With the final season of Game of Thrones at the halfway point, more attention has been paid to the numerous spinoffs that have been discussed to possibly replace the award winning show. While only one has proceeded to requested pilot stage, the others have been mired in rumors and uncertainty. Part of this began when it was announced that Bryan Cogman’s spinoff was no longer happening.

In an effort to clear the air some, Game of  Thrones creator George R.R. Martin posted on his blog about the different “successor” entries to one of the most successful shows on television:

Oh, and speaking of television, don’t believe everything you read. Internet reports are notoriously unreliable. We have had five different GAME OF THRONES successor shows in development (I mislike the term “spinoffs”) at HBO, and three of them are still moving forward nicely. The one I am not supposed to call THE LONG NIGHT will be shooting later this year, and two other shows remain in the script stage, but are edging closer. What are they about? I cannot say. But maybe some of you should pick up a copy of FIRE & BLOOD and come up with your own theories.

While it might be a shameless plug to drum up some book sales, Martin’s Fire & Blood, about the history of House Targaryen, may indeed contain some clues about the future spinoffs (excuse me, I mean successors) to Game of Thrones. Does Martin’s assurances about the future of the world he created put you at ease? Or are you solely focused on the final three episodes of Game of Thrones and you’ll worry about what comes next after? Share your thoughts with us in either case at GVNation.
