With endless possibilities for a Game of Thrones spinoff, Jimmy Kimmel shows us one very unexpected idea.
Game of Thrones came to an end last Sunday after eight seasons. The week has been spend dissecting, analyzing, and criticizing the finale. But soon that too will all end but fans’ hunger for more Game of Thrones isn’t likely to come to an end.
To satisfy those hungry fans, HBO is already preparing spinoff series based in the universe created by George R.R. Martin. The network certainly understands the popularity and profitability of everything related to Game of Thrones.
As a superfan himself, Jimmy Kimmel is doing his best to help create spinoff ideas. He previously set up a special service to assist confused Game of Thrones fans. And on Monday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! he debuted the trailer for a new show featuring one of the most popular characters from Westeros.
It still won’t be enough for GoT fans. Millions and millions of people are still invested in this world and these characters. Kimmel has responded with another idea that reimagines a fan-favorite character.
Hodor survive a long time north of the Wall with Bran and the Reeds but surviving Kathie Lee may be asking too much of him. The talk show host has been known to be even more wild than any Wildling Hodor may have encountered on his adventures.
Between this and “Full House Lannister,” Kimmel and his writers are working hard to find the comedy in Game of Thrones. They are succeeding and in the process confirming what Jimmy Kimmel Live! fans know: the show loves a good pun and play on words.
The story of Hodor on Game of Thrones was one of the most tragic in the entire series. Although limited to only saying “Hodor,” actor Kristian Nairn turned in a terrific performance. Even in this bit, fans will be happy to get a little more time with Hodor.
We probably haven’t seen the last Game of Thrones spinoff idea from Jimmy Kimmel. Fans won’t complain about it if it means one more glimpse of their favorite character or actor. What do you think Kimmel will come up with next? Let us know in the comments and check back for all the highlights.
