‘Game Of Thrones’ Spinoffs to be Prequels, Reveals George R. R. Martin
George R.R. Martin has confirmed that the upcoming “Game of Thrones” spinoffs are prequels.
Fans of the popular HBO series, “Game of Thrones” have been waiting for news about the spinoffs and now it seems that the author himself has pitched in by revealing details and information. In his personal blog, George R.R. Martin has revealed that the “Game of Thrones” spinoffs that HBO is working on are prequels.
Even though there is no news or update about “The Winds of Winter,” the author made some revelations about the “Game of Thrones” spinoffs. Notably, HBO is currently working upon them and as reported by ComingSoon.net, the spinoffs, which are prequels, would transpire out of the world that Martin had built for “A Song of Ice and Fire.”
Martin however, wrote in his personal blog that rather than calling it a prequel or spinoffs, he would prefer to call it a successor show and he has also been referring to them with the same name, so far. Moreover, George R.R. Martin has also revealed the authors who are working on the project and revealed the names of the four writers, who are Carly Wray, Jane Goldman, Max Borenstein and Brian Helgeland.
According to reports from Polygon a fifth writer is also expected to be on board. Praising the fifth writer, who is yet to be named, Martin stressed that the writer is extremely passionate about Westeros, just like he is. However, the name will be declared by HBO only after all the formalities are completed.
George R.R. Martin has further confirmed that he will be part of all the four, unlike rumors that suggested that he would be working on only two of them. Before signing off, he also added that the work on “The Winds of Winter” is still going on.
