George R.R. Martin signs new five year deal with HBO
The author will work on a mix of different projects including some not related to Game of Thrones.
George R.R Martin has signed a new five year deal with HBO.
Worth somewhere in the mid-eight figure range, it will see the best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire author develop more shows for both the network and its streaming service HBO Max.
These will be in addition to House of the Dragon prequel, a currently untitled animated series and the three other recently announced projects set in the Game of Thrones universe.
The Targaryen family prequel series is the only one of these to have been officially greenlit. The other four are still in the early stages of development.
Martin is also involved as an executive producer in HBO’s upcoming adaptations of Nnedi Okorafor’s award-winning post apocalyptic novel Who Fears Death and the 1979 fantasy novel Roadmarks by Roger Zelazny.
While the Game of Thrones series reached its conclusion in May 2019 with a finale that left millions of fans incredibly disappointed, Martin is still working on the next book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series The Winds of Winter.
All eight seasons of Game of Thrones are available to stream with NOW.
