Hardcore Game of Thrones fans who regularly break down what every single scene in a trailer for season six means and spend their days hypothesizing the one million and one ways Jon Snow's fate could play out because they refuse to believe what anyone, including Kit Harington, says are getting a show just for them. HBO has ordered a weekly Game of Thrones recap show.
The long overdue after show is aptly titled After the Thrones. After the Thrones joins fellow recap shows like AMC's Talking Dead, The Walking Dead's official after show. According to HBO the after show: "…recaps 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." Not listed under the show's official description: counseling watchers through traumatic deaths because as you know "All men must die."
Helping lead us through this winter week-to-week starting on April 25 are hosts Chris Ryan and Andy Greenwald currently a part of The Ringer staff where they head "The Watch" podcast. Previously the pair hosted Grantland's "Watch the Thrones" podcast.
After the Thrones will be available every Monday after a new episode of Game of Thrones on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand, and will also air on the HBO channel, with dates for that to be announced. It hasn't been announced whether or not the show will air directly after Game of Thrones, since that's when Silicon Valley (which you should watch as comedic relief after GoT, but also because it's great) airs.
Only 20 days until Game of Thrones returns.
