Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin upped the ante on our four potential spinoffs with a fifth, and the secrecy may have been justified. One of the series’ most involved writers is now attached to the fifth, directly partnering with Martin himself.
Theories that are dead may never die, and Game of Thrones fans will cling to some possibilities long after the show passes them by. One such fan is none other than George R.R. Martin himself, who thinks HBO erred in leaving out Catelyn Stark’s famously stone-hearted return.
About a decade ago, one of the hot new trends in the film industry was states writing tax credits into their statutes and regulations for the film industry. The idea was that rather than making California and Vancouver double for every city in North America, Hollywood would be able to shoot on location at roughly the same cost and local business would benefit from access to studio productions. Of course, there is an obvious flaw with this plan: while studios might gain access to locations through tax credits, the local infrastructure they need — stages, technicians, union members — is often nowhere to be found. As recently as August 2016, Variety had declared this a dead experiment.
Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin wouldn’t dare confirm The Winds of Winter to be published in 2017, but fans of the Song of Ice and Fire franchise will nonetheless get a new corner of Westeros to explore in print. Martin confirms that previously-unread short “The Sons of the Dragon” will see the light of day in a new 2017 fantasy anthology.
By now, you’ve likely seen some dozen of permutations on the sentiment that Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin must have written 2016, given all the high-profile deaths. Most recently, fans lost both Star Wars’ Carrie Fisher and Watership Down author Richard Adams, for which Martin offer his own thoughts on this “wretched year.”
We’ve too many questions for the remaining two Game of Thrones Seasons to get lost in spinoff possibilities, but the prospect can’t be far from HBO’s mind. Case in point, showrunners presume HBO will make other series set in the world of Westeros, but don’t expect them to run any potential spinoffs.
Game of Thrones Season 6 has come and gone, long-since making moot any questions of George R.R. Martin speeding out The Winds of Winter to avoid spoilers, but there may at last be hope in sight. Another reported leak places Winds of Winter with an early 2017 release, at least beating Season 7 to the punch.
As HBO’s Game of Thrones gears up for its seventh year, it’s easy to forget that George R.R. Martin’s first book has been around nearly three times that, as August 1, 2016 marked the official 20th anniversary. Now, Martin reacts to that momentous occasion with news of a special edition for October, and maybe … maybe, an update on Winds of Winter.
Secrecy has proven something of a sore subject for Game of Thrones Season 6, with HBO attempting to limit the availability of spoilers (even from the press), and oftentimes failing miserably. To wit, the network even amusingly offered its final two Season 6 episode releases without any description whatsoever, but Emmy ballots for “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter” tell a different story.
HBO played a bit coy in releasing only the episode synopsis and title of Game of Thrones Season 6's eighth episode, where prior foreign leaks seemingly gave away a familiar-sounding finale title. Now, sources confirm a major battle in episode 9, and a title George R.R. Martin might smirk at for the finale.
Game of Thrones brought us all to life with its first full trailer for Season 6, teasing a certain Snow-y resurrection and plenty of new deaths for Westeros alike. We couldn’t help diving way deeper into every frame of footage, so what secrets of Game of Thrones Season 6 were hidden in the flames?
The Season 6 fate of Game of Thrones’ Jon Snow has proven both the TV industry’s best, and worst-kept secret, subject to speculation and fan sleuthing at every turn, and HBO refuses to risk any official leaks. In an unprecedented move, perhaps owing to last year’s pirated episodes, HBO will withhold any Game of Thrones Season 6 press screeners ahead of the premiere.
Once upon a time, Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin would casually dismiss notions that HBO’s fantasy smash could ever catch up to his novels. Now, with Season 5 burning to debut on April 12, and two books remaining in Martin’s series, Game of Thrones producers confirm the show will inevitably overtake, and spoil at least some material for readers.
George R.R. Martin, author of the book series 'A Song Of Ice And Fire' which the hit television show 'Game Of Thrones' is based off of, had some words for haters that think he will die before he finishes the last two books in the series.
How would you like to be a future character in George R.R. Martin next novel in his series 'A Song Of Ice and Fire', which is adapted as the hit HBO series 'Game of Thrones'. Or better yet, be a new character and be killed off in the most brutal way imaginable! Martin is giving you a chance to meet him, talk Thrones and visit the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary in New Mexico.
'Game of Thrones' creator George R.R. Martin's infamous "Red Wedding" chapter has been available to read in 'A Storm of Swords' for the better part of 13 years now, but only recently have more casual fans of the HBO series adaptation been aware of the bloody massacre from Sunday's "The Rains of Castamere." Filmed fan reactions to the event made the rounds this week, but what do
