- Why the Game of Thrones fans are loosing it
over the latest George R.R. Martin news.
Are we living in a groundhog day scenario because seriously
for a show that has been off the air for almost half a year,
this week has been packed to brim with Game of Thrones
and Game of Thrones adjacent stories.
And on Tuesday we even got more news about the
fantasy franchise when new details revealed
the fate of the two spin off shows that were in development
for HBO.
The first was bad news and that the untitled prequel
set thousands of years before Game of Thrones,
that had also shot a pilot this year was not moving forward.
The good news being that the other prequel series based
on the Targaryen family history
called House of the Dragon.
Got a straight to series order
for the premium cable channel.
And now the creator and author of the entire world
that holds Westeros and Essos, George R.R. Martin
has weighed in on the future of the world of Game of Thrones
both on-screen and on the page
and this update has fans excited.
Taking to his, Not A Blog, George R.R. Martin
or as Kyle Anderson insist we call him
George Railroad Martin,
wrote about the two successor series.
He first opened things up by announcing the
House of the Dragon series and said it is based on the
fictional Archmaster Gyldayn's history
of the Targaryen family.
Fire and Blood which was written by old railroad himself.
He went on to praise the minds behind the series,
veteran Game of Thrones director Miguel Sapochnik
and producer Ryan Condal.
He then revealed that House of the Dragon has been
in development for several years,
though the title has changed a couple of times
during that process.
It was actually the first concept I pitched to HBO
when we started talking about a successor show
way back in the summer of 2016.
But it wasn't all peaches and cream.
He also expressed sadness about the loss
of the other spinoff writing HBO Also announced that
it has decided not to proceed with the other successor show
we had in development.
The one I kept calling The Long Night,
though it was and remains officially untitled.
The pilot for which was shot in Northern Ireland
last spring and summer.
Set thousands of years before either Game of Thrones
or House of the Dragon and centered on the Starks
and the White Walkers.
Yeah it goes without saying that I was saddened to hear
the show would not be going to series.
Martin then added,
I do not know why HBO decided not to go to series
on this one, but I do not think it had to do
with House of the Dragon.
This was never an either or situation.
However, he did include a hopeful note.
If television has room enough for multiple CSIs
and Chicago shows.
Well Westeros and Essos are a lot bigger with thousands
of years of history and enough tales and legends
and characters for a dozen shows.
Despite the sad news Martin included a rather
healthy outline for the work ahead on House of the Dragon.
Ryan Condal has already done a considerable amount of
writing on the House of the Dragon,
but a lot of work remains ahead of us.
There's a writer's room to be assembled,
episodes to be broken down and scripted,
a casting crew to be assembled,
budgets and production details to be worked out.
As yet, we don't even know where we will be shooting,
though I expect we will revisit at least some of the
countries David and Dan used for Game of Thrones,
Ireland, Iceland, Scotland, Croatia, Morocco, Malta
and Spain.
While no doubt audiences are excited to see the direction
this series takes,
there was one little tidbit in Martin's Not A Blog,
that has kicked the fan hype train into overdrive.
I expect to be involved in all of this to some extent
and who knows if things work out I may even be able to
script a few episodes
as I did for the first four seasons for Game of Thrones.
But let me make this perfectly clear,
I am not taking on any scripts until I have finished
and delivered Winds of Winter.
Winter is still coming and Winds remains my priority
as much as I'd love to write an episode of House.
Wait, George R.R. Martin wants to write for House MD?
That show has been off the air for years.
(drum roll)
All jokes aside, while fans would be excited to see him
write for Game of Thrones series again,
it's the implication of what he's saying that has fans
over the moon.
If the Winds of Winter is his priority and he won't take on
any scripting duties until he's delivered that
and he expects to be involved with House of the Dragon
in some way.
Well that had fans theorizing and speculating
that the long awaited sixth book, the Winds of Winter
might be much much much closer to hitting bookshelves
than anyone expected.
Could this really be the case?
Could we see the next book in this century?
It's quite possible.
Obviously this statement could just be a reaffirmation
of his commitment to writing instead of a coded message
that he is close to finished.
But with a book series as layered and deep as Martins,
it's hard not to read into what he says.
Plus, it's just more fun to hold onto hope that
something great is on the horizon.
But I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
And if there's something fans of a song of Ice and Fire
are good at, it's waiting.
But what do you folks think?
Are you excited for House of the Dragon?
Do you think that the Winds of Winter
is close to coming out?
And what other Game of Thrones successor shows
would you like to see from old railroad?
Let's discuss.
Thanks for watching.
