HBO has revealed that there is no end-game in place for Game Of Thrones or True Blood.
The network’s top brass hinted at the long-term security of three of its most popular serials – Game Of Thrones, True Blood and The Newsroom – at today’s TCA session.
On the futures of Game Of Thrones (originally envisaged to run seven seasons) and True Blood:
- HBO CEO Richard Plepler admitted that “they can go as long as there is story.”
On True Blood under new showrunner Brian Buckner:
- HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo: “It feels like there is a new energy this season, and the show still has a large fan base.”
On The Newsroom Season 3
- Lombardo: “The odds are excellent – we’re enormously happy about the show. Conversations with (creator) Aaron Sorkin are all about scheduling as he has other commitments. If we can figure the scheduling, I will be shocked if you would not be hearing about a renewal soon. The numbers this season are surpassing last season.”
Treme‘s Final Season
- The shortened final season of Treme will bow December 1.
