Game Of Thrones: HBO Boss Gives An Update On The Spin-Offs
Only House of the Dragon ... for now.
HBO is developing multiple Game of Thrones spin-offs, but so far only one--House of the Dragon--is actually being made. HBO boss Casey Bloys recently reiterated to reporters that House of the Dragon is the only new Game of Thrones show in production currently, though development continues on other possibilities as well.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bloys said people incorrectly assume that a show being in development means it's actually being produced. This is not true. For the other Game of Thrones shows in development--but not production--HBO will decide how to move forward based on their scripts and what stories jump off the page.
"The good news about Game of Thrones is kind of that everything you do becomes news. Any script that is developed, or any idea that is pitched becomes news … and people assume that they are in production," Bloys said. "The only Game of Thrones show in production is House of the Dragon. We have various other scripts in development, and like everything else we will make a decision based on scripts, what stories we like. So there is nothing else green-lit at the moment, but a lot of interesting development."
House of the Dragon is based on George R.R. Martin's book Fire & Blood. The story follows House Targaryen and is set 300 years before the Game of Thrones story.
The first House of the Dragon images were recently released, showing off Matt Smith (Doctor Who) as Prince Daemon Targaryen and Emma D'Arcy (Truth Seekers) as Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen. House of the Dragon is scheduled for release in 2022.
