HBO Bosses have revealed that there will be no Game of Thrones spin-offs.
This comes after fans cried out for an Ayra spin-off series.

So fans clearly want it but why won't HBO make it?
sat down with HBO programming president Casey Bloys about their future line-up, now that their biggest ever show has essentially come to an end.
When speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO programming president Casey Bloys said;
"There are no plans currently to put anything more in development"
So not a no but a maybe for the furture?
However, THR did also ask about when fans of the franchise can expect to see the first of the prequels, to which Bloys answered:
"We're shooting the pilot in June, you can do the math and figure out when it would be on the air. 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. This is a pilot, so we're doing it the old-fashioned way, which is shooting a pilot. My expectation is it will be great and we'll move forward and it'll move along on a regular TV timetable. I don't want to speculate any dates."
Considering that six of the eight seasons of Game Of Thrones kicked off in the month of April we're guessing that by his "You can do the math" statement pretty much means we should expect it around April 2020.
