Well, yeah....which is kinda why I wonder about the approach they are taking.  People are basically telling them "no, we want this not that".  And they are saying they know better.  Maybe they do, we'll see.

They absolutely do know better, which is why we pay them.

Also noone sane is asking for a Arya spin off. So really everyone knows better. The question is being asked by hacks looking for a quote they can twist into clickbait, and by nobody else ever.

I'm entirely up for a GoTverse series produced by good people, set well away from the headaches of the last 4 years of GoT. It is a really good setting.

Anyone asking for an Arya sequel is a dumbass that shouldn't be listened to in the first place.

They have a limited library because they have a specific brand of 'limited library of things that are not shit'.

If they start churning out shit, their brand becomes just 'limited library' and they are fucked.

HBO is owned by AT&T now. Those guys donít give a shit about quality, they just want to see revenue.

Expect the production quality to go down and the number of shows green lit to go up. AT&T will want hem to throw shit at the wall and see what sticks.

Well, if your whole schtick is "which of these bad spinoffs will hurt us the least", then sure.  But an Arya spinoff has more chance of pleasing fans then probably whatever they are coming up with.

I don't know enough about HBO's service, however, so I don't know how risk-averse they are or should be.  Seems to me that HBO has a pretty limited library, which means they need hits hits hits.
A completely new story told in the GoT universe has a coinflip chance of being good, but if it's mediocre it won't make anyone really angry. A bad Arya spinoff would piss off a lot of people, and Arya's content in the last two seasons doesn't really inspire me to think they know what to do with her post-Books. If the Hound had lived, I'd have more faith in a potential Arya spinoff because at least we'd have had good banter between the two of them.

I personally would rather have that Arya goes west spinoff than whatever the fuck they are trying to shoehorn Naomi Watts into.

Yeah, and so would most people, despite what the above neckbeards are trying to intimate to the contrary.

Granted, HBO may still have the right of it.  Time will tell.

Apropos, the only thing people would want more than an Arya spinoff is and Arya+Hound spinoff.  Had he not fallen to his death.  Or hey, revive his ass somehow, wouldn't be the first time.

Time to do this would be in decade when everyone has calmed the fuck down about season 8, and Dream of Spring is hypothetically being published.

Or never. Never is good.

Talking about pregnancy: Did you notice that Cersei was pregnant at the end of the last season but now drinks wine again and almost cried when Euron made that line about putting a baby in her stomach. She is really not having any luck with her kids. :/

That was indeed what happened :

Showing that would have distracted from turning her into a comic book black queen, so good they cut it out.

A Cersei compilation video. Very professionally made and think showing well rounded picture of her character.

Rezzing this thread due to something IainC linked in Discord.  For your amusement:

After hiding from fan rage at the big stage and spot light of Comic-con this year, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss showed up for the first time since GoT ended to talk at a panel at the Austin film festival.  Somebody live tweeted what they discussed, and it's been picked up across the internet.  Now, I try to be slightly wary of bias just because so far, only what this one twitter user wrote seems to be what every article is quoting (though some state they confirmed with other sources it's true).  Still, they basically seem to have talked at length (in a very tone deaf manner) how they had no idea what they were doing from the get go, learned everything about film making as they did the series, and in general confirmed every dumb thing people thought.  If accurate, some of the shit they say at this panel.....

Here is the original twitter thread to read:

Yeah, there was a lot of things in that thread where I thought, "You really shouldn't have said that, brother."

Well their Star Wars trilogy got canceled so i guess they are in "fuck it" mode. Also the GoT prequel got canceled, the one with Naomi Watts.

Well, if Netflix did just offer them $200 million (that's what I'm seeing, but numbers seem to be speculation all over the place), to fuck around and do their own shit..... I could totally see walking away from the insanity of the Disney\Star Wars.  Especially if you are a duo of no talent ass clowns who have no idea wtf is going on.

On the other hand, they are a duo of no talent ass clowns, and with the talent the Disney board has on their side to oversea even basic level film making skill.......  I can easily see Disney handing them the paperwork equivalent of a Luger, and asking them to do the honorable thing.
