With HBO’s Emmy-winning fantasy series, Game of Thrones, nearing the end, many fans have been hoping that they’d get a spin-off series. Well, the Seven-faced god has heard their cries and four new shows are being made.
According to Variety, author George RR Martin, who wrote the original books the franchise is built on, is currently working with writers to develop four new shows set in Westeros. Among those writers is said to be Kong: Skull Island‘s Max Borenstein, Kingsman: The Secret Service‘s Jane Goldman, L.A. Confidential‘s Brian Helgeland and Westworld‘s Carly Wray – quite an impressive list of writers.
A spokesperson for HBO said: “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.”
What is guaranteed, at this stage, is that fans can expect a bit more Westeros drama after the eighth and final season airs next year.
