Winter is Coming and “Game of Thrones” will be back on HBO on April 24th. While we all have been anxiously awaiting to know what really happened to Jon Snow, we now have something else to look forward to watching: AFTER THE THRONES.
After the Thrones – From the Press Release
AFTER THE THRONES, a weekly show that takes a lively, humorous and sophisticated look at the hit HBO series “Game of Thrones,” will debut this month. The first show to spring from HBO’s new partnership with Bill Simmons, AFTER THE THRONES will be hosted by Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan from The Ringer, Simmons’ new content site.
Beginning with the season premiere of “Game of Thrones” on April 24, each weekly edition of AFTER THE THRONES will be available on Mondays on HBO NOW, HBO GO and HBO On Demand, as well as other affiliate portals. Playdates on the main HBO channel will be announced as they are confirmed.
Each week, AFTER THE THRONES will recap the latest episode, explaining the who, what, when and where, exploring the complicated politics and history of “Thrones,” and offering absurd and not-so-absurd theories about future episodes. Greenwald and Ryan will discuss the show as only they can.
I’m pretty pumped to check this new show out. Sometimes it’s hard to process all of the feels after watching shows, especially ones like “Game of Thrones” where many of your favorite characters die or you’re left with a giant cliffhanger before the next episode. I know having a show like AFTER THE THRONES to watch right after “Game of Thrones” will give me some clarity and help me to process the what and why of each episode. AFTER THE THRONES is going to be like having a hilarious support group which will hopefully keep me calm enough to survive the week before the next episode aires.
