The end of Game of Thrones is rapidly approaching, and fans are beginning to wonder what they'll do with their lives once the Song of Ice and Fire concludes. HBO is looking to fill that vacuum: the network is developing four Game of Thrones spin-offs by four different writer groups, all of which involve author George R.R. Martin. Details about these spin-offs have been kept pretty well under wraps - we know they're all prequels, but it's still uncertain whether all four will be picked up for a season. No current characters are slotted to return, and showrunners D.B. Weiss and Dan Benioff will be stepping away to pursue their controversial next project Confederate. For a while, that's all we've known.
Now, several spin-off writers are giving GoT fans a taste of what's to come:
Screenwriter and “Kick-Ass” producer Jane Goldman is working on one of the spinoffs. In an interview with IGN this week, she commented:
I think as a book reader or as someone who watched the series, you would say, ‘Oh, that! OK. Yeah, it would be recognizable as a past event, but I think that’s probably as far as I can go.
