HBO Wants ‘Game of Thrones’ Spinoff: “It’s About Finding the Right Take”

“In a perfect world, Game of Thrones would keep going and we wouldn’t have to deal with any of this,” Bloys told The Hollywood Reporter. But he sees an opportunity to keep the franchise going with a spinoff. “There are so many properties and areas to go to,” he said. “For us, it’s about finding the right take with the right writer.”

Bloys clarified that HBO is not actively developing any further Game of Thrones series at the moment. “Not yet,” he said. But it sounds like they’ve at least started to toss some ideas around. “There are things that sound interesting, but at this point, we have no writers assigned or anything like that.”

For his part, Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin seems open to the idea of a spinoff, though he’s stopped short of confirming anything.

I do have thousands of pages of fake history of everything that led up to Game of Thrones. There’s a wealth of material there, and I’m still writing more, but at the moment, we still have this show to finish, and I still have two books to finish. So, that’s all speculation.

Should have seen this coming. GoT is their biggest show ever, of course they want to keep the series alive some how. I'm not sure if I would be interested in a prequel type story, but I am sure I would watch regardless.

A story focusing on the wall and life of the Night's Watch might be cool. Or a prequel type series about the conquest of Westeros.

I would like to see the life and journey of Hodar. Maybe get his own show.

They could literally do three things:

1. Dunk and Egg
2. The Hedge Knight
3. Do GOT again, but this time just do the stories they fucking omitted from the book.

'Game of Thrones' Prequel Series Still In Talks, HBO Says
HBO has never made a prequel or spinoff series from one of its scripted hits. But Game of Thrones could change that.

The network’s programming president Casey Bloys confirms HBO is still talking to author George R.R. Martin about ideas for a follow-up to the international Emmy-winning hit series, which is seen by more than 20 million viewers.

'Game of Thrones' Forever: HBO Developing 4 Different Spinoffs

developing four different ideas from different writers. The move represents a potentially massive expansion of the popular fantasy universe created by author George R.R. Martin. If greenlit, the eventual show or shows would also mark the first time HBO has ever made a follow-up series to one of its hits.

HBO isn’t revealing any story details at this time other than that the shows “explore different time periods of George R. R. Martin’s vast and rich universe.”

I'm not sold on this, but I am also not a huge Westros history nut
