Despite the fact that the fandom STILL seems to be annoyed with Game of Thrones over how it ended, HBO is moving full-stream ahead with their various Thrones-related projects, as The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the network is now developing three more spin-offs.
First, under the working title 9 Voyages and from ‘Rome’ creator Bruno Heller is a series about Lord Corlys Velaryon, a.k.a. The Sea Snake. The character also appears in the already greenlit prequel ‘House of the Dragon’ Dragon
Then, under the working title 10,000 Ships is a series about warrior queen Princess Nymeria, a House Martell ancestor who founded of the kingdom of Dorne. The story is set roughly 1,000 years before the events in ‘Game of Thrones’
Finally, there’s series set in the notorious King’s Landing slum of Flea Bottom – “the maze of tight streets in the capital city where characters like Davos Seaworth and Gendry Baratheon were born.”
“The way we try to approach it is not by [saying], ‘We need five shows within three years,’ but ‘What are the stories worth telling?'” HBO’s chief content officer Casey Bloys told THR in January. “We’ve been developing multiple takes on different worlds. The one I want to do is the one that I think is best creatively. I prefer to make it about the stories and the showrunners and their vision as opposed to hitting some arbitrary target for the right number of shows.”
In addition to these three series are the previously greenlit House of the Dragon, Tales of Dunk and Egg, and an animated series. House of the Dragon, which will be the first Game of Thrones spin-off to hit HBO when it releases in 2022.
That series, which stars Paddy Considine, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, and Matt Smith, is set 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones and will follow the House Targaryen civil war.
Co-created by Martin and Ryan Condal, the series’ first season — which will be helmed by Miguel Sapochnik, who is known for directing iconic Game of Thrones episodes such as “Hardhome,” “Battle of the Bastards,” and “Winds of Winter” — will consist of ten episodes.
