LOS ANGELES, April 5 (UPI) -- HBO says it is working on an analysis program called After the Thrones, which will follow each Sunday episode of Season 6 of Game of Thrones.
The after-show will offer "a lively, humorous and sophisticated look" at the Emmy award-winning drama, the cable network said in a press release.
The series is being produced in partnership with Bill Simmons' website the Ringer. The program will be available on Mondays on HBO NOW, HBO GO and HBO On Demand, as well as other affiliate portals. Playdates on the main HBO channel will be announced as they are confirmed.
Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan, who previously hosted the Watch the Thrones podcast, will preside over After the Thrones.
"Each week, After the Thrones will recap the latest episode, explaining the who, what, when and where, exploring the complicated politics and history of Thrones, and offering absurd and not-so-absurd theories about future episodes. Greenwald and Ryan will discuss the show as only they can," HBO said.
Based on the best-selling novels by George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones is a medieval fantasy series starring Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Sophia Turner, Maisie Williams, Lena Headey, Natalie Dormer, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Liam Cunningham. The show is to kick off its new season April 24.
