Fans of HBO's Game of Thrones have heard quite a bit about the handful of successor series the network is developing to keep the Westerosi gravy train running after GoT concludes its run next year.

"From a budget standpoint going into season two of Big Little Lies without any options in place we've been... um... short of raped".

There's still at least a year to go before Game of Thrones' final season but that hasn't stopped viewers and the HBO show's production team spilling all the gory details.

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.

Game of Thrones is HBO's most popular series ever by a wide margin. The Ringer's Alison Herman described GoT as "the very last piece of the TV monoculture".

Luke is sold on his talent, but Katy and Lionel give him a "no" because they feel he hasn't found his identity yet. It's the same feedback she got almost 10 years ago, when she made it to Hollywood on the show.

On the intention to continue the show's universe: "It feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it".

"None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started to fall down to their deaths", she said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "That's why it spawned three, four, five spinoffs". Bryan Cogman, who wrote "Stormborn", is behind one of them, as is Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential), and Carly Wray (The Leftovers); creator George R.R. Martin is reportedly working with all of them in some capacity. But Orsi said there were tears after the final six scripts were read.

"We want to get out", Cunningham continued.

The explosive panel continued as Orsi noted that the high costs of additional episodes of Big Little Lies, combined with a slew of potential Game of Thrones spin-offs, could result in financial difficulty if any of the planned Thrones spin-offs make it to series.
