After The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad, the popular HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones too is getting an aftershow, titled After the Thrones. It is scheduled to debut on April 25 (The series airs on April 26 in India), one day after the sixth season premieres. It will feature interviews with the producers and various stars of the show as well as celebrity guests, reported Aceshowbiz.
It will be hosted by Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan of The Ringer. A new online feature from HBO partner Bill Simmons, the post-show series will only be available HBO Now, HBO Go and HBO On-Demand services, all in the US though.
There’s still a possibility that it would wind up on HBO at a later date.
The companion series 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. After the Thrones is constructed similar to such shows as Talking Dead (for The Walking Dead) and Talking Bad (for Breaking Bad).
Simmons is the founder of Grantland.com, in which Ryan and Greenwald hosted a podcast of Watch the Throne.
