Published May 04, 2017HBO is gearing up for the seventh and then final season of Game of Thrones, but the network doesn't want to say goodbye to George R. R. Martin's lucrative fantasy world just yet. Instead, the network have set multiple potential spinoffs into motion.
According to Variety, the network has commissioned scripts from screenwriters Max Borenstein (Godzilla), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Brian Helgeland (Mystic River) and Carly Wray (Mad Men).
While it's not yet clear what the spinoffs will focus on, don't expect Jon Snow to embrace life and love in a Manhattan apartment. Instead, it's more likely that the shows will focus on Game of Thrones prequels and/or some of Martin's other short stories.
Martin has signed on to work with Goldman and Wray on the project.
Speaking with Variety, a spokesperson from HBO said, "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."
Game of Thrones returns to HBO on July 16.
