‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 spoilers: George R.R. Martin talks about 'Winds of Winter' and spinoffsBy / 2017.05.17
Two weeks had already passed by when the news about HBO considering 4 spin offs of the show "Game of Thrones" went out. The creator of the hit TV show also talks about "Winds of Winter."
As per George R.R. Martin himself, the "Game of Thrones" creator, there is a lot of inaccuracies with the news that broke and since television is a fast business, pretty much all of it is already outdated. Through his favorite medium of communication Live Journal, George R.R. Martin clarified the news that the spin offs won't be sequels but instead prequels. And from four, it can probably be five.
Accoring to Northern Rivers Echo, from the five ideas George R. R. Martin does have a bad news to Ser Duncan the Tall, King Aegon V Targaryen and Robert Baratheon fans, unfortunately those ideas of Dunk and Egg and how young Robert took the Iron Throne did not make it to the cut. Reason behind is he only wrote 3 novels for Dunk and Egg and Robert's rebellion is already included until the end of "A Song of Ice and Fire."
Martin also confirms that exceptional writers Max Borenstein, Jane Goldman, Brian Helgeland, and Carly Wray are helping him develop new concepts for the sequel. This puts joy to the main writer because he admits that he is a slow writer who likes to take time and cannot catch up to the fast pace television requirements. He is also happy with the concept the team has developed that not all sequels which only focus in Westeros, other worlds and location may also be tackled.
Out of the co-writers slated to join Martin, he is pretty much very excited about the fifth one. He hinted that he is a terrific addition and cannot think of anybody else who know and loves Westeros as well as he does. Fans are guessing that this can be Ryan Cogman who is both a Game of Thrones producer and which has a significant presence in the writer's room since Season 1.
According to The Guardian, George R. R. Martin on the other hand is already at the verge of completing The Winds of Winter, the penultimate book in his "A Song of Ice and Fire" novel series. We can also expect a lot of teasers about the books progress because George R. R. Martin's decision to move from 140 character limited Twitter to Live Journal blogging will give fans more to read and look out for. No definite time frame yet of the total move, but it is slowly happening.
As of this writing, George R. R. Martin is yet to confirm the spinoff plans for "Game of Thrones" Season 7.
