Bill Simmons’ After the Thrones Will Recap Game of Thrones

After the Thrones, a weekly show that takes a lively, humorous and sophisticated look at the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, will debut this month. The first show to spring from HBO’s new partnership with Bill Simmons, After the Thrones will be hosted by Andy Greenwald and Chris Ryan from The Ringer, Simmons’ new content site.

Beginning with the season premiere of Game of Thrones on April 24, each weekly edition of After the Thrones 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.

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.

Greenwald and Ryan previously hosted Grantland’s hit “Watch the Thrones” podcast, and currently host “The Watch” on Channel 33’s podcast feed for The Ringer. Greenwald has established himself as one of America’s premier television critics, and is currently working on the book “How To Watch TV” (Ecco Press). Ryan is the executive editor of The Ringer.

The executive producers of After the Thrones are Bill Simmons and BSMG President Eric Weinberger, with Chris Ryan and Andy Greenwald serving as co-executive producers.
