Game of Thrones showrunners say there won’t be a prequel. George R.R. Martin calls it speculation
Since Game of Thrones is set to meet its end after its 8th season, fans are wondering whether there is more to the world of Westeros that author George R.R Martin created. When this question was put forward to the show runners David Benioff and D.B Weiss, they gave a clarification on their side, saying that they wouldn’t consider doing a prequel, and that it was all in the hands of author George R.R Martin. At the Emmys backstage interview, Benioff and Weiss revealed that this was it for them when it comes to Game of Thrones.
“You might want to ask George about that,” said Benioff to reporters backstage. “It’s a great world that George created. I think it’s a very rich world, and I’m sure there will be other series set in Westeros, but for us, this is it. That’s really a question for George.”
Martin took to answer the question in his own way, and claimed that since he is too busy finishing another two novels, the possibility of a prequel is way over in the future, and that he might consider it based on all of the fictional history that he’s got for the world of A Song of Ice and Fire.
“At the moment, we still have this show to finish, and I still have two books to finish, so that’s all speculation,” Martin said.
