There Could Be a 'Game of Thrones' Spin-Off Coming Soon
Rumored to be based around George R. R. Martin’s ‘Tales of Dunk and Egg.’
It was confirmed last year that popular HBO series Game of Thrones will be ending after its eighth season. Now that it’s fast approaching, HBO executives are rumored to be in talks about turning more of George R. R. Martin’s library into television. Casey Bloys, HBO’s president of original programming said during the Television Critics Association press tour, “All I can say is that we’re exploring it. We don’t have any scripts, we’re not even close to saying ‘Oh let’s do this.’ But it’s a big enough property that we would be foolish not to explore it. It’s a really rich world. We’d be foolish not to look at it.”
Some have speculated that the source material for this could be from Martin’s Tales of Dunk and Egg, which is set 90 years before A Song of Ice and Fire. The story follows the journey of Dunk, a future commander of Kingsguard and Egg (the future king Aegon V Targaryen). While there are no concrete details yet, many have been speculating that a GoT prequel will be happening.
