Following the completion of the flagship series, two prequel series were announced that are said to be in the works. Blood moon with Naomi Watts (Penguin flower) Head of the ensemble and House of the Dragon with Olivia Cooke (Ready player one), Paddy Considine (The outsider) and Matt Smith (Doctor Who, the crown).

The talk of an animated adaptation of Martin’s epic fantasy world follows the break of the word that HBO was also in the early development of a possible live-action adaptation of Martin’s novel series Tales of Dunk an Egg, in the same world of GOT but 90 years before the events. However, there are currently no agreements for this adaptation either.
