Helping us deal with the delay is knowing we're nearly all but guaranteed to get another story from Westeros, via a prequel spin-off.

"There is not going to be anything in any scenario where we have any sort of prequel air for at least a year after that", HBO president Casey Bloys told Deadline at TCA. This Emmy Award-winning show is expected to reveal which of the warring families of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros will win the control of the Iron Throne. The odds that even more records will be broken in the eighth and final season are pretty good.

Bloys further confirmed to TVLine that no existing GoT characters will be featured in the prequels, but there may be familiar bloodlines - meaning members of the great houses we've come to know. The one thing I will tell you, which we talked about before, any sort of pilot-to-series [order], there's not going to be anything on our air for a least a year after Game of Thrones airs.

"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", he added. "Everything on Game of Thrones is driven by their desire to make the best show possible".

Season 3 has been a long time coming - the second round aired back in 2015.

The worst villians in soap and TV from EastEnders' Janine Butcher and Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones. Bloys also talked about the upcoming five "Game of Thrones" prequels, which are now in development on the network. "We ave some really talented writers working on them". The decision to separate the season finale of Game of Thrones and the prequels was made so as not to "cheapen" the finale "with a spin off airing right after it". But after HBO greenlit a new season set in the Ozarks last fall (and cast Mahershala Ali, Stephen Dorff, and Carmen Ejogo), there was some hope that maybe we'd get the new season in 2018.
