President of the American network, Casey Bloys, has discussed when the shows are likely to be on air, and it’s good news for those who don’t want to wait too long.
He said: “There are five of them. If we do a pilot and series, nothing is going to air on HBO until at least a year after the final season.
“We’re not doing a final season [of Game of Thrones] and then, ‘Following it at 11pm…’” he told The Hollywood Reporter.
It seems that, with the final season airing in 2019, fans can expect the spin-offs to land in 2020, at the earliest.
Little is known at the moment about what the series will hold, with Casey keeping the tantalising details under wraps.
However, was previously confirmed that the spin-offs will not feature any current characters from the Game of Thrones series.
Meanwhile, Arya Stark actress Maisie Williams has teased fans with a glimpse into season eight.
The 20-year-old hinted that the series will be “different” to what fans are hoping it will be.
She revealed that she sat down with her mother, “cracked open a bottle of wine and made predictions about how it was going to end,” before reading the script.
She confessed to The Times: “Neither of us was right!
“I don’t know if it’s gonna surprise people, but it’s just different to what you think it’s going to be.”
What’s more, the actress addressed rumours that each episode of the final season could be feature-length.
“Milk it for all it’s worth, why don’t you,” Maisie joked.
The star also admitted that she hopes to see a softer side of Arya in season eight.
“For a lot of the previous season her emotions were very cut off, she just didn’t want to hear what her family had been through,” Maisie said.
She added: “I hope in the new season I get a chance to bring back a bit more of that fun child that we fell in love with.”
Game of Thrones is will return to Sky Atlantic in 2019.
