Kit Harington Says ‘Game Of Thrones’ Episodes May Be 90 Minutes Long, HBO Boss Explains 2019 Release
Last week we learned that Game of Thrones officially won’t return to HBO until 2019. HBO boss Casey Bloys explains why there will be such a long period of time between the end of Season 7 until the final season of Game of Thrones.
Bloys, who is the President of Programming at HBO, gave an interview to EW where he explained why the hell it is taking so long to get the epic ending of GoT and it has to do with showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss desire to make the last six episodes perfect.
“Here’s what I’ll tell you: They take the time they need to do the show at its highest level of quality. As the show has gone on, it’s gotten bigger — big battle scenes, big special effects,” Bloys said. “These things take time. Here’s the one thing I can assure you: Dan and Dave were not sitting around on a beach waiting to go back to work. They’re perfectionists and this is the soonest it can come back at a level of quality that they are comfortable with.”
