The author of the Game of Thrones book series, Martin also hinted at further successor shows in his blog post. He wrote, “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.”

Adding further, “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.”

The cast for this show includes Naomi Watts, Denise Gough, and Naomi Ackie.
