Beware: Spoilers for the series finale of Game of Thrones are discussed below.

In the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones, Arya Stark found herself in the Red Keep of King's Landing, just steps away from crossing the final and arguably most important name off her long-kept kill list.

With a slew of prequel series reportedly being developed by the premium cable network, many were wondering if Arya would find new life in a sequel show. But an Arya spinoff following her as she travels west of Westeros isn't in the cards, HBO confirmed, as it elaborated on what comes next in the Thrones televised universe. Hollywood Reporter recorded a statement of the programming chief stating "Shows have to come to an end".

George RR Martin, author of the A Song of Ice and Fire series on which Game of Thrones is based, has written a blog post in response to Monday night's series finale. "That's probably one of the reasons why, right now, a sequel or picking up any of the other characters doesn't make sense for us", Bloys said. "We are going to do that pilot and take our time and do it right", Bloys said, confirming that production on that pilot begins in June and that they'll assess the future of other possible spinoffs after that.
