‘Game of Thrones’ might spawn new HBO shows

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is in its home stretch. But the game isn’t over for its cre­ator, George R.R. Martin, who is in the thick of plan­ning as many as five new “Game of Thrones”-re­lated se­ries for the net­work. Post­ing on his web­site, Martin spec­i­fied that each con­cept un­der devel­op­ment is for a pre­quel, not a se­quel. He in­di­cated any of the new se­ries would be pop­u­lated with fresh char­ac­ters. He noted that it re­mains to be seen how many of the pi­lot scripts cur­rently be­ing writ­ten will ac­tu­ally be filmed, and how many se­ries might re­sult from those filmed pi­lots. He says he is work­ing with the writ­ers. Just 13 episodes re­main for “Game of Thrones,” which HBO is split­ting into two fi­nal sea­sons. It re­turns in July.
