For any die-hard Game of Thrones fans who were dreading the day the HBO show announced news of the seventh and final season, there was so good news.

Producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss have been suggesting since the series second year that they would try and get seven years out of the hugely successful fantasy series.

This week Entertainment Weekly are reporting that programming president for HBO Micheal Lombardo might be thinking differently than the two showrunners.

“Seven-seasons-and-out has never been the conversation”, he said at the Television Critics Association’s press tour this week. So, that basically means we could be watching our favourite Mother of Dragons forever, right?

“The question is: How much beyond seven are we going to do? Obviously we’re shooting six now, hopefully discussing seven.” He went to say that David and Dan are “feeling like there’s two more years after six.”

Game of Thrones fans all around the world are certainly rejoicing. But what about any of those with a soft spot for Jon Snow?

“Dead is dead is dead. He be dead. Um, yes. Everything I’ve seen, heard and read, Jon Snow is indeed dead," he said.

It looks like any hope those with a thing for curly haired Northmen was dashed then and there. However, Kit Harrington has been spotted out and about in Belfast with the rest of the cast recently. It is Game of Thrones after all, pretty much anything can happen in Westeros it seems.

Other news from press tour related to questions surrounding a possible prequel to the series.

Michael said that as of yet there had been “no discussions” about such an adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s work but he is open to doing anything David and Dan want to do. 



Any Little Women fans desperately in need of a fresh adaptation of their favourite sisters might just be in luck.

According to Deadline, the CW network (home of The Vampire Diaries and formerly Gossip Girl) are taking on the literary success in their latest script buy for next year’s development season.

Up and coming series writer Alexis Jolly is said to have penned the script while NCIS actor Micheal Weatherly is also reported to be involved in developing the series.

It is described as “a hyper-stylized, gritty adaptation of the 1868 novel by Louisa May Alcott, in which disparate half-sisters Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy band together in order to survive the dystopic streets of Philadelphia and unravel a conspiracy.”

Apparently the sisters must also try and “not kill each other in the process” of uncovering the great big conspiracy.

We think this will certainly get some serious viewer attention when the project goes ahead.

In the past Little Women has been adapted numerous times for the screen. In 1994, the film adaptation staring Winona Ryder, Susan Sarandon, Kirsten Dunst and Christian Bale was called the “loveliest” version ever to make to our screens.

As recently as last year American network ABC intended to develop a modern-day take on Little Women. Clearly the much loved classic is still worthy of some Hollywood attention then.

It might be awhile before this latest adaptation hits our screens but we’re sure there is going to be plenty of people tuning in. We know we’re all pretty excited about it.
