There are five Game of Thrones spin-offs (George RR Martin likes to call them successor series) currently in development for HBO. Some of them are reportedly being set in Westeros, home to the Iron Throne. It seems various writers, including GRRM pitched their ideas and this is what we know as of now.
What Do We Know About These Five Game of Thrones Spin-Offs?
Back in May, Martin confirmed this news on his blog. Says Martin, “Every one of the concepts under discussion is a prequel, rather than a sequel”. Westeros may not even be a part of them. Other highlights include:
“Yeah, I think I can say if I was able to say what mine was — yeah, I think as a book reader or as someone who watched the series, you would say, ‘Oh, that! OK.’ Yeah, it would be recognizable as a past event, but I think that’s probably as far as I can go.”
What can that be? The life of Bran the Builder? The Doom of Valyria perhaps? Or About the Children of the Forest and First Men?
One piece of good news is that Game of Thrones has teased a prequel on Game of Thrones animated history series and the clip features a part of the Targaryen conquest of Westeros. It will be made available with the release of Game of Thrones Season 7 DVD and Blu-Ray for limited edition starting Dec 12, 2017.
