Since George R.R Martin‘s book seriesA Song of Ice and Firewas brought to life on television via Game of Thrones, we’d love it if there were more of Martin’s universe being recreated on screen to help us get through life once the show ends. Just when we thought our life was about to be empty post Game of Thrones, a new TV series based on Martin’s anthology series‘Wild Cards’ is in the process of creation. Martin dropped this bomb on his recent blog.

He wrote, “We have some exciting [news] for all the ‘Wild Cards’ fans out there. Universal Cable Productions (UCP) has acquired the rights to adapt our long-running ‘Wild Cards’ series of anthologies and mosaic novels for television. Development will begin immediately on what we hope will be the first of several interlocking series.”

Goodreads gives the description of Wild Cards as following:

“‘Wild Cards’ is a science fiction and superhero anthology series set in a shared universe. The series was created by a group of New Mexico science fiction authors, and mostly edited by George R. R. Martin. While most of the books are made up of individual short stories, they generally focus on a central theme or event. There were also several longer storylines which run through several of the books. Some volumes use the format of a mosaic novel. This involved several writers writing individual storylines which were then edited together into one novel length story. Finally, some volumes are a complete novel written by a single author.”

Well, at least we’ll have something more to keep us hooked after Game of Thrones meets its inevitable and close end.
