Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have left Management 360, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The pair, whose HBO fantasy epic recently concluded its eight-season run, continue to be repped by Hansen Jacobson attorney Gretchen Rush as they shop for a new overall TV deal. They are expected to garner interest from multiple outlets given their success with Thrones' early seasons, and sources say HBO remains in the mix to re-sign them — even after the divisive series finale. Perhaps the biggest question mark to seeing Benioff and Weiss signing a rich overall deal is their time constraints, as the duo are writing a new Star Wars trilogy, with the first film due in 2022.

Benioff and Weiss also continue to be repped as directors by CAA.
