As we know, after the success of Game Of Thrones, HBO wants to expand its universe in prequels and sequels. They also want to make an animated series on the materials written by George R.R. Martin. But, like the old Game Of Thrones, we can’t have the same old story about everyone fighting for the power and stronghold and internal politics and conflicting diving everyone. It will not work after 8 seasons of Game Of Thrones.
Right now, HBO is focusing on Game Of Thrones’ three spin-off shows, their working titles are 9 Voyages, House Of Dragons, and 10,000 Ships. The story is interesting for all three shows. Game of Thrones has become a cultural phenomenon. It paved way for courageous and more powerful storytelling. With its complex characters and layered writing, GOT has become one of the best TV shows of this decade. Although the last season disappointed a lot of the show’s fans, the show still remains fresh in the minds of viewers.
Since the show ended, rumors of various spin-offs of different characters from the show regularly manage to become news. Nothing had been certain until a few days ago when HBO confirmed that three spin-offs of GOT are in production. This has gotten the fans of the show very excited.
1. The first one, with the working title of 9 voyages, will be created by Bruno Heller, a filmmaker from Rome. The series will follow the story of Lord Corlys Velaryon, popularly known as Sea Snake. This is a character that didn’t appear on the show and is pretty much unknown to the fans of the show. But the fans of R.R. Martin’s book know Sea Snake as a man full of adventure who lived a dangerous life on the sea.
2. The other series, currently called 10,000 ships, follows the story of Princess Nymeria, a fearless Queen who founds the kingdom of Dorne. In the book, her actions take place before the main event of GOT so it’ll be interesting to see what the creators have in mind. This will again help in expanding the GOT verse.
3. The last and yet untitled series will tell the story of inhabitants of Flea Bottom, a low-class area of King’s landing that’ll tell the story of a few characters that were already seen in GOT. This has gotten the fans most excited as King’s landing was a very interesting place in the GOT series and it’ll be hugely entertaining if the creators can churn out something interesting.
