Game Of Thrones Ned Stark Sean Bean

Earlier this month it was revealed that four different Game of Thrones spinoffs were being developed, with four writers being brought in to work on the potential new series with author George R.R. Martin.

Martin recently wrote a lengthy blog post about the announcement, in which he shared that since the news surfaced, a fifth potential spinoff with a not yet announced mystery writer has also come into play. Martin also revealed two popular inspirations for spinoffs that, as it turns out, are not being developed. And he shared that he’s not a big fan of the “spinoff” description, preferring to call them “successors,” and why he feels that way.

See what he had to say below.

‘Game Of Thrones’: Four Spinoffs Being Developed By HBO

Game of Thrones - Children of the Forest

Some type of spinoff to HBO’s Game of Thrones has been expected since we the fans, and especially HBO, realized how big of a hit it was. The world that the “Song of Ice and Fire” series is set in runs so very deep with history, it can be overwhelming to try to take it all in. It would be crazy not to bring some of those other stories to life. There’s a wealth of great tales to be told—especially ones that happened before the events of the show—such as Robert’s Rebellion, the Children of the Forest (seen above), the fall of the city of Valyria, and so many more. That’s why it was no great shock to find out that, after the main series wraps up, a prequel was more likely than a spinoff.

Now comes news even more exciting than just a potential prequel. It’s being reported that not one, but FOUR different potential Game of Thrones spinoffs are now being developed, and four writers have signed on to work on them along with George R.R. Martin.

Game Of Thrones Season 6.3 young Ned Stark

We’re speeding toward the end of Game of Thrones (*sniffle*), and that’s something we just have to accept (knock it off, you promised yourself you wouldn’t cry). But while the end of the main series begins to come into view, anyone who has been paying attention knows that this is more than likely not the end of our time in Westeros and the surrounding areas.

For a while now we’ve been hearing about the potential for a spinoff series, which would focus on other stories set in other times. Those familiar with author George R.R. Martin‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” world know there’s an incredible amount of history there, much of which would make for some great TV. HBO’s president of programming Casey Bloys talked about this recently, saying it would more likely be a prequel series than a spinoff. He also revealed that season eight of the current show, the final season, could end up being a little longer than previously believed.

See what he had to say below.

Many fans of HBO’s Game of Thrones who aren’t familiar with author George R.R. Martin‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series go into each new episode terrified at the thought that one of their favorite characters could be dead without warning before the credits roll. This is something fans of the books obviously do not have to worry about…not until now anyway.

Martin made a surprise appearance at the Writers Guild West Awards recently, where he revealed a shocking bit of information: characters are going to die in Game of Thrones Season 5 who do not die in his books.

Weird Al Takes On ‘Game Of Thrones’ Theme Song At The Emmys (Video)

Weird Al Yankovic Emmy Awards 2014 Game Of Thrones theme song with Andy Samberg

Weird Al Yankovic performed at tonight’s Emmy Awards where he took on several popular television theme songs, one of which was Game Of Thrones. The parody master created lyrics for the popular HBO series, adding in parts about poison wine, paying attention to the introductory maps, and the need for author George R.R. Martin — whose A Song Of Ice and Fire novels are the basis for the TV show — to type faster.

SNL‘s Andy Samberg joined Yankovic on stage dressed as King Joffrey, but he eventually made his way into the audience where Martin was seated, handing him an old-fashioned typewriter as Yankovic and his background singers implored the writer to type faster.

‘Game Of Thrones’ Mountain Becomes Incredible Hulk For Kid’s B-Day, Lifts 1,000 lbs (Videos)

Halfthor Bjornsson as "The Mountain," Ser Gregor Clegane

Ser Gregor Clegane, or “The Mountain That Rides,” is a monster…in more ways than one, as anyone who’s read George R.R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series or watched HBO’s Game of Thrones can tell you. The character has been played by three different actors over the course of the series, the most recent being Hafthor Bjornsson, a physical specimen out of Iceland. But unlike the character he’s playing, Hafthor is not a monster at all (at least not intentionally—let’s face it, at 6 ft 9 in tall and 421 lbs, you’re gonna be f’n terrifying from time to time whether you mean to or not).

Bjornsson went all out for one three-year-old’s birthday party, getting his entire body painted to make him look like The Incredible Hulk. Despite being a fan of the Marvel superhero, the child was quite frightened (because see above), but Hafthor took photos with whoever was willing to get close enough.

You can see a video of the Incredible Hulk transformation and birthday party appearance below, plus a bonus video of Hafthor deadlifting almost 1,000 lbs, which is why he gets to be The Mountain and Hulk.

Game of Thrones Iron Throne

It’s undeniable that Game of Thrones is one of HBO’s greatest successes, both critically and ratings wise. But all great things must come to an end eventually, so of course it’s getting to the point where fans will start to worry when it will be decided to end the show.

Worry no more. At least not for a little bit anyway. It has been announced that HBO has given the greenlight for not only season five of the hit series based on George R.R. Martin‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series, but also a season six!

For many years there were attempts at adapting George R.R. Martin‘s “A Song of Ice and Fire” book series into a movie or movies. Thankfully for us TV jumped to cinematic levels on channels like HBO, who gave the books the adaptation they deserved with the hit fantasy drama Game of Thrones.
