    HBO to Develop ‘Game of Thrones’ Spinoffs

    “Game of Thrones” is closing in on its final two seasons, but HBO is not going to give up on Westeros.

    The premium cable channel announced in a statement Thursday that it was developing scripts to spin off the series that will “explore different time periods of George R.R. Martin’s vast and rich universe.”

    There are only 13 episodes left in HBO’s hit series, which the network is breaking up into two seasons — seven this year, and six next year.

    For months, HBO has been in talks with Mr. Martin, the author of the “Game of Thrones” novels, about spinning off the story once the drama wraps up. There is a playbook for this: AMC rolled out a prequel, “Better Call Saul,” after its successful drama “Breaking Bad” went off the air in 2013.

    It also qualifies as a no brainer: “Game of Thrones” has won best drama Emmy each of the last two years, and it is, by far, the network’s most popular show. HBO draws revenue from subscriptions — both on cable and its digital-only offerings — and future seasons of “Thrones” will be catnip to subscribers who have signed up for the series.

    What am I missing? I've never seen even one episode of GoT. Does it really merit a spin off?

    I can't imagine anyone would be surprised by this. The backstories could potentially be better than the current series and there is a lot of material to work with.

    Won't find it on Netflix, my brother.

    It's HBO exclusive (as are most HBO-related content).

    theyll probably go back way further than that. But it would be cool at some point to see the era of the "mad king" an all his insane behavior.....

    Aegons conquest, Roberts Rebellion, The First Men and an expansion of Dunk and Egg are the ones people have been speculating about. Aegons conquest and Roberts Rebellion seem to be the most likely.

    I have been expecting one for a while, maybe 2 depending if they were cutting budgets big time and just milking the brand. May still be the case.

    4 is surprising.

    Let me take a stab at what they will be.

    Hmm

    Robert's Rebellion is the obvious and most likely to get made.

    Aegon's Conquest of Westeros

    Dance of the Dragons

    Dunk and Egg

    Blackfyre Rebellion

    Ninepenny Kings

    2 of those 6, or HBO will make original content.
