It’s official now that HBO is working on Game of Thrones spinoff.
Yes we all wanted that and now it’s official.
Game of thrones is HBO’s biggest show with a huge fan base and is too popular to just leave on the shelf after the final season ends in 2018.
Variety reports that HBO has inked deals with four writers “to explore multiple possible Game of Thrones spinoffs.”
The four writers which are working on Game of Thrones spinoffs are:
- Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Golden Circle, X-Men: First Class)
- Carly Wray (Mad Men, The Bastard Executioner)
- Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential, Mystic River)
- Max Borenstein (Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island)
The channel says that there is no timeline for development of the projects. “We’ll take as much or as little time as the writers need and, as with all our development, we will evaluate what we have when the scripts are in,” a HBO spokesperson said.
Game of Thrones showrunners and executive producers David Benioff and Dan Weiss will be “attached” to the four projects, as will author George R.R. Martin, although none of them will do any actual writing.
Goldman and Wray will even work directly with Martin on their projects. George R.R. Martin a couple of months back wrote that he was involved with ‘lots of stuff with HBO that I cannot talk about yet.”
Now let us see what can be the potential spinoff of Game of Thrones
- 10 Game of Thrones Prequel Series Ideas which can be used as Game of Thrones Spinoff.
- George R.R. Martin’s history of Westeros : History of Westeros will be a prequel and can be as wild as the ongoing season and will be even more engaging.
- While in Austin for SXSW, David Benioff implied that he and Weiss probably wouldn’t be involved in any spinoff or prequel series. “I think it’s better for them to get new blood in with new visions.” So the fact they’re “attached” to the new projects is a little surprising. Of course, “attached” can mean anything. It may be a very light, consultative role.
- A petition to turn Robert’s Rebellion into a prequel series gained thousands of signatures last year. So focusing on Only Rebellion might be a good idea.
Whatever story line they decide, we all will be eagerly waiting for it.
