All 6 Game of Thrones films are in development
Game of Thrones is over, but audiences are back in Westeros for House of the Dragon — HBO has six more Game of Thrones spinoffs in development.
Game of Thrones may have ended 2019, but that won't be the last viewers will see of Westeros, as HBO has at least six Game of Thrones spinoffs in addition to the successful House of the Dragon in development. Based on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, Game of Thrones went on to become the biggest television show in the world for eight seasons in the 2010s, so it's no surprise that the network is looking to expand the Thrones series with a new game. Game of Thrones season 8 proved extremely divisive, but the world is still full of small-screen potential. Here are all the new Game of Thrones shows currently in development.
As the streaming wars continue, having a trusted property becomes increasingly important. That's why Disney+ has a slew of Marvel and Star Wars programming planned, and while Game of Thrones hasn't hit that level of popularity -- and neither has HBO's plans -- it's what it has to offer existing or potential subscribers. One of the most important things to offer. It’s not just meaningful on a corporate level, though, as there are countless stories that can Told from the universe Martin created thanks to his rich, detailed worldbuilding. It remains to be seen how many new Game of Thrones shows there will end up being, but here's what HBO has planned for the new Game of Thrones series.
The Jon Snow Sequel Series
In June 2022, HBO announced a new Game of Thrones series centered around Kit Harington's Jon Snow after he betrayed and murdered Daenerys Exiled beyond the Great Wall. Given his own Targaryen heritage, and the general belief that he would have been king under the more monarchy-driven system of the Seven Kingdoms, there's a lot to explore about his bittersweet farewell beyond the Wall The place. Chances of bringing the rest of the beloved Stark family back - maybe once Arya sorts out the west of Westeros - and obviously a chance to offer more Tormund's giant-bane content as he's Joan The central figure in En's wildling comrades-in-arms team.
Tales of Dunk & Egg
In January 2021, it was reported that a new Game of Thrones show based on George R.R. Martin's series of novellas, The Legend of Slam Dunk and Iger, was in the early stages of development. There were three Dunk & Egg stories published, so far: "Hedge Knight", "Oath Sword" and "Mystery Knight". Set some 90 years before the events of Game of Thrones, the story is lighter and less epic than the main series, but just as entertaining. The series follows Dunk, a hedge knight who eventually becomes Ser Duncan the Tall, Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, and his squire Egg, who will one day rule Westeros as King Aegon V. Martin plans to publish anywhere from six to 12 novellas, and has previously played down the idea of adapting the books before they're finished, since he first went on to write The Winds of Winter, which is a long way off.
The Golden Empire and Game of Thrones Animated Spinoff
Two adult animated Game of Thrones spinoffs have been in early development since January 2021. The animated "History and Legends" DVD and Blu-ray add-on detail the history of Westeros, so Game of Thrones already has some ground, although the show will obviously have a larger scope. The second show is based on the Yidi Dynasty of Essos, George R.R. Martin's version of Imperial China (fans were happy to hear this was mentioned in House of the Dragon). Given the quantity With the special effects work involved in making Game of Thrones, it's easy to see why an animated show is an attractive prospect for HBO, as it makes it easier to bring heavy CGI elements like dragons and direwolves to the screen.
The Sea Snake
Another new Game of Thrones series is in development, and Sea Serpent is actually a possible spinoff. The show will revolve around Corlys Velaryon, aka the Sea Serpent, played by Steve Toussaint in House of the Dragon. HBO clearly wants him to be a breakout figure, developing a series around his voyages. The sea serpent has traveled farther across the ocean than most people can imagine, not only visiting the Essos region familiar to Game of Thrones viewers, but also visiting more unknown places like Eda, amassing incredible wealth along the way . Bryan Heller of Rome, who co-created HBO, was part of the creative team.
Another Game of Thrones spinoff in development is The Tale of Nymeria, Princess of the River Ron. Roughly 1,000 years before the events of Game of Thrones, Roynar was destroyed by the Valyrian Freehold, leading Nymeria to lead her people to safety and freedom. She is said to have commanded 10,000 ships Sailing up the Rhone and away from Essos, while the figure may be exaggerated, it was clearly an incredible amount and journey.
Nymeria and her fleet travel long years in search of a new haven, fleeing Naath due to illness, and eventually settle in Dorne. Nymeria was married to Lord Morse Martell and together they fought to establish rule over Dorne, eventually turning it into a Game of Thrones duchy with princes and princesses as rulers Not kings and queens. The story of Nymeria is one of the most legendary in Westeros history, and is related to Arya's direwolf, who is named after the princess. Amanda Segel of Person of Interest will write 10,000 ships, but other creative teams have yet to be confirmed.
Flea Bottom Was Canceled
The Red Castle in King's Landing is usually the main focus of the show, but another area of it was supposed to take center stage in the Game of Thrones spinoff, Flea Den, a slum that is home to most of the city's brothels, even Less - than salty drinking establishments. It's known for its poverty and crime, but was also the scene of several key power games Character origins, including Davos Seaworth and Gendry. It's unclear exactly what story Flea Bottom will tell, as it's more original than based on Martin's previous work, but it means there are plenty of avenues that could go down and show a different side of life in Westeros. HBO is apparently eyeing all possible territories for a Game of Thrones spinoff, but decided to cancel this particular one for unknown reasons.
Why Bloodmoon Was Canceled
In summer 2018, HBO announced that they were producing a new Game of Thrones series, set 8,000 years before the events of its predecessor. The project, titled "Blood Moon," was supposed to be directed by screenwriter Jane Goldman ("Kick Ass") and star Naomi Watts. The series was supposed to chronicle The Long Night and introduce the White Walkers in the earliest stages. Then, the show was abruptly dropped from HBO's slate -- but why? The network's main focus is how the show's content stacks up against Game of Thrones in terms of popularity based on its themes.
In short, when it comes to what was previously written about the era, there is very little that can be done Heroes and the long night. In the novels of George R.R. Martin, "The Long Night" is usually mentioned in passing, at best as a dodgy legend. The final season of Game of Thrones was met with backlash, and starting with season 5, the series began to dwindle. Rather than repeat the mistakes of "Blood Moon" by making up a new story, the show creators decided to go the other way, adapting "Fire and Blood," an established story covering the Targaryen Civil War, which has now adopted "Dragon House" form.
The Game Of Thrones Spinoffs Have Started Well
House of the Dragon smashed HBO's viewing records and even caused the HBO Max service to crash at launch. The first season consists of 10 gripping episodes, chronicling the beginning of the end for the mighty House Targaryen. If House of the Dragon is proof of anything, it's that audiences are hungry for more Game of Thrones content -- and the studio has already started. The new Game of Thrones show is already making waves, attracting fans old and new. The Game of Thrones spinoff, while more insular than its parent, has set the standard for every spinoff since. since House of the Dragon has had such a successful run so far, which is good news for all new Game of Thrones spinoffs.
