A Game of Thrones sequel feels like a natural extension of the main show, as there's so many different loose threads that could be finessed into a new series, but HBO Programming President Casey Bloys is pretty definitive in suggesting otherwise.
'Part of it is, I do want this show - this Game of Thrones, Dan and David's show - to be its own thing, ' Bloys said.
In the final episode of the HBO fantasy drama - which aired on Sunday - Arya declared she was headed on a journey to discover what's "west of Westeros", and despite the final scenes leaving fans desperate for a spin-off series detailing the young Stark's adventures, it's unlikely the idea will ever become a reality.
"I understand where that comes from, I totally get it".
Bloys told Deadline that he wants Game of Thrones to stand on its own, as a work of art.

The series finale set a new record for the most watched HBO episode of all time, with a massive 19.3 million viewers tuning in live, or via the HBO Go and HBO Now streaming platforms. So the last thing I want to do is put that sort of pressure on the prequel because George [R.R. Martin] has created this massive universe. "We want to do the best show possible".
'And Arya... I know they're doing all these prequels, but what about the sequel?
In fact, as it stands, HBO already has three Game of Thrones prequels now in the works - the first of which, according to Bloys, is gearing up to start shooting very soon. Even up to the point when Cersei's with Jaime I thought [while reading the script], 'He's going to whip off his face [and reveal its Arya]' and they're both going to die. That's why we're trying to do things that feel distinct - and to not try and re-do the same show.
It was probably clear that not everybody would be happy about the Game of Thrones ending even before the final season aired.
While Game of Thrones may be over, we're still getting more stories set in the world of Westeros from HBO.
