Filed under: TV NewsTwitterGame Of ThronesSocial Issues

Watch before you hate!

That's what Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have to say to the critics of their next HBO drama Confederate.

The freshly announced project imagines a modern-day America where slavery is still legal and has evolved into a modern institution. The show will follow characters on both sides of the "the Mason-Dixon Demilitarized Zone" in the events leading to the "Third American Civil War."

Needless to say, not everyone was hooked by the modern slavery concept — especially from two white producers whose current show has been called out for a lack of diversity.

Some critics were so appalled, they accused HBO of making a show that sounds like a white supremacist fantasy!

But Benioff and Weiss — along with producers Nichelle Tramble Spellman and Malcolm Spellman — are telling haters to slow their roll, calling the backlash "a little premature" in a new interview.

Speaking to Vulture on Thursday, the writers said no scripts for Confederate have even been written yet, and people should watch the premiere before they decide whether the concept offends them or not. Benioff noted:

no title

Game Of Thrones may be coming to an end sooner than we'd like, but that doesn't mean we've seen the last of Westeros!

Over the weekend, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss confirmed a few rumors about the final two seasons of the Emmy-winning series — along with any future shows that might be adapted from the fucked up mind of George R.R. Martin.

Appearing at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas, Weiss and Benioff took part in a Q&A hosted by Stark sisters Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams.

During the sit down, the producers confirmed Ed Sheeran would be making an appearance in the upcoming season, and revealed that the final eighth season would only be six episodes long.

But that tragic news came with a silver lining when the writers were asked about the show's future, as the dynamic duo suggested a Westerosi spin-off was likely to happen.

Addressing speculation around a potential spin-off involving the surviving characters, they said:

Game Of Thrones Showrunners May Be Faking Season 7 Set Leaks To Throw Off Spoilers! Ugh!

no title

Hold the phone door…

The set of Game Of Thrones has been particularly leaky during the filming of Season 7, and we haven't been complaining!

Over the past week, photos emerged from the Zumaia set on Itzurun beach showing spoiler-y scenes of Jon Snow meeting with some MAJOR characters.

While the leaks are a treat for those who want info on the HBO fantasy hit months ahead of time, there's a small chance some photos and video from set won't actually reflect what's in the show!

That's right. Some of these new "spoilers" can very well be staged by the producers so they can misdirect the show's passionate fandom!

That happened to be the case last year when photographers snapped pics of former GoT actor
