The post-"Game of Thrones" breakdown of everything that went down in Westeros is moving to its rightful home: online.
Bill Simmons' "Game of Thrones" aftershow "After the Thrones" is moving from HBO to Twitter and being renamed "Talk the Thrones," according to The Hollywood Reporter.The Ringer writers Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan will remain as hosts of the aftershow, which will stream live on Twitter and Periscope every Sunday night.
Putting the aftershow on Twitter makes sense, since "Game of Thrones" was the most discussed TV show on the social media site last year."We love 'Game of Thrones' and we love the way Twitter is thinking about content right now, so we jumped at the chance to blow out our Thrones show into an interactive multimedia experience — something that reacts immediately to what just happened, almost like a postgame show in sports," Simons told THR.
Simmons' own HBO talk show "Any Given Wednesday" was canceled last fall. But he continues to produce content for the network under a major deal signed in 2015. His next project for HBO is a documentary about Andre the Giant.
