Talks of Arya Stark 'Game of Thrones' spin-off shut down by HBO

‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Maisie Williams Sashays Onto BBC Adaptation Of ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ As Celebrity Judge

HBO programming president Casey Bloys has insisted that none of the planned spin-off shows will centre around the current cast, because he wants the main series of the show - created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss - to be "its own thing".

Turns out the Game of Thrones fanverse are a bunch of meme wizards, because Maisie's Twitter thread immediately filled to the brim with GoT-themed silliness.

As the last season of Game of Thrones trudged on, people were getting more and more frustrated with the writing of the show. I don't want to take characters from this world that they did beautifully and put them off into another world with someone else creating it. "George has massive, massive world; there are so many ways in".

"I was like so in denial I was one of the last people to wrap", Williams added. That's why we're trying to do things that feel distinct - and to not try and re-do the same show. "What I'm not doing is working backwards by saying, 'This has to be on the air by this date.' We want to do the best show possible". That's probably one of the reasons why, right now, a sequel or picking up any of the other characters doesn't make sense for us, ' he said. So, if you haven't watched the show before (or the last episode in particular) stop reading now. Case in point: Maisie Williams, who played badass Arya Stark on Game of Thrones.

Two costly unmade plays that extended the inning, Ji-Man Choi not catching a pop-up and Willy Adames bouncing a throw to first. AL Cy Young Award victor Blake Snell left trailing 1-0 after six innings, bouncing a run-scoring wild pitch in the third.

Coster-Waldau also made an appearance in a hilarious "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" skit Monday. I had to like, stay out of that emotion because there was so much to do - like, some really hard scenes to do.

Game of Thrones is averaging 44.2 million viewers per episode in its final season, a massive increase of 10 million viewers per episode over Season 7.

Memes came rolling in like, I don't know, a horde of White Walkers or something, and they were GOLD! With Arya? How about - I'm just throwing something out here - how about a petition? "I was like, 'Ahhhhhhh!' like, overreacting entirely and I just felt like an insane person a little bit", she added.
