Thronecast is a British television series on Sky Atlantic which is presented by Sue Perkins and Jamie East. It is an aftershow to Game of Thrones, which also airs on the channels. Each 30-minute show features interviews with members of the cast and crew, interaction with the audience and social media alongside analysis of the previous episode and a preview of the next episode of Game of Thrones. It was the only official aftershow for the American series until HBO aired After the Thrones in 2016.[1]

Thronecast was devised by Koink Productions Ltd for Sky Digital Entertainment. The series began airing online in April 2011 as a series of 10-minute podcasts presented by Geoff Lloyd to correspond with the first season of Game of Thrones. Annabel Port joined Geoff for the second series, which corresponded with the broadcast of the second season. For the third series, Thronecast became a 15-minute on-air show that was broadcast on Sky Atlantic following each episode of the third season, and featured new guest presenter Grace Dent. The fourth series was presented by Jamie East and Rachel Parris, and was 30-minutes long. The fifth series was presented by Sue Perkins and Jamie East and was 30-minutes long, except for the season finale which was an extended hour long special.[2][3] Each series was also made available on Sky Go, Sky Anytime and Sky Anytime+.

Series 1 to 4 of Thronecast were produced by Koink Productions Ltd for Sky Atlantic.

Series 5 of Thronecast was produced by CPL Productions for Sky Atlantic.[4]
