Bryan Cogman's Game of Thrones Spin-off Has Been Dumped by HBO

Game of Thrones writer and co-executive producer Bryan Cogman has confirmed that he will not be helming a reported spin-off prequel with author George R.R. Martin and HBO. Last week’s episode ‘A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms’ was Cogman’s last as a writer on Game of Thrones and the end of his association with the Thrones universe. “I couldn’t think of a more beautiful episode to go out on”, Cogman told Variety.

Cogman was one of the five people working to develop various spin-off series ideas set in George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire universe, on which Game of Thrones is based. HBO cleared Jane Goldman’s idea for a pilot in June and the pre-production has started.

There’s no recent information about how the other ideas are faring, but Cogman’s version will definitely not be taken up now. He spoke in detail about this in a recent Hollywood Reporter interview as well.

“I’m definitely leaving. I was developing one of the successor shows with George … My prequel show is not happening and will not happen. HBO decided to go a different way.” 

With blockbuster episodes like ‘Oathkeeper”, “Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things”, “Stormborn”, “Kissed by Fire” under his kitty, Cogman has been one of the most consistent faces in the Game of Thrones team. But that’s all in the past now. Cogman said,

“I am done with Westeros. It’s wonderfully bittersweet. I’ll certainly miss it, but I’m excited to go out on my own and try to be in the captain’s chair of my own projects, armed with everything I’ve learned.”

The emotional tenor of Season 8 episode 2 was informed by the fact that it was Cogman’s last. For him, “It was a goodbye and a love letter to these characters and to this cast.”  And saying goodbye was by no means easy. In his words, “I’m eager to start the next chapter, but a part of my heart will always live with Game of Thrones.”

So long, Bryan Cogman. We wish you good fortune in the projects to come!

Netflix’s The Sandman releases first look at Gwendoline Christie’s Lucifer: Queen of Hell

The TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is one of DC’s most highly anticipated projects. The Netflix series garnered quite some attention, as it includes an ensemble of highly talented casts, including Game of Thrones alums. Gwendoline Christie, who played Brienne of Tarth in the fantasy series, will play a gender-swapped version of Lucifer in the show. And she is highly excited about it. Netflix has finally released a first look at Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie on a new poster of the drama series The Sandman.

Netflix’s newest DC series The Sandman provides the first look at Gwendoline Christie as the Queen of Hell, a female version of Lucifer.

At Saturday’s virtual DC FanDome event, viewers got a glimpse at the Game of Thrones alum as the series’ Lucifer, the ruler of Hell. The first look images see Christie donning dark attire and a pair of ominous-looking wings.

Netflix’s newest DC series The Sandman provides the first look at Gwendoline Christie as the Queen of Hell, a female version of Lucifer.

Based on the popular comic book series, the series is described as a “rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy in which contemporary fiction, historical drama and legend are seamlessly interwoven.” The Sandman follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he tries to fix all the cosmic and human mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.
