HBO CEO Richard Plepler has confirmed that the network is definitely looking at how they can create another television series set in George R.R. Martin’s world of ice and fire, once Game of Thrones ends in 2018. Speaking to Hollywood Reporter, Plepler said that they are currently focusing on finishing the current series but at the same time also looking at various spinoff ideas:

“It certainly has not escaped [HBO president of programming] Casey [Bloys] and myself that there might be some brand extension [for GOT] that would be exciting. It certainly has not escaped the producers. Right now we’re focused on finishing the series with the kind of energy and excitement that everyone has come to expect. We’re going to do that while at the same time parallel processing very embryonic stages of other possibilities.”

  1. I just hope that they don’t go with a prequel that barely predates GOT. Maybe the building of the wall, or Valyrian stories. But my guess will be that they go with the mad king, and fail like the Star Trek, Star Wars, and BSG prequels did.
