Don’t expect a “Game of Thrones” sequel about Arya to ever happen.

At the end of the series, the younger Stark girl turns into Dora the Explorer and decides to hop on a ship to head west. That’s left the door open to some thinking there might be a sequel on the way, but HBO programming president Casey Bloys has now made it clear that won’t happen.

“Nope, nope, nope. No. Part of it is, I do want this show — this Game of Thrones, Dan and David’s show — to be its own thing. I don’t want to take characters from this world that they did beautifully and put them off into another world with someone else creating it,” Bloys responded when asked by The Hollywood Reporter if there were any plans for a sequel about Arya’s travels west.

Good. There’s no need for an Arya sequel. If there’s a need for anything, it’d be for the people behind the series finale to apologize and right all the wrongs they committed against millions of fans. That’s the only thing we need.

Arya just sailing away wasn’t a good end to her storyline, but at least it wasn’t the worst. In fact, of all the trash storyline endings, hers might have made the most sense behind Sansa’s.

I see no reason at all for some half-cocked sequel about her explorations around the globe.

Don’t get me wrong, I like Arya’s character a ton. She’s a badass assassin, but it’s time to put the main “Game of Thrones” series to rest.

We had some great times, but I’m in no mood for expansion of the main characters after the trash ending we were left with. My guess is most fans are in complete agreement with my assessment of the situation.

We’ve already got prequels on the way, and that’s enough for me. Let’s wipe the slate clean, start over and see where we end up.

That sounds a lot more appealing than just taking Arya and rushing her all over the world. Hard pass.

Sound off in the comments with if you would want a sequel or are just content with the prequels. I’d be interested to see what you all say.
