Since the beginning of the show, Game of Thrones has been one of the most celebrated series in the history of television. The thrills, the horrors, the countless plot twists within plot twists—people love that. Not to mention, the TV series remained faithful to the books most of the time.

There’s not much information about the “Game of Thrones” spinoffs on HBO, but it was confirmed that they will all be prequels and that no existing characters will be included. It was also confirmed that no GoT Spinoff will be aired until the main series ends with Season 8 next year.

George R.R. Martin, the writer of "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series upon which “Game of Thrones” is based on, as well as Jane Goldman, the screenwriter of "Kick-Ass" is currently developing one of the spinoffs.

The GoT spinoff

In May, HBO said that they were keen to capitalize the success of “Game of Thrones” being one of the most celebrated television series and expand it further. Four spinoffs are being developed by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss with hopes that the project will live up to the main series, which ends after the next season. Although Martin confirmed that he will not be the scriptwriter, he will still be involved in the development of the spinoffs.

While the plot of the GoT spinoff is still kept a secret, Jane Goldman teased in an interview with IGN recently, saying that if she read the books or watched the series, she would recognize the events from the past.

Goldman made it clear that it will be familiar to the fans. The "Game of Thrones" fandom is thrilled for the upcoming spinoffs and could not help but speculate. However, it might be too early to drop occasional hints.

Why should the spinoff be a direct prequel to the main series?

HBO is starting to build a “Game of Thrones” multi-series franchise that will probably continue to grow as long as the viewers are still watching it.

But why should the spinoff be a direct prequel to the series?

There are many possible options to choose from: the tales about the Children of the Forest, the legends of the Night’s Watch, the Night King’s legends, and much more. But what is more apparent is that the spinoff will start from Robert’s Rebellion, where all the events began and unfolded.

In addition to that, Jane Goldman mentioned the other writers who are developing the project such as Max Borenstein, Brian Helgeland, and Carly Wray. Goldman said that Martin’s involvement in the development varies from project to project.
