off on her own adventure west ‘where the map of Westeros ends', leaving behind her siblings to rule over the seven kindgoms (well excpet for Jon, who by the looks of things went to live with the wildlings).
Considering we've never see what's west of Westeros, Arya storyline left many hoping that was to set up the storyline of a future spin-off show.
But unfortunately, those hopes have just been shattered.
Casey Bloys, HBO Programming President, shut down the possiblity of Arya getting her own show while speaking with The Hollywood Reporter.
"Nope, nope, nope. No. Part of it is, I do want this show – this Game Of Thrones, Dan and David’s show – to be its own thing. ‘I don’t want to take characters from this world that they did beautifully and put them off into another world with someone else creating it." he explained.
"George has a massive, massive world; there are so many ways in. That’s why we’re trying to do things that feel distinct – and to not try and redo the same show.
That’s probably one of the reasons why, right now, a sequel or picking up any of the other characters doesn’t make sense for us."
While there's rumours of multiple Game of Thrones spin-off shows in the works, only one has so far been officially confirmed.
The show will be a prequel, set thousands of years before Game of Thrones and set to be released, at the earliest, in 2020.
