In a recent interview, HBO CEO Richard Plepler has shared some of the network's plans on the show's prospects and international growth.
According to Plepler, discussions about the future of the "Game of Thrones" franchise are in the "embryonic" stage. The executive expressed his interest in the show's creative voice and vision and gave hints at the future of the Westeros-centered franchise.
"It certainly has not escaped [HBO president of programming] Casey [Bloys] and myself that there might be some brand extension [for GOT] that would be exciting. It certainly has not escaped the producers," Plepler shared. "Right now we're focused on finishing the series with the kind of energy and excitement that everyone has come to expect. We're going to do that while at the same time parallel processing very embryonic stages of other possibilities."
"Game of Thrones" fans can be reassured that Plepler and his team are currently focused on delivering the excitement and energy that watchers are expecting for their finale. He guaranteed that the GOT franchise will be creating and considering plans and possibilities as they simultaneously work on "Game of Thrones" season 7.
"Game of Thrones" creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss along with Jack Bender are already working on the last touches of the season episodes. They state that "Game of Thrones" season 7 will be having seven episodes as they were not able to create ten with the given 12 to 14 month period.
"GoT" fanatics can look forward to "Game of Thrones" season 7 which will premiere in mid-2017. They also have to watch out for a possible "Game of Thrones" spinoff in the future.
