Game Of Thrones Creator Announces 5 New GOT Related Shows
The final season of Game Of Thrones is almost at an end, but fans of the long-running fantasy saga can take heart from the promise of five new spin-off shows.
The HBO show, based on the ongoing series of novels from author George RR Martin, concludes after eight hugely successful seasons in June.
And Martin admits the subscription-only channel is planning to capitalize on its enormous popularity by developing a handful of shows set within the sprawling Game Of Thrones universe.
We have had five different Game Of Thrones successor shows in development (I mislike the term “spinoffs”) at HBO, and three of them are still moving forward nicely,’ he told fans in a personal blog post.
‘The one I am not supposed to call The Long Night will be shooting later this year, and two other shows remain in the script stage, but are edging closer.’
While the author was careful not to reveal plot details, he did admit his latest book, a complete chronological history of the show’s fictional House Targaryen, might offer some clues.
‘What are they about? I cannot say,’ he wrote. ‘But maybe some of you should pick up a copy of Fire And Blood and come up with your own theories.’
