(SPOILERS) "Game of Thrones" co-creators and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss reveal the fate of one of the show's most beloved characters.
Benioff and writing partner D.B. Weiss are responsible for perhaps the most ambitious show in television history. “Game of Thrones” has shattered ratings records for HBO and garnered a continuing slew of awards, including multiple Emmys for best drama. And the duo’s “Thrones” success has spawned a wealth of new opportunities. In 2017, HBO announced to much controversy that following the upcoming eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones,” Benioff and Weiss would exec-produce a new series, “Confederate,” that would imagine a world in which the South had won the Civil War. More warmly received was Lucasfilm’s revelation this year that the two will create a new trilogy for the “Star Wars” franchise — news that upended the possible future of “Confederate.”
