HBO programming president Casey Bloys says the network is still considering more Game of Thrones spin-off series set in the world created by George R.R. Martin.
Game of Thrones ended a couple of months ago, but HBO is already working on the future of the franchise. HBO is developing many spin-offs, with Jane Goldman’s project moving forward first. That Game of Thrones spin-off recently wrapped filming on its pilot. At the Television Critics Association press tour on Wednesday, HBO’s Casey Bloys revealed to The Wrap that the network is still considering two other spin-off scripts:
“I think we have one or two more scripts. But we’re gonna see what happens with this one.”
As far as that first series is concerned, the HBO head wasn’t willing to share any new information:
“Nope nope nope. Nothing to share. That I’m not gonna tell ya,”
