Will The Game Of Thrones TV Universe Be Expanded With Multiple Animated Series?!

MOVIE NEWS – George R.R. Martin shared an important update on the expansion of the Game of Thrones universe and how the spinoffs will continue the franchise.



George R.R. Martin has finally shared news about the expansion of the Game of Thrones universe before the second season of House of the Dragon arrives on HBO in 2024.

On New Year’s Eve, Martin mentioned on his personal blog that he is working on several animation projects based on the book series A Song of Ice and Fire.

According to him, these have not yet been officially approved. HBO has decided not to proceed with two of the four planned spinoffs. Despite the setbacks, Martin is confident that the remaining animated spinoffs will be given the green light soon. Martin wrote the following: “As it happens, HBO and I have our own animated projects, set in the world of A SONG OF ICE & FIRE. None of them have been greenlit yet, but I think we are getting close to taking the next step with a couple of them. When this last round of development started a few years back, we had four ideas for animated shows, with some great talents attached. Writers rooms and summits, outline and scripts followed in due course… but, alas, two of the original projects were subsequently shelved. Work on the other two animated projects continues apace, however.”

On the other hand, the author mentioned that the Nine Voyages series is now being made as an animated series and not as a live-action project, as initially reported in the news.

He added: “Meanwhile, we have moved NINE VOYAGES, our series about the legendary voyages of the Sea Snake, over from live-action to animation. A move I fully support.” In addition to Nine Voyages, HBO has already confirmed that the next Game of Thrones spinoff will be titled A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight. It will tell the story of Ser Duncan the Tall and his squire, Egg, one hundred years before the original eight-season saga.

HBO is thinking about making the world of Game of Thrones more diverse. But it is not certain that these projects will ever see the light of day. For the uninitiated: a pilot for a live-action spinoff was already filmed, but it was cancelled. This might make Martin more cautious about new spinoffs.

If House of the Dragon season 2 does well, it could increase the chances of other planned spinoffs, such as the promised series about Jon Snow, coming to fruition.

The long-awaited second season of House of the Dragon will premiere on HBO in the summer of 2024. Different factions of House Targaryen will fight against each other. Fans expect the second season to be bigger than the previous one. They can’t wait to see their favourite characters on the screen again!

All seasons of Game of Thrones and Season 1 of House of the Dragon are currently streaming on Max.
