George R.R. Martin Confirms 5th ‘Game Of Thrones’ Spinoff With Mystery Writer

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’ Prequel Series More Likely Than Spinoff; Season 8 Could Be Longer

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.

George R.R. Martin Announces ‘Wild Cards’ TV Series

Wild Cards

Once upon a time, when Game of Thrones was still new, it was reported that a movie based on another one of “A Song of Ice and Fire” author George R.R. Martin‘s works, Wild Cards, was in the works through Syfy Films, the joint venture of Syfy and Universal Pictures. But the years past and nothing came of it.

Wild Cards is a massive alternate history superhero shared universe, consisting of standalone novels, anthologies, comics, games, and more, from Martin, Melinda Snodgrass, and many others. So trying to find a single movie in all of that was an understandably tricky task. Now Martin has announced that a new attempt at adapting the property is in the works, this time as a TV series.

A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms Header

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (A Song of Ice and Fire)
Hardcover | Kindle Edition | Audible
Written by George R.R. Martin
Illustrated by Gary Gianni
Bantam Press
Release Date: October 6th, 2015

Dunk was a squire turned knight 100 years before the events in A Game of Thrones. He had just buried his hedge knight before striking out to seek his fortune (or at least a steady roof and meal). He encounters Egg, a weird little bald boy who pushes to become his squire. After naming himself Ser Duncan the Tall (rumored to be related to Brienne of Tarth), they head to a tourney at Ashford Castle, where Dunk has one shot to win or lose his armor, thus ending his short, knightly career. The tourney has competitions between such names as Targaryen, Tully, Lannister, and Baratheon. How could he possibly compete? To top off everything, he gets himself in serious hot water for being chivalrous, plus Egg has a giant secret. And that is just the beginning of A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms by George R.R. Martin.

More below (a few spoilers if you haven’t read yet and plan to).
