Why HBO Is Working On So Many Game Of Thrones Prequels

Game of Thrones
GETTY • PACKSHOTGeorge RR Martin is working on the next Game of Thrones book

15 July, 2017

Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin will co-write two of the four prequels now in development for after the eight seasons conclude in 2018-2019. You might not be able to book a real-life flight to Westeros, but you can pretend with the help of Kayak.

"I will not be writing the pilot script or adapting Nnedi's novel, and it's doubtful that I will write any episodes should we go to series".

The show features a ton of violence, barrels of blood and sexual content. He also mentioned that he was a fan of a couple of TV shows like "Fargo" and "Better Call Saul" and even suggested checking out "The Last Kingdom" and "Good Girls Revolt".

Later on, Martin even explained why no regular updates were given on TWoW.

It's HBO's most watched series of all time with 25 million people seeing each and every episode.

Then the same report posed the question: "What if delaying season 7 into July was just to get the book released in conjunction with the show?"

There are so many characters to keep track of. When we first are introduced to Gendry, he's working as an apprentice in King's Landing for Tobho Mott, who is one of few armorers who knows how to rework Valyrian steel.

At the end of last season, Daenerys' (Emilia Clarke) dragons and her enormous army were finally on the way to Westeros, where Cersei (Lena Headey) has now become Queen after the death of her children. The plot of the book is expected to focus on another extinction level event- the invasion of White Walkers.

The final two seasons of "Game of Thrones" may not give fans everything they want, but they'll have plenty to look forward to.

Fans have been waiting for more than a year for the seventh season of the show, as the sixth ended in June 2016. And the excitement further ramped up when GRRM recently posted on his blog about Valyria, saying judgment time will descent upon the mighty city soon. Meanwhile, "Game of Thrones" season 7 returns on Sunday, July 16 at 9 p.m. EDT on HBO.
