John Oliver cast a role at HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones spinoff, House of the Dragon in his latest big story. The comedian did an including all the segment on SLAPP lawsuits last weekend episode on Last Week Tonight, culminating in one of the biggest stunts in the show’s history. Also, he slings an insult at the Westerosi royal house.
Oliver frequently makes jokes at the outlay of the companies he works for, including HBO, WarnerMedia and their new parent company, AT&T. This week, he accidentally said jokingly about the plan to fill the void by Game of Thrones with various spinoffs.
The joke came during an explanation of the more significant segment, where Oliver sum up the similarities between his show, HBO’s legal department and Bob Murray, a coal executive who was asking him for alleged libel. Murray reportedly memorized him that “Home Box Office is in for the fight of its existence.”
“Which, look, might be true, but not because of his lawsuit,” Oliver joked. “It’s because Game of Thrones prequels, including Game of Thrones: The College Years, Game of Thrones: Winterfell Valley High and Throne Babies: Battle for the Rattle won’t be out for at least a year.”
“HBO’s gonna be fine, it’s gonna be fine,” he added with mock pessimism.
Oliver was of joking about the five series they are still working on. They are Game of Thrones, Bloodmoon, sixth spinoff, House of Dragon and straight to series
