It should come as no surprise that some of the main characters in Game of Thrones are doomed to die in the show's final season.
"From a budget standpoint going into season two of Big Little Lies without any options in place we've been... um... short of raped", Orsi said, according to Deadline. "We can't obviously start with the budget of Season 8, but would it be a Game of Thrones Season 3 budget?" But Orsi said HBO is still the preferred choice for prestige offerings when compared to Amazon, Netflix, and other new competitors.
HBO previous year announced that it had teamed with Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass), Brian Helgeland (Legend) and Carly Wray (The Leftovers) to develop separate spin-off series based on the fantasy world created by writer George R.R. Martin. By the end, the last few words on the final script, the tears just started falling down.
The table read concluded with "a 15-20 minute standing ovation" (which.seems excessive when you think about it, but hey, HBO loves their high drama).

Prime Minister Theresa May said this was unacceptable. "The risk of destabilising the fragile peace process must be avoided at all costs.
As such, Orsi noted "it feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it", with HBO now developing "three, four, five spin-offs". HBO programming president Casey Bloys mused.
HBO has found itself in a little bit of hot water ... or at least one of their executives has over some comments that were made recently about the Big Little Lies season 2 salaries for Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, and the rest of the cast.
"The reason they're getting paid so much is they're so prolific", he said.
And the budgets for those spinoffs are going to be big, but not quite undead-Polar Bear big. But HBO itself has said very little since the initial announcement.
