One Game of Thrones Spinoff Has Already Been 'Shelved'

  • George R R Martin wants to call the series The Long Night

One of those has been shelved, I am given to understand, and of course Jane's pilot is now moving to film.

Those who have read the books will have immediately made the connection that the show will likely be about The Long Night, an event that supposedly occurred in Westeros thousands of years before the events showed in Game of Thrones. Martin writes that only three of those four spinoffs "remain in active development".

Martin went on to sing the praise of potential showrunner Goldman (who has written the pilot script) saying: "All of the news stories about the pilot being greenlit are slapping my own picture up there next to Jane's, which is very flattering but also a little misleading".

Martin does not say which one has been shelved.

However, they didn't stop there, in fact there was up to five different spin-offs in the works with HBO.

HBO has already confirmed that there will be as many as five prequels to Game of Thrones. "My vote would be The Long Night, which says it all, but I'd be surprised if that's where we end up", he wrote.

Martin isn't wrong. So far, Goldman's series is the only certainty thanks to an official pilot order.

"Yes, this is a prequel, not a sequel". "We do have an entire world and tens of thousands of years of history to play with, after all". He wanted to reiterate that none of Throne's current characters would be appearing in the spinoff that's been greenlit, since it's a prequel, mining the same universe but going hundreds of years in the past. We're very early in the process, of course, with the pilot order just in, so we don't have a director yet, or a cast, or a location, or even a title. "More likely HBO will want to work the phrase "game of thrones" in there somewhere". I've consulted with all of the writers on all of the successor shows, and several of them have visited me in Santa Fe for long days of discussion, and we've gone back and forth in email, text, and telephone, so I have definitely been involved. but really, the accolades here should go to Jane. "She has been an absolute thrill to work with. and my god, what a talent".

The branding of Game of Thrones has been a goldmine for the premium cable channel, so it's a good bet they would want to make use of it with their next series in the franchise. It's possible that the pilot episode for this untitled series won't even start filming until sometime next year, although there hasn't been a confirmed production schedule in place yet. But the story of the detailed world built by almost-septuagenarian author George RR Martin will not end anytime soon.
