Game of Thrones – Final Season Trailer

Do I really need to write anything here? Okay, off you go, we’ll talk after you’ve watched this…

In just a little over a month the final season of Game Of Thrones will begin, and with it one of the biggest zeitgeist shows of the past decade comes to an end.

The trailer teases and sizzles quietly, but holds promise for resolutions on a lot of dangling plot threads and, knowing the bloodthirsty nature of the show, probably the ends for a lot of favourite characters.

Of course, nothing this successful ever truly ends, and before we know it HBO will be launching prequel series, The Long Night, with star Naomi Watts, despite the caution just displayed by HBO Chairman, Robert Watts.

“The last thing you want to do is roll out a spinoff or two and they’re not up to the standard of the original show and then you’ve just sort of failed miserably,” Watts said in an interview with The Wrap.

But with Game of Thrones launching for the last time on April 15th, you can be pretty sure they’ll find a way to make those standards work and keep bringing in those all-important ratings.

Winter is, finally, almost here.

Summer is Coming – Game of Thrones Threatens Vacation Industry.

The entire summer vacation industry came under threat today when HBO announced that Game of Thrones season 7 would move its broadcast date to summer 2017.

Hoteliers, package airlines and sun lotion manufacturers expressed dismay at the announcement. “I felt a great disturbance in the Force,” said a spokesperson for them, quoting the wrong franchise “As if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.”

“Now that winter has arrived on ‘Game of Thrones,’ executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production a little later than usual, when the weather is changing,” said Casey Bloys, president, HBO programming, completely ignoring the pain inflicted on so many people. “Instead of the show’s traditional spring debut, we’re moving the debut to summer to accommodate the shooting schedule.”

Adding insult to injury, the producers have also announced the final two seasons would be considerably shorter, consisting of approximately six to eight episodes each. Quite how the world will deal with this double blow and whether or not vacation related industries will ever recover remain to be seen, but it certainly looks like our vacation tans will be lacking for the next two summers.
