1 of 5 Game of Thrones spin-offs cancelled
The writer is headed to Amazon instead.
1 of the proposed 5 Game of Thrones spin-offs has been cancelled by HBO.
The series was being planned by Bryan Cogman, but he has now confirmed in an interview that HBO has pulled out of the project.
“My prequel show is not happening and will not happen. HBO decided to go a different way.”
Cogman was the writer for the most recent episode of the show, ‘A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms’ but will now not return to work on the franchise further.
Basically nothing was known about his plans for a spin-off, other than creator George R.R. Martin describing it as “set during a very exciting period of Westerosi history”.
The series was 1 of 5 planned for when the main show goes off the air in just a few weeks.
One, which is titled The Long Night, is currently in production and is being created by Jane Goldman with Naomi Watts starring.
Cogman has recently signed a deal with Amazon, so it’s unlikely that he’ll be working on any Thrones-related content in the near future.
