HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is just on the verge of finishing its final season, but recent news says not to be disheartened as not one but three spinoffs of this show are in development.
George R.R. Martin believes in the term “successor of the show” rather than calling it a spinoff.
According to CNN, George R.R., the author of the book upon which the show is based, says- “We have had five different GAME OF THRONES successor shows in development (I dislike the term “spinoffs”) at HBO, and three of them are still moving forward nicely.
It seems that HBO may not just stick with that project. Martin reveals that two projects are in development and while they are on its script page, they are coming closer to something which is beyond words on the page.
There’s still no hard announcement as to when is it going to be released but Martin suggested to read a copy of “Fire and Blood” and come up with own theories.
Martin calls the series “The Long Night” created by himself along with screenwriter Jane Goldman. The series’s synopsis tells that it had happened thousands of years before the Game of Thrones event. But from the horrifying secrets of Westeros history to the origin of White Walkers, it is not the story we know.
Last year in an interview with the New York Times, Martin said “It is set about thousands of years ago before the Game of Thrones series. The King’s Landing does not exist, the throne of Iron does not exist and no dragons.”
Until now we can just sit and watch the final series of “Game of Thrones.” The final episode of the series will be airing on May 20.
