Not-so-cleverly-titled, ‘After the Thrones.’
Titled After the Thrones, the show will be similar to The Walking Dead’s after-show, Talking Dead. You might recognize hosts Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan from their GoT podcast, Watch the Thrones, via the defunct Grantland pop culture blog. Greenwald and Ryan now work for The Ringer, a new site hosted by Bill Simmons, who is also the executive producer for After the Thrones.
According to Vulture, After the Thrones will entertain “absurd and not-so-absurd” theories about GoT following each new episode of season 6 on Mondays on HBO. Viewers can see it on HBO Go, HBO Now and HBO On Demand.
On Twitter, fans generally seem happy about the news, though opinions are mixed on the talent:
Game of Thrones after show? Yesssssss. Bill Simmons? Nooooooo
