HBO is not ready to leave Westeros. With Game of Thrones in its final two seasons, the network is looking for ways to continue the story.
To that end HBO has hired writers to begin early work on four possible spinoffs. The writers include Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Brian Helgeland (Legend) and Carly Wray (The Leftovers). Goldman and Wray will work directly with George R.R. Martin.
The network is in no rush to get the series on air.
“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,” said a HBO spokesperson.
Executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will also be involved with the spinoffs, though it is not yet known to what extent.
Season seven of Game of Thrones premieres Sunday, July 16 at 9 pm ET on HBO.
