HBO's mega hit Game of Thrones is back on screens on July 16. But with only 2 seasons and 13 total episodes left it looked like an ending of an era.
But HBO has just closed deals with four different writers to explore multiple possible spinoffs of “Game of Thrones”
The cable channel has said that there is no timeline for development of the projects. “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,” a spokesperson said.
The four writers are Max Borenstein (“Kong: Skull Island”), Jane Goldman (“Kingsman: The Golden Circle”), Brian Helgeland (“Legend”), and Carly Wray (“Mad Men,” “The Leftovers”). Goldman and Wray will each be working individually with novelist and “Game of Thrones” creator George R. R. Martin.
“Game of Thrones” executive producers and showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff will be attached to the four projects, as will Martin, but will not write on any of them.
Thankfully it now looks like the Game of Thrones world of Westeros will be around for quite a bit longer.
