YES! HBO Developing 4 Different ‘Game Of Thrones’ Spinoffs – The Internet Gives Killer Titles
Our joy will turn to ashes when Game of Thrones ends in only 13 episodes. But thank the Old Gods and the New! Our hopes, dreams, and prayers for a Game of Thrones spinoff have been answered! And there is a possibility that we could get multiple spinoffs!
HBO is working on four different spinoffs of the massively successful fantasy show to “explore different time periods of George R. R. Martin’s vast and rich universe.” They have already hired four writers to develop possible spinoffs, prequels or sequels.
- Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island, Fox’s Minority Report)
- Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class)
- Brian Helgeland (A Knight’s Tale, L.A. Confidential)
- Carly Wray (Mad Men)
Game of Thrones creator and author George R.R. Martin will work with Goldman and Wray, which means he’ll never finish any more books.
But don’t get too excited just yet because this sounds like it will be many winters before the projects see the light of day.
“There is no set timetable for these projects,” the network said. “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.”
HBO did not verify that they would definitely pick up any of the spinoffs let alone all four.
As far as showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, HBO said this:
“Weiss and Benioff continue to work on finishing up the seventh season and are already in the midst of writing and preparing for the eighth and final season. We have kept them up to date on our plans and they will be attached, along with George R. R. Martin, as executive producers on all projects. We will support them as they take a much-deserved break from writing about Westeros once the final season is complete.”
Once news broke of the possible spinoffs the internet did what the internet does – make hilarity. The hashtag #GameofThronesSpinoffs was launched.
Game of Thrones Season 7 starts up on July 16.
