Exciting news for fans of “Games of Thrones.”
HBO has closed deals with four different writers to explore multiple possible spinoffs of the popular show.
The premium cable channel says 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.
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.
A spinoff to “Game of Thrones” — the most watched series in HBO history — has been a source of speculation for years.
Season 7 of “Game of Thrones” is set to premiere July 16.
