Maisie Williams' 'Game of Thrones' character Arya Stark won't be getting her own spin-off show.
In the final episode of the HBO fantasy drama - which aired on Sunday - Arya declared she was headed on a journey to discover what's "west of Westeros", and despite the final scenes leaving fans desperate for a spin-off series detailing the young Stark's adventures, it's unlikely the idea will ever become a reality.
HBO programming president Casey Bloys has insisted that none of the planned spin-off shows will centre around the current cast, because he wants the main series of the show - created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss - to be "its own thing".
When asked by The Hollywood Reporter about the possibility of an Arya Stark spin-off, he said: "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. I want to let it be the artistic piece they've got."
Casey's dismissal comes after even 'Game of Thrones' star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau - who played Jaime Lannister - said he was keen to see his co-star Maisie front a spin-off about Arya's travels.
