It’s been a while since the sixth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones ended, and fans of the television series are earnestly waiting to find out what’s next. They have already been informed that Game of Thrones Season 7 is going to be out in summer of 2017 and have accepted the fact that it is going to be a long wait.
Fans of Game of Thrones can treat themselves to a live concert for the show’s music in Los Angeles next week. While this isn’t quite the same as watching the series, they are still going to be involved in something that will at least help them stay connected with their favorite series.
The Game of Thrones concert will see a full orchestra coming together to perform at the Hollywood Palladium on Monday. The event is going to see the composer Ramin Djawadi along with Hempstead Wright, who plays the role of Bran Stark. Ramin Djawadi and Hempstead Wright are going to answer fans queries at the venue of the concert.
Apart from the musical extravaganza, the fans of Game of Thrones can also enjoy the interactive exhibit. They can see the Hall of Face and the Iron Throne. The exhibition will also include costumes from the series apart from Arya Stark’s sword, the Needle.
HBO has made it official that Game of Thrones is going to come to an end with the eighth season. The news was revealed by Casey Bloys, the president of programming, at the Television Critics Association. Bloys revealed that David Benioff and D.B Weiss have a very clear idea of how they want the plot of Game of Thrones to progress.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bloys has come out to reveal that if he could have his way, he would have continued Game of Thrones for ten seasons. The show runners for the popular series have a plan that HBO want to respect since that guarantees a successful run.
Apart from the sad news that Game of Thrones is going to end with Season 8, there is news that suggests that Benioff and Weiss are planning to cap the number of episodes after Season 6 to ten or fifteen. While this upset fans somewhat, they have been informed that the upcoming season is going to see Jon Snow, Daenerys, Tyrion and Cersei Lannister coming face to face.
The fans of the novel series, A Song of Ice and Fire are celebrating the 20th year of it. It’s been 20 years since the book has been published. To mark the 20th anniversary of the novel series, George R.R. Martin mentioned that a special edition of A Game of Thrones book is going to be launched with illustrations. While Martin spoke about a special edition, he didn’t provide any suitable update on when fans can expect the release of the sixth novel, Winds of Winter.
With HBO revealing that Game of Thrones is going to come to an end with Season 8, the fans have already started speculating on what they can expect from HBO after the series comes to a close.
They have seen several popular series that have a large number of plots and stories getting their spin-offs, and fans are hoping that Game of Thrones is going to see a similar fate.
There are stories within the novels that could provide HBO with material for their spin-off series. Fans have come to reveal that the tales of Dunk and Eggs is a story that exists in a form of three novellas. The story revolves around Sir Duncan the Tall, a Kingsguard and Egg, his squire, who is believed to be Aegon V Targaryen.
