If you starving for updates about some of your favourite HBO shows then rest easy as the Head of Programming at the network, Casey Bloys, recently sat down with reporters to discuss the future of programming with the network. 

With the Riz Ahmed starring The Night Of recently scoring 13 Emmy Nominations, it wouldn't be a stretch to assume that a second season would be a priority for the network. However Bloys confirmed that a second season is on the back burner for now as creator Steve Zallian has yet to even pitch a second season to him. 

What is likely to return to our screens before then is True Detective. Bloys has confirmed that he has thus far read five scripts for the third season which will star Oscar winner Mahershala Ali

"I've read five scripts on the new season and I think they're terrific,"  Bloys said. "When we find a director, we'll be a go on that."

Creator Nic Pizzolatto is of course returning for writing duties but has been given a helping hand by Deadwood creator David Milch. Speaking of Deadwood, Bloys also gave an update on the long awaited movie spinoff of the much loved show. 

"I read the script," he said. "The one thing I was concerned about was that the script would stand on its own. David [Milch] totally delivered on that. It's a terrific script. If we can do a budget that makes sense for us, find a director and get the cast together, we're inclined to do it."

In the same interview, Bloys also said that talks for a Big Little Lies follow up were ongoing and that any Game of Thrones spinoff would wait "at least a year" after the final season before airing.
