‘Game of Thrones’ Showrunners Not Involved in Potential Prequel Series

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have always said the show has a firm endgame, and Benioff, Weiss, and HBO came to the agreement that the series will indeed conclude after Season 8. However, that’s not necessarily the end of Game of Thrones forever, as HBO has expressed interest in a possible spinoff or prequel series given the wealth of content.

Benioff and Weiss were asked about this, replying with a firm “Thanks, but no thanks.”:

“You might want to ask George about that,” Benioff said, gesturing to Thrones book author George RR Martin, who attended the awards show with them. “It’s a great world that George created. It’s a very rich world. I’m sure there will be other series set in Westeros. But for us, this is it.”


In these past five years Weiss and Benioff and have not really had a break, so it’s no surprise that once Game of Thrones ends, they’ll be happy to move onto other things.

As for a potential Game of Thrones prequel series or spinoff, there’s certainly a wealth of content at HBO’s disposal, but the network has not yet confirmed that they are moving forward with such a show.

    In such a rich world like Westeros, I can see the interest in spinoffs. But I think there is a fine line between just enough and too much of something. I personally haven’t had my share of GoT and am dreading the ending. If the same attention to detail and production value went into a spinoff, I wouldn’t turn my nose at it. Don’t disappoint me, HBO!

      HBO has rarely disappointed me yet, but let’s hope that this will not change through the spin-off!

    I agree with them. I am perfectly happy with what they are doing with George R.R Martin’s world, bringing it to life.

    I’ve still got 2 seasons of GoT to get through but I love the show. I think it would depend on what direction they took with a spin-off/prequel but there’s plenty of scope for it and would definitely have to check it out.

    News on the rumoured Game of Thrones spin-off/prequel and an absolutely fabulous picture of Tyrion.


  5. I think I would move on to another series. The Game of Throne series is enough. I am not interested in a prequel.
