In just 2 weeks, Game of Thrones will be finished. Over. Done. Or will it?
HBO programming president Casey Bloys said their plan is to develop several options.
George R.R. Martin is ostensibly working on finishing the Song of Ice and Fire book series that birthed the GoT. He updated fans Saturday on his personal blog. Martin wrote,
“We have had five different GAME OF THRONES successor shows in development (I dislike the term ‘spinoffs’) at HBO, and three of them are still moving forward nicely.
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. What are they about? I cannot say. But maybe some of you should pick up a copy of FIRE & BLOOD and come up with your own theories.”
Martin published Fire & Blood, a history of Westeros, the setting for GoT, last year.
Variety reported last in October that Naomi Watts is set to star in one which will start shooting soon. In the series, which chronicles the fictional world’s first clash with the White Walkers thousands of years before the events of GoT, Watts’ character is,
“a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret.”
But, most importantly, ARE THERE DRAGONS!?
