Game of Thrones was a memorable experience for both the fans and the show’s crew. Rarely do we see a TV show achieve massive popularity as Game of Thrones did in the last decade. Many of the show’s crew have moved on to new projects, including showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. They are working on a new Netflix show, The Chair, along with Killing Eve star Sandra Oh. The Chair is co-produced and co-created by Benioff’s wife, the actress Amanda Peet, and is officially set to premiere on Netflix on Friday, August 27.
The premiere date was announced in a teaser posted on Netflix’s social media, recapping the show’s plot. Oh plays Professor Ji-Yoon Kim, the first female and woman of colour hired as the head of Pembroke University’s English department. Check out the teaser below:
The Pembroke Daily news clipping teases that Professor Kim’s hiring may have come “179 years too late”, but it also may be “a last-ditch effort” to save a department seen by the school as a “sinking ship”.
David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are also involved in a project that includes veteran actor Hugh Jackman. Are you excited about The Chair? Talk to us in the comments below!
Game of Thrones ended nearly two years ago. The cast and crew of the show have moved on to new ventures. Most have started working on new filming projects, like Richard Madden and Aidan Gillen. Some have done theatre for a change like Emilia Clarke and Indira Varma. While some, like Maisie Williams, have started their own podcasts.
Maisie Williams has launched her own film podcast, Frank Film Club. The Frank Film Club is a place where you don’t have to study film to have an opinion. The Game of Thrones actress’ new show takes a deep dive into cinema through the lens of four young women in the industry covering a wide range of genres: from pre-2000s to independent and box office, to documentaries and foreign language.
Frank Film Club (in a nutshell) is a film club for people who love films but get flustered when asked to articulate why – anything goes and everyone’s welcome! @frankfilmclub

Every Tuesday and Friday the hosts watch a film and get together to discuss their individual takes. Season one will cover ﬁlms such as Pixar’s Soul, Boots Riley’s Sorry To Bother You and Ridley Scott’s Thelma And Louise.
“We really wanted to make a space where there’s no pressure to speak about film in a certain way, where we could be ourselves and enjoy the freedom of the discussion,” said Williams. “Frank Film Club is a place where you didn’t have to study film to have an opinion. We’re so grateful and excited to share it with listeners everywhere.”
