HBO President of Programming Casey Bloys had a busssyyy day at the 2018 Summer TCA press tour. Not only did he clap back at criticism about the Emmy-nominated series Westworld, but he finally broke his silence about the final and most epic season of Game of Thrones.

Bloys revealed quite a number of major details about the fantasy series during the panel discussion, such as its return in "first half of 2019" and also a few other major things in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

The Final Script Reaction

Security Measures

Because of the different hacks and leaks HBO has experienced over the years, "We’re at a pretty heightened security level," Bloys admitted.
