The much awaited television series, “Game of Thrones”, might make you wait more.  As per the announcements made by HBO, they are likely to release their whole new drama called “Vinyl ” in the month of February, which means that “GoT” will be pushed back further this year than planned. Although, this is not the sole reason for the delay, something else also contributed to this rescheduling, read here to know.

The first episode of “Vinyl” will air on February 14, next year, which was the proposed date for “Game of Thrones”. The latest show is a story set in 1970s New York and follows record label executive Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale) in his quest to save his company and himself without destroying everyone else around him. The series is directed by Martin Scorsese’s, who is known for some of the remarkable works like “Mean Streets”, “Taxi Driver”, and “The Wolf of Wall Street”.

According to the reports of Vanity Fair, the series will run for 10 weeks each Sunday, which means there’s no scope of “GoT” release till May 1. Although, there could be other confidential reasons but one most popular among the fans is that HBO is giving Penguin Random House and author, George R.R. Martin just a little more time to release “The Winds of Winter”, the sixth book in “A Song of Ice and Fire” series, before Season 6 kicks off. There are actually plenty of clues to indicate that the book could be dropping in early 2016.

These were just heard from the grapevine, if we consider the facts, then “Vinyl” will run from February to April, that straight away gives way to “Game Of Thrones” in May or July but then, it confuses us with the third show, “Westworld”,  which is in the row to release following up “Girls, Togetherness”, “Veep”, and “Silicon Valley”.

“Westworld” has already released their first trailer.

So many projects in hand but it’s really a tough job to meet everyone’s expectation, especially for releasing “Game of Throne”s on time.
