Game of Thrones: Three potential spin-offs emerge

Game of Thrones

It seems that HBO has great aspirations for the world and history of Game of Thrones (Game of Thrones here). In the past months we have already learned about the upcoming new House of the Dragon series, based on the novel Fire and Blood, the literary prequel to A Song of Ice and Fire; and already there is talk of a series inspired by The Knight of the Seven Kingdoms.

Recently, however, the authoritative Variety reported that according to its sources HBO would be evaluating three other projects that could expand and further investigate the background of the world created by George RR Martin.

"The 9 Voyages" or "Sea Snake": starring Corlys Velaryon, lord of the homonymous family and nicknamed (in fact) "The Sea Snake", he was known for having accomplished numerous trips aboard his Ice Wolf ship that took him to many places in Westeros, but also to some places in Essos. Thanks to his travels, she accumulates such wealth that she can even rival the Lannisters. He will later end up being the husband of Princess Rhaenys Targaryen and being made Hand Knight. For the series the screenwriter Bruno Heller (Rome, The Mentalist, Gotham) would be involved.

“Flea Bottom”: a series focused on the labyrinthine suburbs of King's Landing in all their decay and shame. Among the characters involved in the series there would be several characters already seen in the original series including Davos Seaworth played by Liam Cunningham, Gendry played by Joe Dempsie, the Armeca prostitute played by Sahara Knite, and the Night's Watch Karl Tanner played by Burn Gorman.

10,000 Ships: a series starring Princess Nymeria of Rhoyne, a character who, after the defeat and consequent loss of her kingdom at the hands of the Valyrians, brings her people from Essos to Dorne, eventually marrying Mors Martell and allying himself with his house; this alliance helped the house to impose itself on the others and to unify the region of Dorne. Inspired by the story of the "warrior princess" Arya Stark gives the name of Nymeria to her direwolf.

At the moment HBO has neither confirmed nor denied this news, but Deadline points out that in the past Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer of HBO, had already stated that they were talking about expanding various areas of the franchise by working together with George Martin.

While waiting for the new House of the Dragon series, we recommend that you retrieve the prequel book of A Chronicles of Ice and del Fuoco entitled Fire and Blood, which you can find on Amazon at this link.

'Game of Thrones': HBO developing three more spinoffs

March 19 (UPI) -- Three more Game of Thrones spinoffs are in the works at HBO.

Variety reported Thursday that HBO is developing new series set in the same universe as Game of Thrones, which had an eight-season run from 2011 to 2019.

Game of Thrones is based on the A Song of Ice and Fire book series by George R.R. Martin. Deadline said HBO is now working on the TV series 9 Voyages, aka Sea Snake, 10,000 Ships and Flea Bottom.

9 Voyages hails from Rome creator Bruno Heller, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series centers on Lord Corlys Velaryon, aka the Sea Snake, the head of House Velaryon and the husband of Rhaenys Targaryen. Steve Toussaint will play the character in HBO's prequel series House of the Dragon.

10,000 Ships follows the warrior queen Princess Nymeria, an ancestor of House Martell who founded the kingdom of Dorne. The series takes place roughly 1,000 years before the events of Game of Thrones.

Flea Bottom centers the titular Flea Bottom, the King's Landing slum where characters like Davos Seaworth and Gendry Baratheon were born.

HBO ordered House of the Dragon, a series based on Martin's novel Fire & Blood, in October 2019. The show takes place 300 years before the events of Game of Thrones and recounts the history of House Targaryen.

HBO shared concept art for House of the Dragon in December.

HBO is also reportedly developing a series based on Martin's Dunk and Egg novellas.
