In an interview with TVLine, Casey Bloys, head of content for HBO, spoke about the possible fallout from “ Game of Thrones, ” revealing that the focus is on prioritizing stories from this universe that will appeal to fans.
“Obviously we know that George [R.R. Martin] has this extremely rich universe, with complex stories and all these characters. So we try to think about which of these stories is worth telling. What would be interesting? What will the fans love? The Tales of Dunk and Egg is one example, but it’s not the only one.
He adds: “We will let creativity dictate what we do.”
It should be remembered that the first spinoff series, titled “House of the Dragon”, is already in development.
The story will take place 300 years before the events of “Game of Thrones” and will follow Daenerys’ ancestors as Casa Targaryen collapses.
The cast will include Olivia Cooke (‘Bates Motel’), Emma D’Arcy (‘Truth Seekers’), Matt Smith (‘ The Crown ‘), Rhys Ifans (‘ The Spectacular Spider-Man ‘), Steve Toussaint (‘ Prince of Persia ‘), Eve Best (‘ Nurse Jackie ‘) and Sonoya Mizuno (‘ Maniac ‘).
Production is expected to start in 2022.
Created by George RR Martin and Ryan J. Condal, the series is based on the novel “Fogo & Sangue”.
Ten episodes have been ordered for the first season.
