HBO execs promise multiple character deaths in Game of Thrones season 8

"Game of Thrones" fans have known from the first season (Ned Stark, nooooo!) that author George R.R. Martin is willing to kill off any character, no matter how beloved.

It's been confirmed by HBO executives that the final few episodes of Game of Thrones will feature multiple major character deaths.

Orsi said HBO was confident the scripts for season 2 of Big Little Lies "are as good, if not better, than last season" and that the network would not have ordered another season if they hadn't been sure that "we have to more to do and say and there's passion on the part of the cast".

SVP of drama Francesca Orsi spoke on a panel at the INTV Conference in Israel about the network's upcoming programming. She mentioned that "None of the cast had received the scripts prior, and one by one they started falling down to their deaths". As Orsi said, "It feels like corporate malfeasance to not continue it". "Then there was applause that lasted 15 minutes". Orsi said. "We can't obviously start with the budget of season 8 but would it be a Game of Thrones season three budget?" "As a show goes on they get more expensive and as shows get more ambitious they will get more expensive", he said.

CRPF men killed in blast triggered by Naxals in Chhattisgarh
The personnel were onboard a mine protection vehicle which was passing through Kistaram, a naxal-dominated part of Sukma district. On March 11, 2017, suspected Maoists ambushed a CRPF road-opening team and killed 12 troopers in Sukma.

While killing off the people of Westeros isn't exactly anything new, it sounds like the fantasy series is really going big with their last few episodes.

On the subject of the spinoffs (or "successor shows"), Orsi revealed that these shows have already been budgeted by the network.

As it stands, HBO has carved a niche for itself in the high-end drama field, with Bloys saying the network is in the "curation business", while competitors like Netflix are in the "volume business". Orsi said when HBO picked up In Treatment in 2008 - adapted from the HOT series BeTipul - it was a real turning point. Let us know what you think down in the comments section below!
