The completion of Game of Thrones has created a huge problem for HBO and parent company, AT&T. Tons of viewers are likely to dump their HBO subscriptions. But, here’s a bid. In order to reach the top, HBO is coming up with a range of shows, that have the potential to beat TRPs of GOT.
Let’s have a quick watch at some at them.
1.Watchman on HBO in 2019
The plot of the show is based on a DC comic written by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The plotline is based on an alternate planet where real superheroes and warriors exist. A lot hasn’t been revealed about the cast or story. The trailer has caused a bunch of excitement among DC fans. The cast includes big names like Jeremy Irons, Jean Smart and Regina King.
2.His Dark Materials on HBO in 2019
The series is based on a book by Philip Pullman. It depicts the story of two kids, dwelling between two parallel worlds. An interesting blend of fantasy and sci-fi may fetch HBO, a better audience pool.
James McAvoy and Ruth Wilson are already signed up for the show. The first season will include a total of eight episodes. While the production of the second season is in progress.
If horror is your genre, HBO has really something to offer. Based on racism against blacks in the 1950s the show centres on a black family that faces the real terrors of racial discrimination. The major turn here is that the family comes from a supernatural lineage. Further details are yet to be released.
4.The Outsider- 2020
The show is adapted from the most recent novel of the prodigy, Stephen King. The plot revolves around the murder of a schoolboy and suspects-a teacher and basketball coach. However, it later turns out that a monster is luring people to kill others. The star cast includes Jason Bateman and Ben Mendelsohn.
5.Westworld: Season 3 on HBO in 2020
The first season of the series, Westworld was majorly set in Westworld, but the second season expanded to include parks and outside world as well.
The show chronicles how robots and androids take over the whole planet and enslave humans. Furthermore, Emmy Award winner Breaking Bad’s, Aaron Paul is joining the Westworld team.
However, it would seem to be pretty unrealistic to compare the above shows with GOT. But it always has something different to offer.
Hope that the listed shows may bring back the massive audience of Game of Thrones back to HBO. Check Blocktoro for more updates.
