HBO Tossed Away $30 Million For ‘Game of Thrones’ Prequel Pilot

Game of Thrones emerged as a show juggernaut for HBO over the past decade. Whether it was the violence, the intrigue or the sex, viewers were captivated every week until the series finale in 2019.

It should therefore come as no surprise that the network is planning a sequel. What may be somewhat shocking, however, is that HBO had multiple spin-offs planned initially. As one launches this year, the other turned out to be a disaster — and an expensive one at that.
