Hello Game of thrones fans!
EW made an announced that HBO is currently in the process to propose four different spinoff shows to Game of Thrones. If all ideas are approved, HBO will produce them.
“The pay TV network is determined to find a way to continue the most popular series in the company’s history and has taken the highly unusual step of developing four different ideas from different writers. The move represents a potentially massive expansion of the popular fantasy universe created by author George R.R. Martin. If greenlit, the eventual show or shows would also mark the first time HBO has ever made a follow-up series to one of its hits.” — Entertainment Weekly
This are some ideas of whats been said that fans deserve for spinoff(s) and what fans would actually want to learn more about in the fantastic world of Westeros.
Idea #1: The North, The Wall, The Watch
The North has been a favourite in the process of all seasons of GOT, thats why We’d love to see:
a)The process of building the Wall.
b) The beginning of the night Watch.
c) How the war with the Wildlings started. Not to mention, this way we’d get to see more of The White Walkers and how they came to wage war against The Children.
Idea #2: The Targaryens
This is an obvious choice, but for anyone that has read The World of Ice and Fire by GRRM, then you’re even more excited.
The history of how the Targaryens left Valyria, settled at Dragonstone, and ventured to Westeros is incredibly interesting even in this pseudo-encyclopedia, and the family drama alone is enough to fill at least seven whole seasons.
Idea #3: Valyria and DRAGONS!
We really think old-school Valyria would be AWESOME and something every Game of Thrones fan would want to see. Back in Valyria, the Targaryens were pleebs compared to the rest of the dragon-blood folk of the city. How nuts would it be to dive into the politics of those strong and powerful? We can only imagine that immunity to fire is only one of the many powers these people had. There’s way too much mythology to unfold.
Idea #4: The World of the Old Gods
The Children could be covered in idea #1, but we’d love to see the entirety of the world of The Old Gods and how the people of The North/The First Men interacted and lived around them. There were probably people warging all over the place, wizard-like folk, more Red-priestess types, etc.
Idea #5: The Era of The Mad King (Rhaegar, Young Ned, Tywin, and Lyanna)
Ned Stark died too soon. Like, way too soon. We’re still not over it. Ned knew more than anyone, and we want to see what happened leading up to Lyanna’s and Rhaegar relationship, the aftermath, and the secret politics that had to have happened leading up to and after The Mad King was killed.
The first few seasons of this idea could even dive into young Tywin and his time as Hand of the King, and the upbringing of this three children. As much as we despised Tywin towards his death, he was a character we loved to watch, and we bet he was actually a solid dude back in the day before he became bitter (and a massive dick.)
