The final season of Game of Thrones is now in production, which means that the spoilers will flow like the blood of your enemies soon enough. Referring to that table read, she said that it "was a really powerful moment in our lives and our careers", according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Francesca Orsi, one of HBO's two co-heads of drama series, caught heat for using the term "rape" when talking about the cost HBO has paid in order to move forward with a second season of its star-studded drama, "Big Little Lies". Orsi said the network is planning to budget close to - if not just as much - on the spinoffs as the series now receives. Orsi said. "We can't obviously start with the budget of season eight but would it be a Game of Thrones season three budget?"

"As a show goes on they get more expensive and as shows get more ambitious they will get more expensive", added HBO programming president Casey Bloys. "Then there was applause that lasted 15 minutes". Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, for instance, are reportedly making $1 million an episode in Season 2.

Character turnover is the show's bread and butter, but in this final season, it seems even more motivated than the Red Wedding.

It's doubtful that we're going to see an much more dialogue moving forward regarding the Big Little Lies cast salaries - we really shouldn't. If we do take off on one of these Game of Thrones spinoffs, where do we start?

There's no denying that it's hard to wait around for the return of GoT, and we already know the premiere of season 8 won't be until 2019 for a number of reasons - Kit Harington and Rose Leslie's wedding, longer episodes to film, etc. "More money doesn't always equal better but in some cases the scope of ideas do require it".

"We want to get out", Cunningham continued.
