“It’s been an extraordinary pleasure to work with the exceptionally talented Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, as well as their gifted cast and crew,” president of HBO programming, Casey Bloys, said in a statement. “From the inspired storytelling to the incredible visuals, we are so excited to see where the next chapter will take us.”
