It’s all in the game. As the Game of Thrones TV show heads towards its eighth and final season, HBO is working like a dragon is breathing fire down its neck, in order to set up its five (as of now) potential Game of Thrones spin-offs — specifically in the form of prequel series. Author George R. R. Martin says Bryan Cogman, who has worked his way up the ranks from script coordinator, all the way to supervising producer of the original series has boarded one of the prequels as writer and will share a co-creator credit with none other than Martin, himself.
An HBO fantasy drama, Game of Thrones stars Peter Dinklage, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lena Headey, Emilia Clarke, Aidan Gillen, Kit Harington, Diana Rigg, Sophie Turner, and Maisie Williams. The cast also includes Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Gwendoline Christie, Liam Cunningham, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jerome Flynn, Iain Glen, Isaac Hempstead Wright, Conleth Hill, Kristofer Hivju, Hannah Murray, Carice van Houten, Indira Varma, Pilou Asbaek, Rory McCann, and Richard Dormer. Based on Martin’s best-selling book series — A Song of Ice and Fire — Game of Thrones is an epic story of treachery and nobility.
According to a recent Facebook post, Martin says fans may expect two or three of the Game of Thrones project make it to the pilot stage. As of now, he expects at least one of these to make it series to air, and that it will air in 2019 or 2020. Check it out.
