HBO doesn't say it outright, but all signs point to it being true: fans of The Iron Throne will have plenty of new episodes to watch.
The ways of The Iron Throne are endless, or so it seems. HBO is reportedly in talks to develop three more spinoffs of the hit fantasy TV series. As many of you may know, the show is created by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss and is the television adaptation of the "Chronicles of Ice and Fire" series of novels written by George R.R. Martin.
The saga tells the adventures of a large group of characters and is set in a fictional world, consisting of Westeros in the West and Essos in the East. The main city is called King's Landing where we also find the famous Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms: the different factions fight to conquer the throne. The TV series consists of 8 seasons and ended in 2019. It had a record number of viewers and for this reason, the production company HBO thought of developing several projects from the mother series. The latest news concerns the possible arrival of three prequels that will enrich even more the franchise.
The Iron Throne: what we know about the new spin-offs
The news comes from Casey Bloys, head of content at HBO, who had made it clear that he was very busy looking for new content related to The Iron Throne. The anticipation was then confirmed by Deadline, a magazine specializing in entertainment, but of course there is still no official news from HBO.
According to rumors, the first spin-off would already be at an advanced stage. The title should be 9 Voyager and would be centered on the character of Lord Corlys Velaryan, the so-called Sea Serpent. He is a secondary character, a navigator of Westeros.
The character will also be present in House of Dragon, another spin-off already confirmed. We'll likely see him streaming in 2022. The actor who will play Lord Corlys is Steve Toussaint, known for his role in the movie Prince of Persia - The Sands of Time.
The second spin-off will be an animated series set in the setting of Flea Bottom, a very poor neighborhood in King's Landing. Among the characters that could appear in this show are Ser Davos and King Robert's son, played by Liam Cunningham and Joe Dempsie, respectively.
Finally, the third project is titled 10,000 Ships and is centered on an event from Nymeria's life.
The Iron Throne: other confirmed spin-offs
Aside the three shows awaiting confirmation, there are others that are already in production. Among these are Tales of Dunk and Egg, centered on events that took place about ninety years of the events told in the mother series. The series recounts the adventures of Ser Duncan the High and Aegon V of the Targaryens.
There is also House of Dragon, another prequel series, set about 300 years before the events told in The Iron Throne. But again, we'll have to wait about a year to watch it. But in the meantime, you can enjoy The Iron Throne on NOW TV.
