These Are All Of The Game Of Thrones Prequels, Sequels And Spinoffs

Almost two years have passed since Game of Thrones, arguably the biggest show in the world, came to an end after eight seasons in 2019.

In the time that has passed since its grand finale, HBO and George R.R. Martin, the man behind this mega-franchise, have been hard at work behind the scenes to find every way possible to keep the Game of Thrones universe going.

From prequels, spin-offs, an animated series and even a west end, it's fair to say that even the most dedicated Game of Thrones fan will have a hard time keeping up with all the latest developments from Westeros.

Luckily, Tyla is here to help you through all the confusion with a guide to every Game of Thrones prequel, sequel and spin-off currently in development - get ready because it's quite a long list.

House of the Dragon

The first one on our list appears to be the one that is the farthest along in terms of development and production. House of the Dragon is based on George RR Martin's book, Fire and Blood, and is being directed by Miguel Sapochnik.

It is set to air for 10 episodes to start off with, and is being tipped for "sometime in 2022," according to Deadline.

House of the Dragon is set 300 years prior to Game Of Thrones. It centres around King Viserys I Targaryen, and the Targaryen family at the height of their power.

According to the book's synopsis, we can expect it to cover several of the major historic battles, like the Dance of Dragons (aka the Targaryen civil war). The Doom of Valyria will also feature, as the book spans 150 years of the white haired family's reign.

Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, and Emma D'Arcy have all signed up for the spin-off, according to Deadline. Doctor Who star Matt will play Prince Daemon Targaryen, a masterful warrior, the King's younger brother and his heir.

HBO's president of programming, Casey Bloys, told the publication that writing begAn on the show in January, but he added that there was a lot of prepping before it would be ready for screens, seeing as it is a "big, complicated show".

Ryan Condal and Miguel Sapochnik will serve as executive producers, alongside Vince Gerardis and Martin.

The official Game Of Thrones Twitter account even teased the show was being made this year. "Dragons are coming. #HouseoftheDragon begins production in 2021," a tweet wrote, with a snap which may well give us a hint at a very ferocious looking dragon.

Tales of Dunk and Egg

In January this year, Variety reported that a TV adaption of the book Tales of Dunk and Egg was in early development at HBO. The book - which is also written by George R.R. Martin, explores the events before Game of Thrones.

If the show is commissioned, it will follow the adventures of Sir Duncan the Tall (Dunk) and a young Aegon V Targaryen (Egg) 90 years prior to the events of A Song of Ice and Fire.

There are three novellas in the Tales of Dunk and Egg series - The Hedge Knight, The Sworn Sword and The Mystery Knight. In 2015 the three novellas were published together under the title A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.

Variety reports that the project does not have a writer attached but according to their exclusive sources, making a TV adaption of Tales of Dunk and Egg is a "high priority" for HBO.

9 Voyages aka Sea Snake, Flea Bottom and 10,000 Ships

HBO are working on three new prequel ideas with the working titles: 9 Voyages aka Sea Snake, Flea Bottom and 10,000 Ships, Deadline reports.

According to Deadline, 9 Voyages already has a team working on it consisting of George R.R. Martin and The Mentalist creator and Gotham producer Bruno Heller.

The title refers to the long voyages at sea aboard the Sea Snake ship made by Lord Corlys Velaryon and later his grandson, Lord Alyn Velaryon.

The next proposed prequel, 10,000 Ships, relates to the journey made by warrior queen Princess Nymeria and the surviving Rhoynar after their defeat by the Valyrian Freehold in the Second Spice War.

This Rhoynish migration occurred about a thousand years before the start of A Song of Ice and Fire.

Flea Bottom was previously featured in Game of Thrones and it references a part of King's Landing, the capital of Westeros. It's where the poor live as do many prostitutes and thieves.

Untitled Animated Series

Yep, you read that correctly - an animated Game of Thrones series. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the animated series - which has yet to officially get the green light - is in early development at HBO Max.

The tone of the show will be just as gritty and dark as the original series. We don't know if the potential series will feature any of the original cast members in voiceover roles but stay tuned for more!

Untitled West End Play

George R.R. Martin is said to be working on a play inspired by the books, according to an exclusive by Hollywood Reporter.

The untitled play will be set during a very important moment in the history of Westeros, The Great Tourney at Harrenhal, a contest which took place just 16 years prior to the events in the Game of Thrones series.

We don't know which characters are set to appear in the stage adaption but according to Martin's books, attendees included Robert Baratheon, Ned Stark, Prince Oberyn, Jaime and Cersei Lannister.

Jon Snow's secret parents, Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, also attended.

Once pre-production on the play is completed, it is set to be performed in London's West End, New York's Broadway and a unnamed location in Australia in 2023.
