  • Game of Thrones season 8 Daenerys and Jon

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.

Speaking at the INTV conference in Israel Tuesday, the U.S. network's senior vice-president of drama described the moment the cast read their scripts for the show's final episode for the first time.

"None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths".

HBO is serving as showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff's personal Iron Bank for the final six episodes, but the network is also planning on going big for the prequels.

HBO senior VP of drama Francesca Orsi revealed that the spinoff shows are being granted hefty budgets greater than what Game of Thrones had to work with in its early days.

Given the phenomenal success of GoT, Orsi said "it feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it", noting the network is planning "three, four, five spin-offs" of the original series.

Broncos DL Adam Gotsis arrested on 2013 rape charge
Gotsis, the Broncos' second-round pick in the 2016 draft, surrendered to Fulton County authorities on March 7. He started in 13 games in 2017 after not starting any his rookie season.

Orsi said, "From a budget standpoint, going into Season 2 of "Big Little Lies" without any options in place, we've been. um. short of raped".

At a table read for one of the final episodes of "Game of Thrones", everyone was crying, and it ended with 15 minutes of applause.

"It was awesome", she gushed.

The executives also addressed the upcoming second season of "Big Little Lies", which will also try to recapture the magic of the first.

Bloys said Netflix's volume demands explained the company's recent mega-deals with Ryan Murphy and Shonda Rhimes. Orsi added that the deluge of series from streaming services is "absolutely diluting" quality of shows by ordering in volume. Amazon is not paying for the travel, which is somewhat of a disgrace and Amazon needs to know that.

"We want to get out", Cunningham continued. "That's a very valuable talent". We hope Orsi doesn't mean that everyone dies - that'd be depressing even by Thrones standards.
