Game of Thrones fans will be thrilled to hear a spin-off of the show is coming out! The famous spirit of the show will then continue to exist in a new series.
HBO has affirmed the news that writers along with George RR Martin, Game of Thrones’ Creator, are brainstorming ideas for a spin-off.
A spin-off is a high possibility specially that Game of Thrones is waving goodbye to its audience as the series will soon come to an end. To make the speculations ever more true, HBO has stated on Thursday that a couple of writers are looking for ideas.
“We’ll take as much or as little time as the writers need and, as with all our development, we will evaluate what we have when the scripts are in,” HBO’s spokesperson said.
On top of Martin, writers such as Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Brian Helgeland (Mystic River), Jane Goldman (Kingsman, Kick-Ass), and Carly Wray (Mad Men) will join the team.
Currently, Game of Thrones’ producers, Dan Weiss and David Benioff, will keep doing their production work but will not be involved in the writing of the spin-off.
“I think HBO might well do one and I’m looking forward to watching it. I think it’ll be great, but I think it’s better for them to get new blood in with new visions,” Benioff commented.
“There are 8m stories in Westeros… and even more in Essos and the lands beyond. A whole world full of stories, waiting to be told,” Martin remarked on the offshoot.
Followed by people from all around the world, Game of thrones is the most watched series in the history of HBO. It started in 2011 and will end pretty soon. The show is based on Martin’s best-selling book “A Song of Ice and Fire.”
