Martin explained that the five spinoff shows are moving forward are varying speeds:
“…the five successor shows are moving forward at various rates of speed […] And there are a couple other TV projects that I can’t tell you about… how much of this will come to pass, nobody knows. Ah, the joys of development…”
The four writers developing the projects are Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Brian Helgeland (Legend), and Carly Wray (Mad Men, The Leftovers). Game of Thrones executive producers and showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff are attached to all four projects as well.
