Fans of Game of Thrones will not have to wait long to return to the world of Westeros after the show wraps up with its eighth season as HBO has announced that multiple spin-offs are currently in the works. The premium cable channel has partnered with four different writers–none of which have current ties to the series–to start developing prequels, sequels, and/or spin-offs to their hit series. George R.R. Martin will be working directly with two of the writers, and while the current showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff will not be involved with developing these projects, they will executive produce along with Martin. Whether all four of these project eventually go into production remains to be seen, but it is apparent that HBO wants to continue to mine the rich world of Westeros created by Martin.
