HBO on Game of Thrones Prequel: ‘It’d Be Foolish Not to Explore It’

HBO president Casey Bloys recently spoke to EW and revealed that they are actively discussing spinoff possibilities for Game of Thrones:

“It’s such a big property we would be foolish not to explore it, but it’s a pretty high bar. We’ll take some shots at it. I’m not going to do it just to do it. It has to feel very special. I would rather have no sequel and leave it as-is then have something we rushed out.”

Bloys added that a prequel seems a more safer option than a spinoff:

“A prequel feels like it has less pressure on it [than a spin-off]. [Author George R.R. Martin’s history of Westeros] gives you areas in which to say to a writer, ‘If you were going to do this, then go flesh it out,’ and we’ll see what comes back. But I don’t feel any pressure that we have to have something.”

  1. I think these 3 stories are great but they would have to expand them to develop more characters. The two main characters Dunk and Egg are not enough. They could add more to the Targaryen sub-plots like Blood Raven.
