In conversation with meetingHBO exec Francesca Orsi has opened up about the growing Game of Thrones franchise, confirming that there are indeed others game of Thrones Spin-offs currently in development. However, she did concede that none of them are “real candidates for the green light for production” as potential projects are still in a state where they are “new and nascent” and “not even have many scripts yet.” .
One of the unannounced projects could be a prequel about the conquest of Aegon I Targaryen, set 300 years before the events of the main series. It was to follow Aegon and his sister-wives Visenya and Rhaenys and their dragons in conquering six of the seven kingdoms of Westeros, making Aegon I the first king of the land.
HBO’s upcoming Game of Thrones projects
After Season 8 of Game of Thrones ended in 2019, HBO placed a series order for the series adaptation of George RR Martin’s novel Fire and Blood, titled House of the Dragon, which is currently in its second season. The series currently stars Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Emma D’Arcy, Rhys Ifans, Eve Best and more.
In addition to the upcoming second season of House of the Dragon, the network also recently ordered A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight, based on Martin’s novella Dunk and Egg. However, due to the ongoing WGA strike, pre-production on the series has been temporarily halted until the strike comes to a fair conclusion.
It was also revealed last year that Kit Harington and Martin are developing a Jon Snow sequel, in which the Emmy nominee will reprise his fan-favorite GOT role. Fans last saw Jon Snow in the GOT series finale, where he was sent back to the Night’s Watch as punishment for killing Daenerys Targaryen. However, an official series order from HBO is not yet available.
